Brock Lesnar will appear at WWE Immense SmackDown at Madison Sq. Garden in Unusual York City next Friday.
The knowledge was as soon as published after Paul Heyman, who works as special counsel to WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, instructed the guidelines to the Tribal Chief on this week’s edition of SmackDown.
Lesnar returned to WWE after a one year-and-a-half of hiatus, confronting Reigns at SummerSlam on Aug. 21 following the champion’s title protection against John Cena. The two engaged in a staredown as the show went off the air.

Reigns has held the Universal Championship belt for over a one year after beating “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman in a Triple Threat match at Payback in August 2020.
Lesnar hasn’t been in the ring since losing the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36 in April 2020. He’s a five-time WWE Champion and three-time WWE Universal Champion.
Reigns and Lesnar trust a past pork: The two fought each and each varied thrice in 2018, with Lesnar defending his Universal title twice before losing the belt to Reigns at SummerSlam that one year.
Now Lesnar clearly wishes that title serve.
Immense SmackDown is attach to launch on Fox at 8 p.m. ET on Friday.
