WWE has added several segments to Day 1

In the last PPV staged for WWE, or Day 1 that was staged on 1st January 2022, the Stamford-based company had to literally run against time, to change in run some matches, with the contest for the Universal title that was effectively eliminated from the card due to the inability of Roman Reigns to take part in the event, due to his positivity to Covid-19, a few days ago.

Apparently, the other positives of the company, namely Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins, were recovered at the very last minute, with the two taking part in their respective titled matches, with Becky keeping her title of Raw Women's Champion, while instead her husband Seth saw Brock Lesnar win the WWE Champion title.

All this, however, did not go on stage as it should have, given that one of the matches of the event on which WWE was most focused (just see the poster of the ppv in question), was precisely the match that did not exist. was, between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar, valid for the title of the Tribal Chief of Friday Night Smackdown.

Roman Reigns missed Day 1

We learned right before WWE Day 1 started that Roman Reigns had tested positive for Covid-19 and would be unable to compete tonight. Brock Lesnar was instead added to the WWE Championship match against Big E, making it a Fatal Five-Way.

The WWE Day 1 kickoff show saw Sheamus and Ridge Holland defeat Cesaro and Ricochet before we headed to the main card. As reported in the last few hours by the well-known site Fighftul, through its Fightful Select, the WWE crew and the management of the company had to consistently put their hand to the lineup of Day One, once the absence of the Universal Champion and the his match.

As reported by overseas journalists, in fact: "We are told that match timings have been adjusted, segments have been added and several video packages have been added to the lineup to help make up for the lost time slot for the WWE Universal Title match."

Although Brock Lesnar has won the WWE title at the moment in the rings on Monday Night Raw, internally the Superstar is still seen as a Smackdown athlete, with the feud against Reigns one way or another continuing over the next few months.

Kingston took some superkicks from Jey in the ring but managed to counter into a DDT before making the tag to Woods. Jey was on the ropes and Woods hit a dropkick to the neck before hitting the Side Russian Leg Sweep and a neckbreaker for a near fall at Day 1.
