Former WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar was in a fighting mood when he came to the season premiere of WWE Raw from Phoenix, Arizona at the Talking Stick Resort Arena.
In the opening segment, Rey Mysterio was doing an opening promo when Lesnar came down to the ring where he attacked both Mysterio and his son, Dominick.
As a result of this angle, which led to Dominick being stretchered out of the arena, Mysterio wasn’t medically cleared to compete on this show. Rusev would step up to replace Mysterio in the match.
Lesnar will challenge WWE Champion Kofi Kingston for the title this Friday night on the premiere episode of SmackDown on FOX.
