• Original Plan For Brock Lesnar Quitting SmackDown Revealed
As seen on this week’s episode of SmackDown, WWE Champion Brock Lesnar quit SmackDown and he’s now heading to the RAW brand (thus making the WWE Title exclusive to RAW, and The Fiend’s Universal Title will now be exclusive to SmackDown).
According to the Wrestling Observer, Brock was originally scheduled to quit SmackDown during his appearance on WWE Backstage on FS1.
WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman appearing on the official premiere of WWE Backstage on FS1 was actually the big announcement that Renee Young (host of WWE Backstage) was teasing, but WWE ended up using Brock on SmackDown because other top talent couldn’t make it to the show.
Brock is now scheduled to appear on this week’s episode of RAW and will confront Rey Mysterio.
