Brock Lesnar made a surprise return to SmackDown last night, appearing on WWE television for the first time since losing to Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 38.
Lesnar picked up right where he left off, continuing his feud with Reigns. He confronted Reigns after Reigns retained the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Riddle.
Reigns got on the microphone after defeating Riddle and claimed that there was no one left for him to face. Reigns said he told us over two years ago that he's here to wreck everyone and then leave. After telling the crowd to acknowledge him, Reigns went to leave until Lesnar's music hit.
Lesnar went face-to-face with Reigns, then laid out Reigns and The Usos with F5s.
WWE has announced that Reigns will defend his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Lesnar in a Last Man Standing match at SummerSlam on Saturday, July 30.
