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.
”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.”
