• New WWE Star Congratulates Brock Lesnar Backstage After WWE Title Win (Photo)
In the main event of tonight’s WWE Day 1 pay-per-view, Brock Lesnar won the WWE Championship.
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).
Olympic Gold Medalist & WWE RAW Superstar Gable Steveson congratulated Lesnar backstage. Below is a photo:
For those who don’t know, Gable had a few training sessions with Lesnar when he was preparing for the Olympics and other competitions.
While Gable hasn’t made his official WWE debut as a Superstar yet, he was drafted to RAW last year.
Speaking of Brock, below is a video of a lucky fan with the new WWE Champion after tonight’s PPV went off the air:
