The WWE Title match at ‘Day 1’ is now a Fatal 4-Way.

The WWE Championship match for the ‘Day 1’ pay-per-view has undergone another change. Bobby Lashley secured his spot in the match that was originally supposed to be Big E defending against Seth Rollins. Kevin Owens secured his spot in the match and Lashley got three victories on Raw to earn his way into the title match.

It was made official that if Lashley could defeat Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins and Big E in singles matches, he would be added to the bout at Day 1. Lashley bested all three men and in the case of Big E, MVP assisted in that victory on top of Rollins and Owens getting involved.

LASHLEY DID IT!@fightbobby, against all odds, is going to #WWEDay1!
