One of the most prominent Superstars of the entire McMahon company, WWE, is undoubtedly its WWE Champion, Brock Lesnar. After more than a year of absence, with The Beast Incarnate having lost its tracks, after Wrestlemania 36, from which he had come out defeated against Drew McIntyre, at the time become the new WWE Champion, Lesnar preferred not to renew the his contract with the McMahons, leaving the company in the midst of the global covid-19 pandemic.
All this then ended with Lesnar's return to Summerslam, with the Beast of the federation going immediately to challenge the Tribal Chief of Friday Night Smackdown, Roman Reigns, after the latter's victory against John Cena, in a match valid for the Universal Championship.
After several face-to-face and a match at Crown Jewel, there should have been another title match for the Universal Championship on Day One, but due to the inability of Reigns to show up, due to positivity to the covid, WWE thought well.

Were NXT layoffs personal hits towards Triple H?
In the night, as we reported in one of the first news of the day on our newsboard, WWE wanted to go and fire numerous NXT workers, professionals and wrestlers, putting an end to numerous contracts that had been going on for years, such as that of Road Dogg, William Regal and several other leading NXT executives and road agents.
After the hundreds of releases that took place between 2020 and 2021, 2022 also opens in the name of budget cuts for the WWE, with the most close-knit part of the staff in recent years with Triple H of the third roster of the federation that it was completely eliminated overnight, giving space to new personalities and new ideas at NXT.
While the radical change that took place in the backstage of the WWE color show has not gone down for many, many others have not yet understood the reason that is pushing WWE to so drastically modify its rosters and its backstage gararchies, with some web wrestling insiders who seem to want to meet us.
In one of the latest news reported on the well-known overseas site, Ringside News, we are in fact confirmed that some sources within the Stamford company have confirmed that all the releases of this night were a move to attack the WWE COO, with the upper floors who wanted to send a loud and clear message to Hunter.
According to some internal sources who obviously want to remain anonymous, the thing "seems to be personal to Triple H because in reality it is" And again "it sounds like a conspiracy theory, but they were all Triple H men, specifically Triple H trusted people and it was all intentional" From Road Dogg to William Regal, to the segment where Bron Breakker destroyed the old black and gold NXT logo, it all seemed to go against the WWE Triple, in a situation similar to the throne destroyed by Cody Rhodes with the Sledgehammer, but all magnified and even more direct.
The last trusty Triple H athletes and insiders left at NXT are now Shawn Michaels and Samoa Joe alone, with the two remaining steadfast at their stations for the time being following yesterday's releases.
