Paul Heyman Botches Brock Lesnar Raw Promo

Paul Heyman accidentally botched part of his promo reuniting with Brock Lesnar, stating that Brock won a fatal four way match for the WWE Title at Day 1, not a fatal five way.



Big E has been on the receiving end of a huge push as a singles star, ever since he was separated from the New Day during 2020’s edition of the WWE Draft. He also made a name for himself as part of the New Day stable as well. Big E lost the WWE Intercontinental Championship on Night Two of WrestleMania 37, as he lost to Apollo Crews in a Nigerian Drum Fight. He also was unable to win the title in a fatal four-way match on a previous episode of Friday Night Smackdown. Big E was also removed from Friday Night Smackdown. 

Big E would eventually become the WWE Champion after cashing in his Money In The Bank briefcase on Bobby Lashley during an episode of Monday Night RAW in September last year. Since then Big E was the champion. However, that changed after he defended his title against Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley and a newly-added Brock Lesnar in a Fatal Five-Way match at the WWE Day 1 pay-per-view. In the end, Brock Lesnar hit a devastating F5 on Big E for the win and thus became the new WWE Champion.
According to Fightful Select, WWE Superstars were told before the WWE Day 1 pay-per-view that the WWE Championship match would be changing. The belief was that Big E was going to retain his title at the pay-per-view until Roman Reigns’ positive COVID-19 test changed that.

”Talent was informed mid-afternoon yesterday that the WWE Championship match would be changing, but they hadn’t been told of the original plans for a winner before that. Those that we spoke to believe Big E was set to win at Day 1, but that’s hardly confirmed.”
