WWE Shock at the Beginning of the Year: Universal Champion Roman Reigns Canceled on ‘Day One’. What is planned now …
Roman Reigns will not be in the ring in WWE “Day One”.
This was reported by WWE affiliated journalist Ariel Halawani shortly before the start of the pay-per-view broadcast (Sunday nights from 2am on WWE Network).
The reason: Reigns (the vaccinated), who has repeatedly defeated leukemia in the past, tested positive for COVID-19.
New main event schedule, Lesnar takes the title
Brock Lesnar, who should have faced the Universal Champion Reigns, will be in the match for the WWE title instead. Thus the conjunction becomes a fatal pentagon.
It is unknown if the other stars will also be absent due to COVID-19.
Roman Reigns commented on the development with a short statement on Twitter. However, the statement was read as a pre-made statement from WWE’s legal department: “I was eager to defend my world championship on day one today. However, unfortunately, I tested positive for COVID-19 today. Given the guidance provided, I can’t compete as planned. I look forward to getting back to work as soon as possible.”
Accordingly, the card looks like this shortly after the start of the transfer:
