Anything can happen in the WWE Universe.
Ahead of tonight’s WWE Day 1 pay-per-view, it was announced that Universal Champion Roman Reigns has tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, his scheduled main event match against Brock Lesnar is off of the lineup for tonight’s show.
With the main event being scratched just before the show began, WWE scrambled to change things up accordingly. A new main event has been announced, as Lesnar, now without an opponent due to Reigns being pulled from the show, will be moved to the originally scheduled Fatal-4-Way match for the WWE Championship.
The new main event of tonight’s WWE Day 1 pay-per-view at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, GA. will now feature Big E. defending his WWE Championship in a Fatal-5-Way match that includes Lesnar, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens and Bobby Lashley.
