With his indefinite suspension lifted, Brock Lesnar made his return to SmackDown last night.

It was announced that Lesnar will challenge for Roman Reigns' Universal Championship at WWE's Day 1 pay-per-view. Sami Zayn, who won a number one contender's battle royal last week, originally planned on getting his title shot at the PPV. But Lesnar convinced Zayn to instead challenge for the title last night.

Zayn wanted Lesnar to help him win the Universal Championship. Zayn said he'd be an easier opponent for Lesnar, bringing up that Lesnar's recent track record against Reigns isn't good. Lesnar then demolished Zayn and stood him up in the corner so the Universal Championship match could get started.

After Lesnar left, Reigns made his way out, quickly hit a spear, and used a guillotine to submit Zayn.
