Possible Original Plans For WWE Day 1 Main Event
Roman Reigns’ COVID diagnosis changed plans
WWE’s Day 1 PPV event was certainly a headline making show, with Brock Lesnar leaving with the WWE Championship, having defeated Big E, Bobby Lashley, Seth Rollins, and Kevin Owens in the main event Fatal Five-Way match.
Lesnar’s inclusion into the bout was a last minute affair, after his highly anticipated WWE Universal Championship match against Roman Reigns was cancelled due to ‘The Tribal Chief’ posting a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, and a now deleted Tweet from the WWE on Fox Twitter account may have shed light on the original plans for the WWE Championship match.
The account tweeted an image of all the winners at Day 1, with their match results underneath, but under the pic of Lesnar it read ‘Big E def. Lashley, Rollins, and Owens’ indicating that Big E was potentially meant to leave Day 1 with his WWE Title firmly around his waist.
However, whilst this could indicate the original plans for the WWE Championship match before Reigns/Lesnar was cancelled, it could very easily have been a simple typing error, and we’ll likely hear more news on the original plans very soon.
