The hype for the SmackDown’s premiere on FOX increased as Brock Lensar made a surprising appearance on the last edition of SmackDown to challenge Kofi Kingston. While Kingston’s reign seeming solid at the moment after the New Day’s member won it at WrestleMania 35, former WWE stare Bully Ray feels that The Beast Incarnate should win the title on the landmark episode.
On the recent edition of Busted Open Radio, Ray explained that by handing the title to Lesnar, the company would be gaining a lot of views with Lesnar as champion. He said:
“Brock’s name is known by people who might not be wrestling fans. Brock should bring a lot of eyes to this show on Friday. He’s the biggest name and that’s why they’re going with him. Brock as your champion is what’s best for business right now with your show going to FOX.”
Last night, @BrockLesnar returned to #SDLive to challenge @TrueKofi for the #WWEChampionship on the Oct. 4th #FridayNightSmackDown debut on @FOXTV @davidlagreca1 & @bullyray5150 on why Brock makes the most sense as champion right now for FOX pic.twitter.com/7vKgXvW5X7
