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.
Brandon Thurston of WrestleNomics reports that the WWE won’t be pushing through with their second Day 1 Premium Live Event and that WWE won’t be holding a Premium Live Event between their Survivor Series Event in November and their Royal Rumble Event in January, but that could change at anytime. There is no word yet on why the WWE cancelled their 2023 WWE Day 1 Event, but updates will be provided once it has been made available, though it is speculated that the show was cancelled so that the WWE wouldn’t have to compete with the NFL’s final Sunday Night Football game of the year, which is one of the most highly-anticipated matchups in history between the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers.
