As most know, Brock Lesnar found himself without a dance partner at WWE Day 1. This was after WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns was ruled out after testing positive to health and safety protocols.

In a last-minute change, the Beast Incarnate was injected into the Fatal Four-Way title match that involved champion Big E, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, and Bobby Lashley. When the smoke cleared, Lesnar pinned Big E and became the new WWE champion.

But according to Dave Meltzer, it was not the ending that the WWE had in mind. The original script did call for Big E to lose the championship but to Seth Rollins.

"The original scripted plan for the show was for Big E to lose the championship, but to Seth Rollins, who had tested positive for COVID-19 last week, and the champion instead lost his title to Lesnar as the result of another positive test," Meltzer wrote.

Had the script stayed, Rollins would have won his fifth career championship in the WWE. It would also be his first title reign since March 2020.

Hence, the best the former WWE champion can do right now is wait. Another Fatal Four-Way match happened on the Jan. 3 edition of WWE Raw with Bobby Lashley coming out on top.

Lashley will face Lesnar for the title at the 2022 Royal Rumble set for Jan. 30.

As for Lesnar, there was also a new development that hardly surprised many. The Beast has reunited with former handle Paul Heyman after the latter previously handled Reigns.

Despite already being champion, it appears Lesnar still has Reigns in sight. The Beast Incarnate plans to be on the next episode of WWE SmackDown in what should be an interesting confrontation with the Tribal Chief.
