I yearn to perform tonight at #WWEDay1 to defend my Universal Championship. However, unfortunately, earlier today I tested positive for COVID-19. Due to the proper protocols I am unable to compete as originally scheduled. I look forward to returning to action as soon as possible.

Plans got changed at the very last moment & Lesnar (who is a free agent) got instilled in the fatal 4-way WWE Championship bout to make it a fatal 5-way affair. Now, in the WWE Day 1 fallout edition of Monday Night Raw, we might see Brock Lesnar making his presence, and possibly Big E could demand a rematch for the title he held before. Or, someone else could step up to challenge the Beast for the most coveted title in the company.
