WWE Day 1 2022 is an upcoming professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event and WWE Network event produced by WWE for the Raw, SmackDown and NXT brands. It will take place on January 1, 2022 at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. It will be the first event under the WWE Day 1 chronology. It will be the company's first pay-per-view and WWE Network event to take place on New Year's Day. The event's title alludes to its New Year's scheduling and is the first PPV to have the New Year's theme since New Year's Revolution in 2007.
WWE Day 1 will feature professional wrestling matches that involved different wrestlers from pre-existing feuds, plots, and storylines that played out on WWE's primary television programs. Wrestlers portrayed villains or heroes as they followed a series of events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches.
The scheduling of Day 1 caused WWE to cancel their annual TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs event, which had been scheduled for December 19, 2021. Wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer reported that TLC was canceled to allow WWE to focus on Day 1 after November's Survivor Series. There would have also only been two weeks between TLC and Day 1, followed by the Royal Rumble in late January.
The card will include matches that result from scripted storylines, where wrestlers portray heroes, villains, or less distinguishable characters in scripted events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches. Results are predetermined by WWE's writers on the Raw, SmackDown, and 205 Live brands, with storylines produced on WWE's weekly television shows, Monday Night Raw, SmackDown Live, and the cruiserweight-exclusive 205 Live.
