WWE Live Events Returning In 2022 At Earliest?

Don't expect WWE to come to a town near you anytime soon, unless you live in a town near Orlando, Florida.

WWE has abandoned their live events since the start of the ongoing pandemic, with no fans in attendance and most states implementing strict protocols.

The company's house show business was also in a state of decline so it's no surprise to see the latest reports from the @WrestleVotes Twitter feed suggest that WWE is not planning on bringing back their normal live events loop, which consists of house shows on Saturday's and Sunday's sandwiched between the live Monday Night Raw shows on Monday's and the live Friday Night SmackDown shows on Friday's, until 2022 at the earliest.

The WWE television shoots for Raw and SmackDown, as well as their weekly NXT on USA shows for the black-and-gold brand, have all emanated from the Orlando, Florida area.

The Monday and Friday TV shows for the WWE main roster typically emanate from the Amway Center in Orlando, FL., with the WWE ThunderDome virtual fan audience, while the Wednesday TV shows for the WWE NXT roster generally take place at the new Capitol Wrestling Center inside the WWE Performance Center training facility, which is also located in Orlando, FL.

It's fair to even wonder that if live events do return, whether they will be under a vastly different schedule and format.

We will keep you posted here at eWrestling.com as updates continue to surface regarding plans for the WWE live event touring schedule to return to normal.
