WWE today announced that Brock Lesnar will challenge for the WWE Championship tonight at Day 1 against Big E, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens and Bobby Lashley in what will now be a Fatal 5-Way Championship match.

The first man to score a pinfall against any of the other four men will win the WWE Championship, in what’s expected to be one of the most exciting main events in WWE history.

Earlier today, Roman Reigns tested positive for COVID-19. As we’ve seen with many superstar athletes, this result has left Reigns unable to compete in the originally scheduled defense of his WWE Universal Championship against Lesnar. WWE wishes him well in his recovery.

Live from State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Day 1 will begin streaming tonight at 8 pm ET exclusively on Peacock in the United Sates and WWE Network everywhere else.
