Cain Velasquez appeared on the show to fight Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar is back on top of WWE as a champion. 

“The Beast” dethroned Kofi Kingston as WWE Champion when he beat him on Friday’s episode of SmackDown on FOX. This show marked the first episode on FOX and the 20 Anniversary Show.

Lesnar did so in seconds as Kofi ran at Lesnar and Lesnar immediately hit an F5 for the win. Things got interesting after the match when Rey Mysterio walked out with Cain Velasquez to the ring.

It’s been reported that WWE was in talks with Velasquez but things hit a snag as Velasquez was also interested in signing with NJPW, AEW, and AAA full-time. 

It appears that this angle has solidified his status with WWE. Velasquez’s appearance comes as part of the storyline that WWE started this past Monday night on RAW where Lesnar attacked Mysterio and his son. 

We’ll have more on Velasquez’s appearance shortly. 

This match between Kingston and Lesnar was set up back on the September 17 episode of SmackDown Live when Lesnar walked down to the ring where he had a staredown with Kingston.

Paul Heyman cut a promo about how Lesnar stands in the way of the longevity of Kingston’s WWE Title reign.
