After silencing Randy Orton and retaining his WWE Championship at the Clash Of Champions pay-per-view, Kofi Kingston faced an unexpected challenge on the following episode of SmackDown.
The New Day faced Randy Orton and The Revival to kick off SmackDown last week. After The New Day won, Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman showed up on the blue brand to challenge Kingston to a WWE Title match at SmackDown’s 20th Anniversary episode where the show will also be premiering on FOX.
As expected, the WWE Champion accepted the challenge after which The Beast Incarnate laid him out with an F5. The two are set to lock horns in a week from Friday on SmackDown.
In this article, let’s take a look at 4 reasons why Brock Lesnar will win the WWE Championship at SmackDown’s 20th Anniversary.
4. To Continue Being Unpredictable
Although their booking was going down hill post WrestleMania, WWE has made a good comeback by giving authority to Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff. Recently, we saw Seth Rollins defeating Brock Lesnar for the second time this year which was not seen coming by anyone.
It’s clear that WWE is trying to surprise the fans by pulling different tricks up their sleeve. Bringing back Brock Lesnar was not seen coming by anyone. In addition, what made it more special was that it happened all of a sudden just on a random episode of SmackDown, a brand where Lesnar had not appeared in years.
The WWE Universe got very excited to hear Lesnar’s music on SmackDown after more than 3 years. Paul Heyman challenging Kingston just made everyone in the crowd even more ecstatic.
Title changes on weekly shows are very rare. The WWE Championship changing hands on SmackDown’s 20th Anniversary will create a buzz of excitement among the fans and bring a whole new level of unpredictability to the blue brand.
