Paul Heyman announced this week that Brock Lesnar will be on next week’s WWE Friday Night SmackDown at Madison Square Garden.
During a backstage segment, Heyman said that Lesnar called him for the first time in a year to break the news to him.
As noted earlier, this appears to be setting up Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns and it’s looking more like that match will happen in the near future at WWE Extreme Rules or at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.
Lesnar made his return at SummerSlam after Reigns defeated John Cena. The story is that fans are supposed to wonder if Heyman is going to be loyal to Reigns or his long-time friend that Lesnar that he has been an advocate of for many years.
Also set for next week’s SmackDown is the contract signing for the match between SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair that will take place at Extreme Rules.
