One of the WWE live events scheduled for the 2022 post-Christmas holiday tour was tonight’s show at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Travel has been an issue for millions of people in the United States over the past several days due to winter weather and WWE was also reportedly affected by the situation. Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com wrote the following…
“We are told that the kickoff for today’s Holiday Live tour, at least for the Smackdown side, included a lot of travel headaches for WWE talent and staff as flight issues led to some of them being delayed getting to New York City and others being sent to different airports than originally planned in order to salvage their travel issues.”
Johnson also noted that some were still in route as of Monday afternoon. Numerous wrestlers and staff did apparently make it to New York including Michael Hayes, Molly Holly, Jason Jordan, Adam Pearce, Alicia Taylor, The Brawling Brutes, and Maximum Male Models.
WWE reportedly sold 9,600+ tickets as of Christmas for the MSG show and with walk-ups, the company could end having over 10,000 in the building.
