With a short time left until WWE Day 1, a huge change has been made to the event.

Roman Reigns was set to defend his WWE Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar, however, that match is off, as Reigns has contracted COVID-19.

With this, Lesnar has been added to the Fatal-4-Way match tonight for the WWE Championship between Big E, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens and Bobby Lashley and it will be a Fatal-5-Way match now.

Hopefully for Reigns, who has had bouts with leukemia in the past, his bout with COVID-19 is an easy one and he is able to get over it quickly and return to Smackdown, where he’s had an almost two year dominant reign as the show’s champion.
