WWE Day 1 Premium Live Event Cancelled

To paraphrase the band U2, all will be quiet on New Year’s Day.

Wrestlenomics reports that WWE has canceled WWE Day 1, originally scheduled for January 1, 2023 at State Farms Arena in Atlanta, GA. Originally slated to be the second ever Day 1 event, the cancellation now leaves WWE with no Premium Live Events between the WWE Survivor Series on November 26 and the Royal Rumble on January 28 next year. According to Dave Meltzer, tickets were not on sale.

Wrestlenomics was unable to confirm a reason for the cancellation, but postulated that it might have something to do with keeping Peacock owner NBCUniversal happy. New Year’s Day is the last scheduled regular season episode of NBC’s Sunday presentation of the NFL. The Los Angeles Chargers will battle the Los Angeles Rams on that date. But the report also notes that if that’s the case, three different Premium Live Events in 2021 ran against Sunday Night Football games.

Last year’s first day 1 event, also held at Atlanta’s State Farms Arena in what was heralded as the beginning of a new tradition, notable as WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns tested positive for COVID-19 on the day of the event, leading to his main event title defense against Brock Lesnar being scrapped and Lesnar being shoehorned into that night’s WWE Championship match, where Lesnar defeated Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, Bobby Lashley and then-champion Big E to win his 6th. WWE Championship. It was also the first major WWE event to use the “Premium Live Event” branding. which has since replaced “Pay Per View”.

Neither WWE Media Relations nor representatives from State Farms Arena have commented on the cancellation.
