Last week, Reigns and Lesnar confronted each other. When Reigns fired Paul Heyman, Lesnar showed up to aid him. However, the Uso brothers couldn’t stop him. Moreover, Reigns got the taste of F-5 and a short teaser for Day 1 PPV.

Earlier, Reigns was a part of Day 1 PPV in the main event. However, fans won’t be disappointed. They will see Brock Lesnar in action.

Brock Lesnar gets added to the WWE Championship due to Roman Reigns testing positive

WWE fans won’t be seeing Roman Reigns in action. However, WWE added Brock Lesnar to the WWE Championship match at Day 1 PPV. The fatal 4-way match got more intense with Brock Lesnar getting added.

Now, the WWE Championship match is a fatal 5-way match between Big E, Bobby Lashley, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, and Brock Lesnar. There will be more things to worry about for the competitors of the match. Lesnar won’t leave a golden opportunity to be the WWE Champion once again.

Big E would defend it against four other men, which will not be an easy task. The Beast’s arrival in the match would be a disaster for Big E and the others. Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens need to work hard together to keep Lesnar down.
