To open the 10/22 SmackDown, Brock Lesnar confronted and brawled with Roman Reigns and The Usos (Jimmy & Jey Uso) after being called out by Reigns. Lesnar tossed around producer Shawn Daivari and referee Chad Patton. Lesnar also took out several talents who were sent out to break up the brawl. After things calmed down, Adam Pearce announced that Lesnar is ‘indefinitely suspended’ which led to Brock coming back to the ring and giving Pearce an F5.
