Roman Reigns is no stranger to Suplex City. Lesnar has used his signature move to embarrassingly devastating effect on the current Universal Champion countless times in their past meetings, and the Head of the Table is going to have his work cut out staying out of his opponent's clutches.

Lesnar may only just be returning, but he's shaping up as the biggest threat to Reigns' dominance that there's ever likely to be. Meanwhile, relations are more fraught than ever between Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch and Liv Morgan, who tried to exact revenge outside the squared circle before Christmas, still reeling about her brutal defeat last month.

Plus, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens and Bobby Lashley have WWE Champion Big E in their crosshairs in the Fatal Fourway, and The New Day take on The Usos. Read on for the full WWE Day 1 2022 card and all you need to know to watch a WWE Day 1 live stream online from anywhere.
