WWE originally intended to close out 2021 with the TLC event on Dec. 19 , reportedly set for Chicago. Instead, WWE will hold the WWE Day 1 event on New Year’s Day at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta.
“Originally there was going to be a pay-per-view in Chicago at the Allstate Arena in mid-December, and the feeling is now that doing 12 a year, and the December pay-per-view will actually be January 1 in Atlanta. The idea of doing January 1 rather than do mid-late December. And then they’re still gonna do Royal Rumble as the January pay-per-view,” Metlzer said.
“A lot of people were wondering, when they moved the December Chicago date from being a pay-per-view to being a television taping, who’s gonna get the pay-per-view? And the answer is that there is no pay-per-view.”
