Video: Brock Lesnar quits Smackdown
— WWE (@WWE) November 2, 2019
Via Marc Middleton’s SD recap:
We go right to the ring as WWE Champion Brock Lesnar makes his way out with Paul Heyman. Kayla Braxton does the ring introductions.
Heyman takes the mic and does his introduction. He goes on and says Lesnar is pissed off tonight. Heyman talks about last night’s win over the debuting Cain Velasquez at WWE Crown Jewel. Heyman shows us video from the short match that took place as the opener in Saudi Arabia on Thursday. We actually see the whole match, which lasted just over two minutes. Heyman calls it the most spiritually orgasmic moment of Lesnar’s career and says after that, here came everyone’s hero Rey Mysterio. Some fans boo Rey’s name. Heyman shows us the footage of Rey destroying Lesnar with steel chair shots after the match.
Heyman says we have a real problem going on around here. Heyman says he and Lesnar went to Vince McMahon and asked him to serve Rey up to Lesnar. Vince said he can’t do that because SmackDown Superstars are contractually exclusive to FOX, and RAW Superstars are exclusive to the USA Network. Heyman says if Rey can’t come to SmackDown, then Lesnar is going to RAW on Monday to find Rey and if anyone from WWE or a network has a problem with that, what are they going to do about it? Heyman goes on and announces that Lesnar officially quits SmackDown on FOX, and is showing up this Monday on RAW, to go hunting for Rey. Heyman speaks to Rey some in Spanish and drops the mic as they march to the back.
– The announcers talk about what just happened. The camera cuts backstage to Lesnar and Heyman exiting the building. We see Triple H and WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels is with him. Fans pop as they watch Lesnar and Heyman walk out.
