WWE had to run for cover last night when Roman Reigns tested positive for Covid-19, while everyone expected to see him on Day 1 for what would likely be the final chapter with Brock Lesnar. In fact, the Tribal Chief, shortly before the show and immediately after the official announcement of the WWE of Brock Lesnar inserted in a match to 5 for the WWE Championship, had written in a tweet: "I could not wait to perform tonight at # WWEDay1, to defend my title as Universal Champion.
However, unfortunately, I tested positive for COVID-19 earlier today today. Due to the protocols of the case, I am unable to compete as originally planned. I hope to be back in action. as soon as possible." Brock Lesnar shocked the entire world by becoming a six-time WWE Champion on Saturday night on Day 1.
Bobby Lashley has now sent a subtle message to The Beast Incarnate following his title victory. Shortly before the show on Saturday, Brock Lesnar was added to the fatal four-way WWE Championship match between Big E, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, and Bobby Lashley.
WWE made this change when Lesnar's original opponent, Roman Reigns was pulled from the card after he tested positive for COVID-19.
Backstage news on Bobby Lashley
In all this, after the negative news from Reigns, the right adrenaline rose in the fans to see the positive side of Lesnar's inclusion in the match: the possible physical contact in the ring with Bobby Lashley.
This feud is certainly one of the most loudly requested by the WWE Universe which perhaps could now be satisfied, because last night the two had some beautiful and intense interactions in the fight and at the end of the match there was an interesting exchange of glances.
According to what Dave Meltzer said in his Wrestling Observer Radio: "So with Lesnar as champion the next step is Lesnar vs Lashley. You could say they did a little teasing with that look at the end. So, the match was specially booked for.
go in that direction, because it was Big E who was pinned. Because if it hadn't been Big E who was pinned, then you would have chosen Lesnar against Big E." So beware that the two could challenge each other at the Royal Rumble or even continue the feud up to Wrestlemania, even if there is a long time left, but we are sure that for many the wait will be rewarded.
