In the last few hours, the news portals echoed the possible cancellation of DAY 1the Premium Live Event with which WWE had planned to open its calendar of dates for 2023. The show is still scheduled for January 1 at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, and its suspension could be communicated in the next few hours.
Despite not having provided a justification for this move, the latest reports from backstage have hinted at a possible unprecedented approach to the company’s most important shows. In the section “Super Followers“From his Twitter account, Bryan Alvarez pointed out that WWE plans a new dynamic for its Premium Live Events that will begin to be reflected next year.
WWE’s first idea is remove theme shows from your lineup, such as Extreme Rules, Hell in a Cell and TLC. The existence of these kinds of events has always been a debate by fans. Many claim that these kinds of stipulations should be dealt with more “out of the blue” rather than occupying a one-off position a year. This movement is strange if we consider that Extreme Rules 2022 resulted in a Premium Live Event with good reviews from the press and fans.
WWE will work on more international shows
On the other hand, the company would start bet heavily on events outside the United States. In recent years, WWE has opted for the celebration of very specific PLEs in Canada, Australia, Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom. Their last foray was with Clash at the Castle in September, which resulted in huge commercial success for the company. It is possible that this show has motivated the new management to handle more big shows abroad.
