Backstage Update on WWE possibly debuting a new look at Day 1 – Reports

It’s almost a New Year, but it seems that WWE will be keeping things the same. New reports suggest that the company has declined all production upgrade options for its newest pay-per-view.

WWE will host its Day 1 pay-per-view tomorrow night, marking its first event of 2022. The night will feature Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship, an epic fatal four-way for the WWE Championship, and much more.

One thing that will be absent from the first of its kind event, will be anything, well… actually new.

According to a report from WrestleVotes, any attempts by those inside WWE to create a unique feel for the pay-per-view have seemingly fallen on deaf ears. This included changes to ring appearance, lighting, and camera angles; all of which were “declined.”

“In coordination w/ the Day 1 theme, multiple presentation ideas were discussed regarding the look & feel of tomorrow’s PPV. Everything from different rope colors, mat colors, camera angles etc and from what I’m told ALL were declined. Sheesh.” – WrestleVotes, Twitter
