Another busy night for WWE with Friday Night SmackDown taking place for the first time since Survivor Series.
Moments after Sami Zayn cheated Jeff Hardy out of the Black Friday Invitational Battle Royal to earn the right to challenge Universal Champion Roman Reigns, Kayla Braxton revealed that Brock Lesnar's indefinite suspension had been lifted and he was returning to Friday Night SmackDown next week.
Earlier in the night, when Braxton asked WWE official Adam Pearce regarding the rumors of Lesnar returning, the latter replied that he'd be 'shocked' if the former Universal Champion's suspension were to be lifted anytime soon.
Interestingly, Lesnar was fined $ 1 million and suspended because he hit Pearce with the F-5
on the October 29, 2021 episode of SmackDown.Will Brock Lesnar confront Sami Zayn next week?
On SmackDown next week, Brock Lesnar might have something to say after seeing Sami Zayn as the No. 1 contender to Roman Reigns' Universal Championship.
He might confront Zayn and could challenge him to put his No. 1 Contendership on the line. During Lesnar's last match at WWE Crown Jewel, Roman Reigns stole the victory with the help of The Usos.
Even Reigns took a few shots at Lesnar during his opening promo on tonight's SmackDown, which is probably why he wasn't so thrilled to learn Lesnar is returning so soon. Lesnar was pretty angry the last time he was on SmackDown, which came after losing to Reigns at Crown Jewel, though Reigns had help from not only Heyman but also The Usos in that win. Heyman tossed the Universal Championship between them in the ring, and it is unclear who he was trying to get it to.
