By now all the opponents that WWE had thrown at its Universal Champion of Friday Night Smackdown, Roman Reigns, have been shot down as if they were sheets of paper. After yet another debacle seen on Friday at Smackdown, a new huge clash in the rings of the next ppv of the Stamford-based company is envisaged, which will be broadcast on the first day of the new year, or WWE Day One, which will be broadcast on January 1st, an unusual date for the company.
But let's go step by step. Tonight, in the last episode of the blue show that aired as always on FOX screens in America, Roman Reigns defeated his umpteenth opponent, Sami Zayn, who had earned a title shot by winning the Multi-man Battle Royal of the last week, mocking at the last second a Jeff Hardy petrified by the return of the Canadian, who by now considered already eliminated.
In tonight's episode, however, there was another loose cannon, who returned to show up in the blue show rings after weeks of absence due to his suspension, after attacking Adam Pearce, we are obviously talking about Brock Lesnar.
Roman Reigns will face Brock Lesnar
Already on the eve of the title match between Zayn and Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar had warned the two that he would challenge the winner of tonight's contest, right on Day One, with Zayn who began to feel anxiety already from the first confrontation with Lesnar .
If all this were not enough, the words into the microphone of the Canadian annoyed and not a little The Beast, who attacked before the match titled Zayn himself, with his usual German Suplex and the devastating F-5, serving on a plate of 'silver the prey now torn to Roman Reigns, who with a Spear and a Guillotine finished his opponent, keeping the title.
Now it is therefore official: Brock Lesnar will challenge Roman Reigns once again, to a match titled for the Universal Championship in WWE Day One, with the company that has made everything official with its graphics at the end of the show.
But let's see what are the matches already made official for the first ppv of 2022 for the moment: - WWE Champsionship - Triple Threat match: Big E vs Seth Rollins vs Kevin Owens - WWE Universal Championship match: Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar - WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship match: The Usos vs The New Day.
He lost his cool after he couldn’t beat Roman Reigns in the Universal Championship match at Crown Jewel 2021 due to multiple interferences, especially the one from Jey and Jimmy Uso. Before he was banned, Lesnar brutally attacked The Tribal Chief and The Usos on WWE SmackDown. There is no doubt that he will have something similar planned for the reigning champions tonight.
