WWE Day 1 Preview

WWE Day 1 Preview

It’s day one of 2022, and also day one on the road to WrestleMania.

Tonight, World Wrestling Entertainment comes to State Farm Arena in Atlanta, GA to ring in the New Year with the huge WWE Day 1 pay-per-view.

Here’s the announced card for tonight’s big event, but with a recent COVID outbreak keep in mind that “card subject to change.”

WWE Day 1 Lineup

  • – Roman Reigns defends the Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar.
  • – Big E defends the WWE Championship against Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens and Bobby Lashley in a Fatal 4-Way Match.
  • – Liv Morgan challenges Becky Lynch for the RAW Women’s Championship.
  • – Edge battles The Miz.
  • – The Uso’s defend the Smackdown Tag Team Championship against The New Day.
  • – Drew McIntyre takes on Madcap Moss.
  • – The Street Profits challenge RK-Bro for the RAW Tag Team Championship.
  • – Sheamus and Ridge Holland take on Ricochet and Cesaro on the Day 1 Kickoff Show.

WWE Day 1 airs tonight LIVE at 7pm CT on WWE Network and pay-per-view. The Kickoff Show, which you can watch live below, begins at 6pm CT.

Stinger’s View:

If the card goes as advertised, this is a really strong lineup and one that has, for the most part, had a decent build. The road to WrestleMania begins tonight, and I think WWE is looking for a strong showing to start the year.

A few predictions: I think they pull the trigger on Liv Morgan becoming the RAW Women’s Champion.

Big E’s reign has been uneventful, and while that’s not his fault, I think they’ll start the new year off with crowning a new WWE Champion. I’m going to go with Kevin Owens, with Big E going back into chase mode.

I don’t see Reigns dropping the Universal Championship until WrestleMania, although he could easily decide to step away for a while again due to his compromised immune system. Right now, I think Roman stays around as champion thanks to help from Paul Heyman who was never actually “fired” by Roman in the first place.
