WWE held the first event of the year called Day 1 last Saturday, January 1, 2022, which had some modifications due to Roman Reigns testing positive for COVID-19. His long-awaited fight against Brock Lesnar for the universal title was canceled but The Beast still fought and became the protagonist of the show.
Lesnar was included in the four-way match against Big E, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens and Bobby Lashley. And won. The UFC fighter became the new WWE world champion, but he does not have much time to celebrate, since this last Monday, in the first episode of the year of Monday Night Raw, his next rival was revealed.
After the triumph of La Bestia, the other four participants of WWE Day 1 had a meeting, whose winner got the opportunity to challenge the brand new champion. That was Bobby Lashley, who for years has expressed his desire to face the Conqueror on any stage. It will finally be given.
El Dominador returned to WWE in April 2018 after a decade with different companies. His return was not as expected and he did not have enough notoriety, he only won the intercontinental and United States championships, but he had a reign without many lights. However, everything changed when he came under the leadership of MVP.
With him as manager, he returned to the top and won the WWE championship, but he still lacked one thing: seeing himself in a ring with Brock Lesnar, and after several years he was able to achieve it. However, this was not planned, since this happened because Reigns was ruled out for being infected with the coronavirus. His combat in the Royal Battle will be one of the most watched.
