Brock Lesnar was not supposed to win the WWE Title at WWE Day 1, the PPV event that took place on January 1st. He was inserted into a fatal four-way match, at the very last moment and ended up becoming the new champion, all of a sudden.

Roman Reigns tested positive for COVID-19 earlier to the PPV, which resulted in his Universal Title defense against Brock Lesnar getting canceled. Lesnar was then added to this WWE Championship match, thus making it a Fatal 5 Way. Lesnar also pinned Big E to win the match and then had a staredown with Lashley to end WWE Day 1. Now the question remains how this title change could affect the Reigns v. Lesnar program.

Ringside News was informed by a tenured member of the creative team that “the Mania plans have not changed” involving Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. The info was also explicitly channeled to the writing team after they had to mix things up for WWE Day 1.

“Brock Lesnar winning the WWE Title at #WWEDay1 was a big change of plans, but we were told that it won’t affect WrestleMania.

In addition, it was stated that Smackdown writers were told to be prepared for Roman Reigns for a return but he may not be there this coming Friday. They were also told that Lesnar is still residing on the Smackdown brand. The Beast declared himself a free agent during the WWE Draft thanks to his advocate Paul Heyman and using that loophole, he might continue to make appearances on both Raw and Smackdown.
