Brock Lesnar (c) vs Rey Mysterio – No Holds Barred, WWE Championship Match

He came out to open the show and cut a promo. Brock Lesnar came out and attacked Rey Mysterio inadvertently. Lesnar did not stop there.

At SmackDown after Crown Jewel, Lesnar’s advocate Paul Heyman announced that Brock Lesnar wanted a grudge match against Rey Mysterio, but his request is denied by WWE Chairman Vince McMahon since Mysterio and Lesnar are on different brands.
