– It appears WWE Money in the Bank 2022 is no longer being held at Allegiant Stadium, the home of last year’s SummerSlam event. PWInsider reports that according to sources within WWE, the event will be moving out of Allegiant Stadium to MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Additionally, Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp reports that WWE also sent out the following email to fans that the event will now take place at MGM Grand, confirming the move.

An internal memo was reportedly sent today by WWE, which said, “Money in the Bank will now be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.” The event will still be held on July 2.

The report also notes that ticket holders for Money in the Bank at Allegiant Stadium will be granted access to an exclusive pre-sale to purchase tickets for the newly moved event first before tickets go back on sale to the general public, which will start on June 1. Money in the Bank tickets for Allegiant Stadium will be refunded.

This is the first time in 31 years that WWE was forced to move a planned stadium show to a smaller-sized arena since WrestleMania VII in 1991. That event was originally scheduled for the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum before moving to the LA Sports Arena. WWE stated at the time that the event was moved as the result of “security issues.”

WWE Money in the Bank 2022 is scheduled for the same night as UFC 276, which is also being held in Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena. Money in the Bank at Allegiant was part of a plan for WWE to hold premium live events in larger, grander venues.

Previously, WWE announced last August at SummerSlam that Money in the Bank 2022 was going to be held at Allegiant Stadium during July Fourth weekend. A promo video was released for the show during WrestleMania Backlash showing Cody Rhodes inside Allegiant Stadium hyping up the show. Rhodes stated in the promo that this year’s Money in the Bank match winners would win a chance to headline WrestleMania 39. The video has since been set to private on WWE’s YouTube channel after it was released.

Allegiant Stadium was still promoting ticket sales for the event as late as last Tuesday on social media. You can see an image of the email sent to fans on the move posted by Sean Ross Sapp on Twitter below:
