• Roman Reigns is the Undisputed WWE and Universal Champion
  • Reigns retained the unified titles by beating Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam
  • Lesnar and Reigns were supposed to feature in WWE Day 1 earlier this year

Former WWE Champion Brock Lesnar will continue to be a key part of the WWE Company and has been advertised in a premium live event promotion.

Lesnar will compete in WWE Day 1, a live event that is held for wrestlers from the promotion's RAW and SmackDown brand divisions. Since New Year's Day falls on a Sunday in 2023, the event will return, and it will once again originate from the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, according to the venue's official website.

The tickets for the WWE Day 1 event are currently listed as "on-sale soon," and as of writing, the graphic used to promote the event is one that features Lesnar.

Last year, the WWE Day 1 event was supposed to be headlined by Lesnar and Roman Reigns' match for the WWE Universal Championship, Fightful reported.

However, after Reigns caught COVID-19, Lesnar was moved to the WWE Championship match in RAW since he was a free agent. The storyline eventually resulted in the unification of the WWE and Universal Championships after Reigns defeated Lesnar at WrestleMania 38 in April.

The WWE Day 1 in 2023 will be just the second edition of the WWE event. As of now, the advertisement doesn't feature any other superstar.

Lesnar and Reigns' rivalry came to an end Sunday with their big fight at SummerSlam. While Reigns defeated the Beast Incarnate and retained his Undisputed WWE and Universal Championships, the latter put up quite a show at Nissan Stadium, including destroying the ring with a tractor.
