Brock Lesnar will be at SmackDown at Madison Square Garden on September 10th.
The announcement was made on September 3rd as tension continues to build between The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns and his Special Counsel Paul Heyman.
Brock Lesnar returned to WWE at SummerSlam for the first time since WrestleMania 36, immediately coming for Roman Reigns. After Reigns had defeated John Cena in the main event, Lesnar marched to the ring to confront the champion. When Lesnar reached the ring he stared a hole through Reigns as a conflicted Paul Heyman looked on.
Interestingly, it is Paul Heyman who has famously served as Lesnar’s advocate for almost his entire career.
On the SmackDown after SummerSlam, The Usos questioned Heyman’s relationship with Lesnar, as the Special Counsel denied he knew The Beast would be at SummerSlam.

The following week with Heyman speaking in a backstage interview, his phone rang twice with Lesnar’s theme song playing. Heyman had a short and awkward conversation with The Beast before the segment ended.
Later in the show while speaking to Reigns, Heyman said the Bloodline had a problem. Brock Lesnar would be at SmackDown in Madison Square Garden. Reigns seemed unmoved by the news, saying that Heyman had a Lesnar problem, before questioning his Special Counsel over Lesnar.
Also at Madison Square Garden, Edge will meet Seth Rollins in a huge SummerSlam rematch. Rollins had been in action against Cesaro when he attacked the Swiss Superman with a chair. Edge ran to the ring to run off Rollins before challenging him to a match on the special edition of SmackDown.
The show will also feature the contract signing between Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair as they prepare to meet at Extreme Rules.
