Lesnar is WWE Champion once again.
Several hours before the Day 1 pay-per-view got underway, WWE made the announcement that Brock Lesnar was being added to the WWE Title match after Roman Reigns tested positive for COVID-19. Lesnar was supposed to challenge Reigns for the Universal Title at Day 1.
The five-way consisted of Lesnar, Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley, Kevin Owens and WWE Champion Big E and at the conclusion of the Day 1 event, Lesnar was holding the WWE Championship as he pinned Big E to become champion.

Brock is now a 6-time WWE Champion. The last time he won the title was in October of 2019 when he defeated Kofi Kingston on SmackDown.
