Originally published at

On Friday Night SmackDown, it was announced that Brock Lesnar’s indefinite suspension is over and will appear on next week’s episode.

Throughout the show, Kayla Braxton was attempting to “confirm” the status of Lesnar’s storyline suspension and announced at the close of the show that the suspension is over and Lesnar will appear on next week’s show in San Antonio, Texas.

There was no time for @SamiZayn to celebrate because @BrockLesnar returns NEXT FRIDAY on #SmackDown.

It will be Lesnar’s first appearance on WWE programming since the October 22nd edition where he attacked Adam Pearce and led to his departure.

SmackDown also featured a “Black Friday Battle Royal” to determine the next challenger for Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

The match appeared to be won by Jeff Hardy but Sami Zayn was hiding on the floor and snuck up on Hardy to make the final elimination and will ensure Zayn a future title shot.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen an indefinite suspension last a month.
