Brock Lesnar Quits SmackDown, Vows To Invade RAW Next Week
Brock Lesnar kicked off the start of tonights WWE Friday Night SmackDown, and he did so with a bang. After he and Paul Heyman recounted Lesnar’s win over Cain Velasquez at WWE Crown Jewel, Heyman made a bombshell announcement, saying Lesnar has quit SmackDown in order to get a match against Rey Mysterio.
Heyman said that at first, he went to Vince McMahon and demanded that Lesnar be given a match, especially after Mysterio attacked Lesnar at Crown Jewel. Because of contractual obligations, however, Heyman said he was denied, leading to Lesnar quitting SmackDown and promising to invade Monday Night RAW next week in order to find Mysterio.
