Roman Reigns and the Common Championship. Lesnar went on a rampage after shedding to The Tribal Chief at Crown Jewel and was suspended for his actions. Now he is again and he is out for gold and revenge.
When followers talk about who precisely it will likely be that lastly dethrones Reigns, most go straight to Lesnar. Which may effectively occur, and it might even go down at Day 1. It nonetheless looks like that slot is being reserved for another person, even when WWE would not know who that somebody is but. With that in thoughts, Reigns will seemingly win this one.
Massive E vs. Seth Rollins vs. Kevin Owens vs. Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship
Massive E’s WWE Title reign is alive and effectively, but it surely faces its greatest risk at Day 1. Seth Rollins made the error of bragging about his primary contendership to Kevin Owens, at which level KO used his manipulative abilities to get himself a spot within the match. Owens satisfied Rollins he had a win and also you’re in match when he did not. Nonetheless, Rollins asking Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville about it made them notice it was a good suggestion. The match occurred, and KO gained. After that, Bobby Lashley argued he also needs to be within the match.

Massive E to retain on this one.
Becky Lynch vs. Liv Morgan for the Uncooked Ladies’s Championship
Liv Morgan is the most recent Famous person the WWE Universe is throwing its weight behind whereas the powers-that-be do their degree finest to disregard them. Morgan lastly obtained a shot on the Uncooked Ladies’s Title in December however misplaced the match after Becky Lynch used the ropes for leverage. Since The Man cheated to win, Morgan has been granted a rematch at Day 1.
Lynch has gone a really very long time with out shedding her title at this level. Even when she did technically lose the title after asserting she was pregnant Lynch did not technically lose it. She handed it to Asuka after which gained it again minutes after she returned. Day 1 would not really feel like a large enough stage for that run to finish, so Lynch to win this one.
Edge vs. The Miz
Edge is again. The Miz is again. It solely is smart that they might wrestle one another. Okay, perhaps not, however this match nonetheless has the potential to be higher than plenty of followers predict it to be. Since each Superstars have been round for thus lengthy, it is simple to overlook their paths have not actually crossed. Whereas it won’t be a match on many followers’ bucket lists for Edge, give it an opportunity.
Edge is not invincible, as has been proved a few occasions already in 2021. It would not appear seemingly that he’ll be shedding to The Miz at Day 1, although. Whereas it is not but clear what WWE has deliberate subsequent for The Rated R Superstars, odds are he can have a high-profile match at WrestleMania so will choose up a win right here to start that construct.
The Usos vs. The New Day for the SmackDown Tag Staff Championships
If doubtful, break glass and e-book The Usos versus The New Day for a set of Tag Staff Titles. These two groups have been battling for years, but their matches by no means get previous. WWE’s tag group division is usually in want of a shot to the arm, and showcasing these tandems in opposition to one another by no means fails to remind followers it is not all dangerous.
As for a winner, it would not actually matter. The match will virtually undoubtedly be so good that followers will not care who wins. Since we’re going with Reigns to beat Lesnar, we’ll choose New Day to win this one. The highway to WrestleMania begins quickly, and followers must consider Reigns may be crushed. Maybe his cousins shedding their titles would be the first cracks to indicate in The Bloodline’s foundations.
RKBro vs. The Road Income for the Uncooked Tag Staff Championships
2021 has been a yr filled with surprises in wrestling. Maybe essentially the most nice of these surprises has been the pairing of Randy Orton and Riddle, higher identified collectively as RKBro. The institution of them as a group was nice and the construct to them profitable the titles was near excellent.
Day 1 could effectively decide whether or not 2022 can be nearly as good to RKBro as 2021. The champs will defend their titles in opposition to The Road Income on the present. Whereas there’s undoubtedly cash in having them lose and finally cut up, that should not occur but. Income to win this one.
Drew McIntyre vs. Madcap Moss
When you had Drew McIntyre going through Madcap Moss within the first WWE PPV of 2022 in your wrestling bingo card, then effectively carried out you and accumulate your prize on the subsequent window. Most followers had the Scot being Reigns’ subsequent challenger however it will appear that is not on the playing cards, no less than not proper now. As an alternative, he’ll face off in opposition to Madcap Moss at Day 1.
That is proper, McIntyre is not even going through Baron Corbin. Simply his sidekick. As predictable outcomes go, they do not get far more easy than this. McIntyre to win this one, most likely after just a few seconds and a Claymore. Watch Moss win this because of some tomfoolery now I’ve written and revealed that.
Cesaro and Ricochet vs. Sheamus and Ridge Holland
A number of of 2021’s NXT call-ups have felt somewhat out of the blue. Ridge Holland very a lot falls into that class. A supposed friendship with Sheamus led him to the principle roster and at Day 1, the 2 will group up. Their opponents can be Cesaro and Ricochet and the match will happen on the kick-off present.
It could be good to see Ricochet and Cesaro win this one, however having Holland lose a match at this stage would not appear seemingly. Holland might lose the match for Sheamus leading to a conflict between the 2. Let’s hope for that.
