WWE has postponed its tour of Canada that was scheduled to take place in January 2022.
The four-show tour was set to include an episode of SmackDown, an episode of Raw, and two house shows. WWE issued a statement today announcing that the events have been rescheduled to later in the year:
The WWE Friday Night SmackDown live event scheduled for January 21, 2022 at Canada Life Centre in Winnipeg has been rescheduled to Friday, September 30.
The WWE Supershow live event scheduled for January 22, 2022 at the Brandt Centre in Regina has been rescheduled to Saturday, October 1.
The WWE Supershow live event scheduled for January 23, 2022 at the SaskTel Centre in Saskatoon has been rescheduled and will now be WWE Live on Sunday, October 2.
The WWE Monday Night Raw live event scheduled for January 24, 2022 at Rogers Place in Edmonton has been rescheduled to Monday, September 26.
Tickets are currently on sale through Ticketmaster.ca and all originally purchased tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates.
The reason for the shows being postponed wasn't announced. Dave Meltzer notes that the Winnipeg and Edmonton events had good advances, so the postponement isn't due to poor ticket sales.
The Friday, January 21 episode of SmackDown will now be held at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. The Monday, January 24 episode of Raw will take place at the Huntington Center in Toledo, Ohio.
WWE will have a house show in Corbin, Kentucky on Saturday, January 22 and a house show in Huntington, West Virginia on Sunday, January 23.
WWE still has house shows listed on their schedule for Coca-Cola Coliseum in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on Wednesday, December 29 and Place Bell in Laval, Quebec, Canada on Thursday, December 30. The shows would be the first time WWE has been to Canada since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Trish Stratus has been announced as the host of the Toronto house show.
