WWE SmackDown video highlights: Brock Lesnar appears


Though SmackDown followed up on Clash of Champions and started building to Hell in a Cell last night, the most noteworthy thing on the episode was an announcement regarding the show's upcoming move to FOX.

Brock Lesnar will challenge for Kofi Kingston's WWE Championship on SmackDown's FOX debut. It's taking place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Friday, October 4, and the theme of the episode is SmackDown's 20th anniversary celebration.

Lesnar and Paul Heyman made a surprise appearance on last night's SmackDown after The New Day (Kingston, Big E & Xavier Woods) defeated Randy Orton & The Revival in a six-man tag match. After Kingston accepted Lesnar's challenge, Lesnar laid him out with the F5.

This will be Lesnar's first match on weekly WWE television since 2004.
