World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar Seth Rollins has revealed that he has tested positive for COVID-19. Rollins was scheduled to fight at WWE Day 1 but given his condition, WWE's Vince McMahon will have to replace him for the upcoming pay per view event. Other than Rollins many big names have been pulled already from the pay per view event owing to COVID and other reasons, including WWE Champion Big E, Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair.

Rollins took to Twitter to hint that he had COVID-19 as he wished himself a 'Merry COVID Chrismas' and then went on to express his love for football. This means that the WWE superstar will miss the Day 1 mega event where he was scheduled to fight WWE Champions Big E and Kevin Owens. But now that Rollins is out, Bobby Lashley is expected to take his spot in the match card and come up against Big E and Kevin Owens.

WWE Day 1: Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar

Universal Champion Roman Reigns will again be taking on The Beast, Brock Lesnar in one of the most highly anticipated matches. It will be a fight for the Universal Title at the pay per view event and Brock will definitely want his revenge from the last time they fought. Back at SummerSlam, Lesnar made his surprise return to WWE and then fight for the Universal Title but Roman Reigns managed to hold on to his title and defeated The Beast with some help from his cousins The Usos.

Recently, when Lesnar returned to SmackDown, he attacked Reigns followed by The Bloodline but he did not stop there as he also attacked WWE official Adam Pearce which got The Beast suspended indefinitely. But his suspension was lifted soon after and he then attacked Sayn Zayn so that he could get his rematch with Reigns and it worked.

WWE Day 1 Match Card (Tentative)

  • Universal Champion Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar
  • SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch vs. Liv Morgan
  • WWE Champion Big E vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Kevin Owens
  • Drew McIntyre vs. Madcap Moss
  • Edge vs. The Miz
  • SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. The New Day (Kofi Kingston and King Woods)
  • Tommaso Ciampa vs. Pete Dunne
