Brock Lesnar To Challenge For Universal Championship At WWE Day 1

The Universal Championship will be on the line at WWE Day 1.

After having his indefinite suspension lifted last week, Brock Lesnar made his return to SmackDown on December 3, 2021, stating his intention to challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship. The Beast was interrupted, however, by Sami Zayn, who said that he would be facing Roman at Day 1 on January 1, 2022. Zayn became the number one contender last week when he won a battle royal.

Brock didn't seem thrilled about the idea of waiting and suggested Sami face Roman tonight. Sami resisted but gave in when Brock grabbed ahold of his hand and started to hurt him. Brock even told Sami that he would be in his corner tonight. Sonya Deville confirmed the title match for later tonight.

As a result, Lesnar will face either Reigns or Zayn at Day 1 in Atlanta.
