WWE has announced that the location of the WWE Money in the Bank Premium Live Event on Saturday, July 2, 2022 has been changed.
The event was originally set to take place at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, but it has now been moved to the MGM Grand Arena.
The belief is that WWE was disappointed in the ticket sales for the show and thus made the decision to move to a smaller venue.
Obviously the actual capacities would be slightly different due to WWE’s unique stage setup, but to give you an idea, the official maximum capacity of Allegiant Stadium is 71,835, while the MGM Grand Arena’s is 17,000.
Anyone who purchased tickets for the show at Allegiant Stadium will be refunded and will have the first chance to buy tickets to the MGM Grand Arena.
There has been confusion among fans and people in WWE regarding the Money in the Bank stipulation, as WWE has continually aired commercials stating that the winners earn the chance to main event WrestleMania.
The consensus seems to be that this was just a figure of speech, because it kind of does indirectly give you that chance because you could choose to cash-in, but the way it was said made it sound like a direct prize for winning.
It was a line directly added to the commercial by Vince McMahon, and it’s been reported that “nobody has any idea” why he did.
