In the last PPV staged for WWE, or Day One, the Stamford-based company had to literally run against time, to change some matches in the running, with the dispute 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 testing Covid-19 positive.
Apparently, the other wrestlers who'd tested positive, namely Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins, had 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.
Many are now wondering what kinds of plans WWE had in the beginning, before Roman Reigns tested positive for the swab that ousted him from the Day One card, with Brock Lesnar's victory now moving (at least temporarily), the presence of The Beast Incarnate in the rings of the red Monday Night Raw show.
Brock Lesnar was in a feud with Universal Champion Roman Reigns and the two looked set to continue their rivalry all the way to WrestleMania. With Brock now holding the gold as the new WWE Champion, fans are wondering what this now means for his feud with The Tribal Chief.
What will happen at WrestleMania?
According to what the reporters of the well-known site Ringside News tried to explain, it would seem that WWE still wants to go straight to the plans it had foreseen at WrestleMania for its two Smackdown top names: Reigns and Lesnar.
Despite Lesnar's titled victory at the Monday Night Raw title, with The Beast confirming during the Draft that he was a free agent of the company, internally the athlete still remains a Smackdown Superstar. According to reports from overseas journalists, WWE will still continue to enact the plans it had planned for Wrestlemania for the Universal Champion and the WWE Champion, with the plans that will be expertly modified to ensure that the two athletes can still clash at the Grandaddy of Them All, as established for months now.
Now it will be necessary to see what WWE will come up with to bring Brock Lesnar back to Roman Reigns before Wrestlemania, with their paths that at the moment seem more separate than ever, but with a common thread that continues to bind them indissolubly, from the name Paul. Heyman, another great absentee of Day One.
