At that point Brock Lesnar made his return to Smackdown and had some words for Paul Heyman, asking him why he didn’t tell Reigns that he was at SummerSlam. Reigns gave Heyman a look of disdain. Heyman was floundering, looking for words as Reigns took his Universal Championship from Heyman and walked out of the ring with The Usos.

Heyman then grabbed the mic and did his trademark introduction for Lesnar and he referred to him as the guy he advocated for 20 years.
Lesnar then told Heyman to get Reigns to accept his challenge to wrestle for the Universal Title. He gave Heyman a few seconds to answer, but Heyman didn’t answer. Lesnar went to put Heyman in the F5 but that’s when Reigns stormed back in the ring and hit Lesnar with a Superman Punch, knocking Lesnar and Heyman down. Then he went for another move but Lesnar caught him, though The Usos bailed him out and Lesnar took them to suplex city.
