WWE held their inaugural WWE Day 1 Premium Live Event on Saturday, January 1st, 2022 inside the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, which was headlined by a Fatal 5-Way Matchup for the WWE Championship between Brock Lesnar, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, Bobby Lashley and then-WWE Champion Big E. The match was ultimately won by “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar, who held the WWE Championship until the WWE Royal Rumble Premium Live Event just a few weeks later due to him losing the WWE Championship to “The All Mighty” Bobby Lashley with the help of Roman Reigns’ interference and Paul Heyman’s betrayal.
Lesnar then regained the WWE Championship at WWE’s Elimination Chamber in a dominant fashion and lost the title to Roman Reigns at WWE WrestleMania 38 in a Winner Takes All Championship Unification Match for both the WWE Title and the WWE Universal Title. PWInsider previously reported that the second WWE Day 1 Premium Live Event will take place on Sunday, January 1st, 2023 also from inside the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
WWE has advertised Brock Lesnar for their second WWE Day 1 Event, but there is no word yet on what he will be doing on the show or who he will be facing. Brock Lesnar was last seen on WWE TV at this past month’s WWE SummerSlam Premium Live Event, when he lost a Last Man Standing Match to Roman Reigns.
