Renee Paquette gave her reaction to the main event of the inaugural WWE Day 1 pay-per-view during the latest installment of her “Throwing Down with Renee and Miesha” podcast.
During the show, the former WWE broadcast team member sounded off on Big E. losing the WWE Championship in the WWE Day 1 main event, as well as Brock Lesnar being a late addition to the bout and going on to win the match to become the new WWE Champion.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the show where she touches on these topics with her thoughts.
On why she didn’t like Big E being pinned in the WWE title match at Day 1: “I just wish, given the stipulation of it being a fatal five-way, the fact that Big E did not have to be pinned or submitted in order to lose the title. I just don’t know why he had to be the one to take the pin. You know, I feel like it could’ve gone to, you know, somebody else in the fight. Maybe Kevin Owens? Sorry, Kevin. It definitely opens the door to see like, what’s next? Are we going to get to see more of Big E and Brock? It does seem like we’re going to see some Bobby Lashley and Brock, which I cannot wait to see. I think Bobby Lashley is so cool, he’s just an insane athlete and I can’t wait to see what those two do.”
On Brock Lesnar winning the title: “Brock doesn’t need one. The thing is, is that Brock doesn’t need it. Brock is not the kind of athlete or wrestler to need a title. He doesn’t need a title. He doesn’t need a title to be a draw, Brock is Brock. He’s an attraction no matter what. But, this like, this sort of version of Brock where he’s like, babyface Brock Lesnar with his ponytail and his overalls and his plaid shirts. There’s just something about it that I think, I don’t know, it’s like this character evolution of Brock Lesnar that I think so many people are drawn to right now.”
