Brock Lesnar Returns On WWE SmackDown, Attacks Roman Reigns

Brock Lesnar is back to take on Roman Reigns again

Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar just can't stop feuding. 

The Beast Incarnate had been away from WWE TV since his WrestleMania 38 loss to Roman Reigns but he returned on tonight's edition of Friday Night SmackDown following the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion's successful title defence against Riddle.

Following his main event win, Reigns proclaimed there was no one left to face him and he moved to head backstage, only for Lesnar's music to fill the arena in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Lesnar then marched to the ring and actually extended his hand to Reigns, but it proved to be a trick as he decked The Tribal Chief with an F5 moments later.

The Usos then tried to save the Bloodline leader but they were also taken out with F5s, leaving Lesnar to stand tall as SmackDown went off the air. 

It was announced following SmackDown that Reigns and Lesnar will go one-on-one at SummerSlam in a Last Man Standing Match for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.

Lesnar has been locked in a feud with Reigns since The Beast Incarnate came out of retirement and returned at SummerSlam 2021. Reigns won what was their fifth singles match against each other at Crown Jewel in October of 2021 but the feud continued a few months later, with Reigns costing Lesnar the WWE Championship at Royal Rumble 2022. 

Lesnar would win the Men's Royal Rumble and then regain the WWE Title at Elimination Chamber which led to a Championship Unification Match in the main event of WrestleMania 38. As mentioned, that match was won by Reigns.
