Will the start of 2022 see new champions crowned in WWE? The ‘Day 1’ PPV takes place on January 1 and it is looking like being a pretty good card. Could Brock Lesnar become Universal Champion on the very first day of the new year?
With the Royal Rumble being held on January 30, the first month of 2022 looks like being a rather busy one in WWE. By the time the month ends we should have a good idea of how WrestleMania 38 on April 3 might look.
The top match on this new ‘Day 1’ PPV sees Brock Lesnar (looking more like Hillbilly Jim every day) again challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Title. Lesnar lost a title challenge at ‘Crown Jewel’ but will he fare better this time?
One key figure in this feud has been Paul Heyman. He was recently fired by Roman Reigns or was he? Heyman has since said his career may now be over but is it all just a work. What are the chances he appears to get back with Lesnar but then turns on him and re-unites with Reigns who never really sacked him in the first place?
The word is that Reigns v Lesnar is likely to main event WrestleMania 38. If that is the case, then get your money on the loser in this match (most likely Lesnar) to win the Royal Rumble.

Big E. defends his WWE title against Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens and Bobby Lashley. Again, a title change doesn’t look likely here. Big E. needs to have a one-on-one feud rather than a match like this. Rollins is the man for that job and hopefully that is how WWE will move forward in the months leading up to WrestleMania.
The New Day bid for yet another tag title reign when challenging The Uso’s for the Smackdown tag titles. If WWE could forget all this King Woods and Sir Uso rubbish for a while, then this should be an entertaining match. The Uso’s look like retaining here to maintain the Blood Line supremacy on Smackdown.
It really doesn’t look like any titles may change hands on ‘Day 1.’ It’s hard to see Liv Morgan winning the Raw Women’s title from Becky Lynch. The champion is being used wrongly as a heel. Fans want to cheer not boo her.
If any title changes hands, it might be the Intecontinental belt. Sami Zayn keeps getting a push and may well dethrone Shinsuke Nakamura.
This is a PPV that must be entertaining and controversial. How bad would it look for WWE If ‘Day 1’ of a new year produced another terrible PPV? Now is the time for WWE to up their game and build towards the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania, they just have to get ‘Day 1’ right.
