WWE moves Las Vegas show to smaller venue

WWE’s next big show in Las Vegas has been moved from Allegiant Stadium.

The “Money in the Bank” pay-per-view event is now set to take place at MGM Grand Garden on July 2. WWE fans posted images of a poster revealing the change on social media on Thursday.

Also, various ticketing sites, including Allegiant, are no longer accepting purchases for the event on the Allegiant site. However, the MGM Grand says tickets to “Money in the Bank” at the garden goes on sale at 10 a.m. on June 3.

The change appears to be the first time an event scheduled for Allegiant Stadium has been scaled back. The stadium, which opened in 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic, has seen several sold-out concerts, including BTS last month.

Stadium events, which were mostly empty in 2020 before fully opening to fans in July 2021, drew 510,566 attendees through 41 total events between July and September, according to data from the Las Vegas Stadium Authority.

The Las Vegas Rugby Cup, scheduled for Halloween weekend last year, was canceled about a month before the competition. It was the first major canceled event at Allegiant Stadium.

In July, the WWE event will go one-on-one with a major UFC pay-per-view across the street at T-Mobile Arena, where UFC 276 is scheduled to take place.

The WWE event is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. and end well before the UFC main event.

This marks WWE’s return to Las Vegas after hosting its annual SummerSlam show at Allegiant Stadium in August.

An announced crowd of 51,326 attended the event.
