Last night, Brock Lesnar made an impactful return to SmackDown Live.
‘The Beast Incarnate’ appeared following a matchup between The New Day and The Revival and Randy Orton. This match kicked off last night’s episode. Lesnar’s advocate, Paul Heyman, informed WWE Champion Kofi Kingston of his challenge for the belt. They will compete for the championship on the FOX debut of SmackDown Live.
The segment ended after Brock Lesnar laid out Kofi Kingston with an F5 after feigning a handshake.
Since the challenge was set, Kofi Kingston has tweeted about his most dangerous opponent to date, writing:
“Another day, another mountain. Let’s climb…”
It was rumored that WWE would move Lesnar to SmackDown to set up this match for SmackDown’s FOX debut. His inclusion creates a stronger roster for the blue brand, as it is speculated SmackDown will become WWE‘s new A-show because FOX is available in more home nationwide than USA Network.
The premiere episode of WWE SmackDown Live on FOX, which coincides with SmackDown’s 20th Anniversary, takes place on October 4th from the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California.
