The WWE Day 1 Premium Live Event was a great way to kick off the new year. Whether it was the amazing tag team match between The Usos and The New Day or the Becky-Liv war, this show had some great moments.
The moment most fans will remember will probably be how Roman Reigns’ positive covid test led to Brock Lesnar winning the title.
Apparently, another participant in the match Bobby Lashley wasn’t too pleased with this decision. On a recent episode of After The Bell, Lashley discussed how he originally wanted out of this match when he learned that Lesnar would be in it.
“They were like, ‘Nah, nah, you’ve gotta stay in the match,'” said Lashley. “I was like, ‘All right. Well, the times that I do lock horns with him, I’m gonna get what I need to get out of it.’ There was a lot of people that were kind of like not happy about it, but I looked at it as, ‘First, get me out of the match. If I’m staying in the match, the interactions I have with Brock, I have to make a statement.’” (H/T Sportskeeda)
Lashley is now the number one contender for Lesnar’s WWE Title as both men are set to face one another at the Royal Rumble later this month.
