WWE had already released the card ahead of the Day 1 pay-per-view event, a real first-aid never proposed before this year by the Stamford-based company. The scheduled matches have been conceived in such a way as to make Day 1 a great show, truly unmissable.
And the reason is obvious: it was the president of WWE, Nick Khan himself, who came up with the idea of ââsuch a concept. However, this was not enough for Vince McMahon to accept all the proposals being examined by the management and which aimed to create a truly unique night.
Indeed, quite the opposite. What is certain is that WWE wants to propose Day 1 as one of the biggest shows of the year, along with WrestleMania, Royal Rumble, Survivor Series, SummerSlam and Money in the Bank. This is why it was decided to propose another match between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns right here.
But, as mentioned, the knots are not lacking. 'WrestleVotes' has in fact learned that Vince McMahon has turned down various proposals to change the presentation, the atmosphere and the breath of the show. Among the various innovations that will not take place, we can mention the ropes of the ring, the color of the carpet and more.
Latest news on Day 1
The 'WrestleVotes' Twitter account wrote: "As for the Day 1 theme, more presentation ideas have been discussed regarding the look and feel of tomorrow's PPV. Everything from different colors to the ropes, the colors of the mats, the angles of the camera etc.
And from what I have been told, ALL these ideas have been rejected." 'WrestleVotes' did not go into detail on the discussions that led to these rejections. But, as is widely known, the right of veto and the final word on creative decisions at WWE have always been and remain the prerogative of Vince McMahon.
Other major contests planned for Saturday night's event include the Fatal 4-Way match in which WWE Champion, Big E, will defend his title from the onslaught of Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens and Bobby Lashley. Great expectation, then, accompanies the challenge between Edge and The Miz.
With the recent outbreak of COVID-19 stopping several personalities at the company, WWE ousted several prominent stars from this week's house shows to make sure any wrestlers who didn't test positive are available for Day 1.
Morgan has never won a championship in WWE and has only recently been able to wrestle her first singles match on pay-per-view. She has spent most of her career watching Becky Lynch become the most popular female superstar in the world.
Lynch returned to WWE as a heel and even attempted to injure Morgan ahead of their rematch. This is the perfect example to show how much of a threat Becky truly sees Morgan as.
