With the premiere of Friday Night Smackdown taking place on FOX earlier this evening, WWE pulled out several stops in order to make the show memorable for everyone who watched. This includes appearances by several superstars, including a debut from the world of UFC.
In the closing movements of the show, Cain Velasquez, a former UFC Heavyweight Champion, confirmed earlier rumors about his future and made his first apperance in WWE. He confronted Brock Lesnar, after The Beast defeated Kofi Kingston in less than 15 seconds to win back the WWE Championship.
After Lesnar’s victory, Rey Mysterio’s music suddenly blared through the arena. Mysterio, who was decimated alongside his son by Lesnar on Monday, hit the scene sporting a sling on his arm, but he didn’t come alone. Rey had considerable backup in the way of Lesnar’s former MMA rival Cain Velasquez. Cain absolutely unloaded on The Beast, dropping him with a double leg takedown and landing several stiff strikes. The ambush caused Lesnar to retreat, and the new WWE Champion looked as if he had just seen a ghost.
Lesnar has a lot to be proud of though:
I am very intrigued by this. It will be interesting to see where these two behemoths end up colliding.
