Brock Lesnar is not done with WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
WWE posted a quote from Lesnar with the promise for revenge on Reigns for the way he retained his Universal Title at Crown Jewel on Thursday. Lesnar said, “The moment I arrive at SmackDown, I will beat Roman Reigns senseless.”
Reigns retained the Universal Championship thanks to a ref bump and interference from Jimmy and Jey Uso. Fans were left wondering what Paul Heyman’s intentions were when he slid the Universal Title in the ring in between Lesnar and Reigns to use as a weapon.
Lesnar was able to grab the belt but the distraction while the ref was out is what allowed for The Usos to help take out Lesnar for Reigns to retain the title so Heyman has plausible deniablility.
Friday’s episode of SmackDown is scheduled to take place at the Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas. As WrestlingNews.co previously noted, Lesnar is scheduled to wrestle at the Royal Rumble.
