WWE has already prepared big plans for its next ppv, or Day 1, which will air on January 1st, from Atlanta. After broadcasting the last ppv of 2021, or the Big Four of the Survivor Series, the McMahons have seen fit not to hold the last ppv in December, but to anticipate one for 2022 and therefore to hold a special event before the historic Royal Rumble, which this year will be the second ppv of the year and also of January.
For the WWE special show, great challenges have already been promised, such as the match valid for the Universal title between the champion Roman Reigns, just untied from the services of Paul Heyman and the Beast of the company, Brock Lesnar, or the Fatal 4 Way between WWE Champion and Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins and Bobby Lashley, out of the latest episode of Monday Night Raw's red show.
For the Chicago public, who saw the episode of the blue show live this night, however, there were also other surprises, which concerned the future of Smackdown's Intercontinental title, precisely in view of Day One.
Latest update on Day 1
Several other matches took place during the SmackDown taping for the December 24th episode, including a multi-man Street Fight and a SmackDown Women's Championship match.
Charlotte Flair defeated Toni Storm to retain the title after reversing an inside cradle pin into one of her own. There was no mention of a potential rematch at Day 1 during the in-ring portion of next week's SmackDown, although it may get announced in a backstage segment later.
During the night, in fact, the WWE has already recorded the next episode of the blue show next week, since it will fall on Christmas Eve and therefore some spoilers have already come out from the waiting public, which obviously has not been able to keep it a surprise.
In the episode that we will see next week, there will be a Gauntlet match that will define the new No. 1 contender for the Intercontinental title currently alongside Shinsuke Nakamura, with the Japanese who will therefore have to defend his belt in the first WWE ppv of 2022.
Sami Zayn won this contest, managing to snatch this promise from the WWE officials, this night and which will last to eliminate Ricochet, so as to become the number one contender for the secondary title of the blue show, in an attempt to repossess his old title, right against Nakamura at Day One.
