GCW's The Collective will return for 2022 on WrestleMania weekend in Dallas, Texas on March 31, April 1 and April 2, 2022.
The 2022 edition of The Collective will be held at Dallas's Fair Park. A number of indie promotions are expected to join GCW in running shows at Fair Park. Additionally, GCW promises live wrestling events, merchandise, food trucks, plus the GCW Wrld Fair, a space for vendors, exhibits, games, podcasts, stage shows and more.
GCW debuted The Collective in 2019 in New Jersey during WrestleMania weekend. The 2020 edition was postponed until October of that year following the COVID-19 pandemic. 2021's Collective returned to WrestleMania weekend and was held in Ybor City, Florida.
Effy's Big Gay Brunch, Allie Kat's Real Hot Girl S**t, GCW Planet Death, the GCW Acid Cup, GCW For the Culture, plus Josh Barnett's Bloodsport were all held during The Collective in 2021. Joey Janela's Spring Break event is also held during The Collective each year.
