WWE has released their current scheduled for the rest of 2021, but we've already got some news about the start of 2022.
Fightful has learned that the front runner for the Royal Rumble 2022 is St. Louis, Missouri. It should be noted that as of a month ago, those we spoke to within WWE were under the impression that would be the end game. However, until the venue and city is officially announced, it isn't a guarantee. There had been speculation by several within WWE that Seattle had been considered, but we haven't confirmed that whatsoever.
WWE only last week announced Survivor Series for Brooklyn officially, and haven't even announced a PPV title for December. One of the more interesting notes about the Royal Rumble is that there has been significant internal discussion about it actually happening in early February for the first time in history. Again, until WWE officially announces it, nothing is in stone.
