During this week’s episode of Smackdown Live, Brock Lesnar returned to the blue brand for the first time in years to confront WWE Champion, Kofi Kingston.
This led to a challenge by Lesnar to Kingston for the WWE Championship on the debut on FOX, October 4th. Kingston accepted the challenge and was then met with a F-5 to close the segment.
Ryan’s Thought: Huge news that was seen coming from a mile away. When was the last time we saw Brock wrestle on television? 2003? Regardless, we’ve talked about this for some time and having Brock as WWE Champion going into FOX makes perfect sense, just not a popular choice.
