Brock Lesnar will once again challenge Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship at the upcoming Day 1 pay-per-view. The two previously did battle at Crown Jewel. Some fans have wondered about the logic of putting your biggest match on just months before WrestleMania.

The idea from WWE is to have a series of matches between their two biggest draws. Dave Meltzer went into a little more detail on how this pertains to WrestleMania on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio. The plan is still in place for the two to square off at Mania in Dallas.

“It is not going to be the last Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns match, obviously there is still a plan for WrestleMania. So, that’s the basic gist of it.”

WWE hopes to transform the new Day 1 show into a major annual event. If they want to do that, they’ve got to book major matches for the show. So far, it seems like they’re not shy about scheduling top talent in top matches.


Three title matches and a big grudge match are scheduled for the show. Last night on Raw, The Miz and Edge solidified their singles match for the PPV. The New Day and The Usos will go to war over the SmackDown tag titles. Lesnar will challenge Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship. Big E’s WWE Championship will be on the line in a three-way against Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens.

Fans can rest assured that just because Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns are wrestling on Day 1, the potential for that big WrestleMania showdown is still there. In fact, it’s likely. Day 1 will air live on Peacock on January 1, 2022.
