WWE will ring in the new year in style, as they present the inaugural Day 1 event live on New Year’s Day.
With a long gap since Survivor Series and no Tables, Ladders and Chairs to end the year as had become tradition for the company, WWE have set a number of high-profile matches to generate strong interest on a day when many will be looking for something to watch after a bit of over-exuberance the night before.
In a rematch from their clash in Saudi Arabia, once again Brock Lesnar will get his hands on the Universal Champion Roman Reigns. ‘The Beast Incarnate’ was unsuccessful on that occasion, and was then suspended by the company for attacking the title holder as well as many others including WWE executive Adam Pearce the following night on SmackDown. With the suspension lifted, Lesnar has already been on the warpath getting ready for his contest with ‘The Head Of The Table’.
On the red brand side of things, Seth Rollins thought he was finally going to get his one on one contest for the WWE Championship against Big E, but he’ll now be in a fatal four-way after Kevin Owens and Bobby Lashley managed to earn themselves spots in the match. There’s plenty of other action, with Becky Lynch also putting her Raw Women’s Championship on the line against Liv Morgan, and Edge in a singles match with The Miz. What a way to see in 2022!
