UPDATE: WWE has unveiled some new details about their just-announced New Year’s Day PPV that will take place in Atlanta. Following Smackdown, WWE sent 411 a press release announcing that the show will stream on Peacock in the US and WWE Network elsewhere on January 1st, 2022 starting at 8 PM ET. The event is taking place at State Farm Arena in the city, with tickets going on sale August 27th at 10 AM (presumably ET) via Ticketmaster.com.

The announcement notes:

“The event will feature Superstars from both SmackDown and Raw including WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, WWE Champion Bobby Lashley, SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair, Raw Women’s Champion Nikki A.S.H, WWE Intercontinental Champion Apollo Crews, Raw Tag Team Champions AJ Styles and Omos, SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos, United States Champion Sheamus, Women’s Tag Team Champions Natalya and Tamina, Drew McIntyre, Charlotte Flair, Randy Orton, Riddle, Sasha Banks, Seth Rollins, Alexa Bliss and many more.”

“I don’t know about you but I think New Year’s Trae would be a great name for the event, and I can’t think of a better way to bring in 2022 than with the WWE Universe,” said Atlanta Hawks All-Star Point Guard Trae Young, who as previously noted made the reveal tonight.

“State Farm Arena is a phenomenal venue with a long history of hosting world-class events,” said Scott Zanghellini, WWE Senior Vice President, Revenue Strategy & Development. “We’re excited to deliver this pay-per-view to the people of Atlanta and the many that travel to the city to celebrate New Year’s.”

ORIGINAL: WWE is coming to Atlanta for New Year’s Day, announcing a PPV in the city during tonight’s Smackdown. NBA star Trae Young appeared on video after Bianca Belair’s win over Carmella on Smackdown to announce that the company will hold a PPV event in the city on January 1st, 2022.

That event will make for a rare Saturday PPV for WWE. We don’t know the name of the event yet; WWE held a New Year’s Revolution show from 2005 to 2007, though these were not events that took place on New Year’s Day itself.
