The Tribal Chief thwarted an RKO attempt and then speared Riddle for the pinfall in the final moments of the Undisputed WWE Universal Title match between Riddle and Roman Reigns.
Brock Lesnar’s music began to play as Reigns celebrated and claimed that he had wrecked everyone and that it was time for him to leave. He made his way down to the ring and, at first, appeared to offer his hand in respect to Reigns.
But then Brock grabbed Roman and gave him an F-5, which was accompanied by a couple of F-5s for The Usos as the event came to a close. A new report explains how another Brock vs. Roman plotline came to be.
It wasn’t in the initial plans for the next major Premium Live Event, SummerSlam, this time. The original plan for the main event before Brock was booked was for Randy Orton to return and confront Roman at SummerSlam.
Backstage, news of Brock’s return to SmackDown began to circulate around 5 p.m. ET, but he was not included on the internal rundowns distributed just before the show.
