WWE will present NXT: The Great American Bash 2022 next week. However, this year it will be a themed episode of NXT 2.0 and not a proper network special. With a couple of great matches on the card, it is shaping up to be an exciting event.
The Great American Bash has an established legacy. The first edition of the event took place in 1985. After Vince McMahon bought WCW in 2001, they brought it back as an annual pay-per-view in 2004. This continued until 2009 when it was discontinued and returned as a special episode of SmackDown in 2012.
It took eight years for WWE to revive it as a special two-week show during the July 1 and July 8, 2020 episodes of NXT.
The 2022 show is the tenth under the WWE banner and the 24th overall. If you are wondering when the show will air, we have the answer for you right here.
NXT: The Great American Bash will air on July 5, 2022. WWE announced the date during NXT: In Your House. It will air on the USA Network from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
