The opening of tonight’s SmackDown saw Brock Lesnar announce that he is leaving the blue brand in favor of Monday Night Raw.
His reason? Revenge.
Paul Heyman announced that Vince McMahon would not sanction the match between Lesnar and Mysterio due to the brand split so Heyman, in turn, announced that Lesnar would be leaving the brand And coming to Raw on Monday to hunt Rey Mysterio.
Outside of this rivalry, this also seems to solidify the swap of the Heavyweight Championships for both brands.
Bray Wyatt, who won the Universal Championship at Crown Jewel is staying on the SmackDown brand.
