Brock Lesnar wasn’t even supposed to be in this match.

And yet, because Roman Reigns caught COVID-19 and was forced out of WWE Day 1, Lesnar was inserted into the Fatal-4-Way match and it became a Fatal-5-Way match.

And it was a hell of a main event that saw a ton of great action, and a shock of a finish, as Lesnar became the WWE Champion again.

What happens now is a mystery, as Lesnar was in a feud on Smackdown with Reigns, but he is on the shelf while he recovers from COVID-19.

So does Lesnar wrestle primarily on Raw? Does he defend the WWE Championship on both shows? It makes for some intriguing storylines that WWE can use.

But the Beast Incarnite is back on top. Brock Lesnar is WWE Champion again.
