WWE’s next tour of Canada has been postponed until fall 2022.
As we have noted, it has already been announced that WWE is returning to Canada to record television for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic struck in early 2020. The following dates have been confirmed with tickets already on sale – Friday January 21 for a Canada Life Center SmackDown in Winnipeg, MB; Saturday January 22nd for a live WWE Supershow event at Evraz Place in Regina, Saskatchewan; Sunday January 23 for a live WWE Supershow event at the Sasktel Center in Saskatoon, SK; Monday January 24 for a RAW from Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta.

In an update, it emerged today that the January 2022 Canada tour has been canceled due to the announcement of the following new dates for the United States, with tickets going on sale Friday, December 10, replacing the original Canadian dates – Friday January 21 for a SmackDown at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville; Saturday January 22 for a live WWE Supershow event at The Corbin Arena in Corbin, KY; Sunday January 23 for a live WWE Supershow event at Mountain Health Arena in Huntington, WV; Monday January 24th for a RAW at the Huntington Center in Toledo, OH.

WWE has since released a statement confirming the postponement of the January 2022 Canadian tour. They released the following this afternoon:

The WWE Friday Night SmackDown live event scheduled for January 21, 2022 at the Canada Life Center in Winnipeg has been postponed to Friday, September 30.

The WWE Supershow live event scheduled for January 22, 2022 at the Brandt Center in Regina has been rescheduled to Saturday, October 1.

The WWE Supershow live event scheduled for January 23, 2022 at the SaskTel Center 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 on Ticketmaster.ca and all tickets originally purchased will be honored for the postponed dates.

Previously announced Superstars for the January 2022 nixed tour include WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, WWE Big E Champion, RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, Bianca Belair, Sasha Banks, Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre, Rey Mysterio, Dominik Mysterio, RAW Tag Team Champions Randy Orton and Riddle, and Rhea Ripley. It’s not yet clear if they’ll be working on the rescheduled October 2022 dates, but we’ll keep you posted.

It should be noted that the Canadian dates for 2021 are still listed on the WWE site. The RAW live event scheduled for Wednesday, December 29 at the Coca-Cola Coliseum in Toronto, Ontario is scheduled, as is the RAW live event on Thursday, December 30 at Place Bell in Laval, Que. These shows are part of the 2021 WWE Holiday Tour, and the Toronto show is the one for which WWE Hall of Fame Trish Stratus was announced earlier this week. Stratus will make a special appearance that night, but it’s unclear if she’ll wrestle.

The last WWE event to take place in Canada was the February 24, 2020 RAW episode of Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
