In one of the scheduled matches of WWE Day 1, Brock Lesnar challenged Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship. This renewed rivalry has been ongoing since SummerSlam 2021 this past August, when “The Beast” made his return by confronting Reigns following the latter’s successful title defense against John Cena. However, hours before Day 1, it was revealed that Reigns would be unable to compete following a positive COVID-19 diagnosis. Thus, Lesnar was shifted to the WWE Championship match featuring Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley, and champion Big E. In this star-studded Fatal Five-Way Match, Brock Lesnar hit Big E with the F5, securing the WWE Championship.

Brock Lensar Wins the WWE Title at Day 1

The WWE Championship victory of Brock Lesnar at Day 1 marks the sixth time that he has held the title in question. Altogether, with this latest victory, Lesnar has captured 9 world titles in total in the company. This doesn’t even begin to touch on his other accomplishments in the company, including the 2002 King of the Ring and 2003 Royal Rumble.

Brock Lensar capturing the WWE Championship at Day 1, as mentioned earlier, also marks the end Big E’s 110-day run with the aforementioned title. “The Powerhouse of Positivity” originally captured the title this past September on Monday Night Raw, cashing in his Money in the Bank opportunity on then-titleholder Bobby Lashley. Big E would defend the title in the months that followed, overcoming Lashley in a Steel Cage rematch, Drew McIntyre, and Austin Theory.
