Brock Lesnar made a surprise return to WWE SmackDown Live

SmackDown Live started with a fun 6-man tag team match that pitted The Revival and Randy Orton against The New Day in a match the latter comprehensively won. And then the music hit, and our jaws hit the floor collectively.

Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman would make their way up the ramp and issue a challenge to WWE Champion Kofi Kingston. Kingston would obviously accept and the match has been made official for the debut episode of SmackDown on FOX in October.

So why is Brock Lesnar Kofi Kingston's next opponent? There are a lot of simple and not-so-simple explanations for the same.

#5 The possibility of a title change on the first night

What WWE potentially needs on the first night of SmackDown on FOX is a major headline. For there to be a new face of the brand, a new man at the helm would truly kickstart a new era and establish the fact that SmackDown is not the B-brand.

SmackDown on FOX is a new property and because of the time, money, and effort that has been invested by WWE into making the show a success; they will want to put their best foot forward on the very first night.

It's a pilot in a sense, and we all know how important pilots are to the long-term sustenance of a television show. We all remember the setting of the inaugural episode of The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones, where the plot was set for the rest of the series to follow suit. Such will be the case for SmackDown on FOX as well, and the new WWE Champion could be the big draw that pulls new viewers in.
