• Interesting Fact Regarding Brock Lesnar’s WWE Title Win
In the main event of tonight’s WWE Day 1 pay-per-view, Brock Lesnar won the WWE Championship.
The Beast is now a 9-time World Champion (6x WWE Champion and 3x Universal Champion).
This match was originally scheduled to be a Fatal 4 Way match between Big E, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens and Bobby Lashley.
However, Roman Reigns tested positive for COVID-19 earlier today, which resulted in his Universal Title defense against Brock Lesnar getting cancelled.
Lesnar was then added to this WWE Championship match, thus making it a Fatal 5 Way match.
Lesnar pinned Big E to win the match and then had a staredown with Lashley (who speared Lesnar twice during this match and even locked in the Hurt Lock, which Big E broke before being hit with the F5 for the loss).
An interesting fact that should be noted here is that Lesnar is the man who ended the WWE Title reigns of The New Day.
Before ending Big E’s title reign, Lesnar ended Kofi Kingston’s WWE Title reign in 2019.
