In what will be a mixed reaction to end the Hell in a Cell main event, Brock Lesnar made a shocking return to WWE to lay out Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns.
Lesnar was rumored to be backstage before the pay-per-view began but his return was still unexpected. For all anyone knew, he was done with WWE for the foreseeable future and ready to make a return to UFC. In fact, rumors were that his WWE contract was complete. To see Lesnar not only interject himself in the last match of the night so quickly after losing the Universal Title, and attacking both Strowman and Reigns, the scene will leave fans asking questions.
The match itself was like a car crash. Already a high-intensity bout, The Shield, Drew McIntyre, and Dolph Ziggler had made their way to the ring and gotten involved. All four talents found themselves fighting on top of the cell with Ziggler and Rollins going through tables after falling from the midway level of the cage. With bodies laid out, Lesnar's music hit to a loud ovation.
He made his way to the ring with Paul Heyman, kicked the cell door off its hinges and took it to two already exhausted competitors. A few F5's, and a series of smashing the already broken table Strowman had been put through earlier over Reigns and Strowman's back, and Lesnar was right back in the mix.
Reactions to Lesnar's return varied. Fans loved the fact Lesnar returned but that the match ended in a no contest finish with both competitors unable to continue, fans quickly turned to take the show off the air with a chorus of boos. What will come next is uncertain. Is Lesnar going to be part of the feud between the two top guys, moving towards a match at the Super Show? Or, is Lesnar re-signed to WWE?
Despite the finish, Monday's Raw will be one to see and hopefully provide some answers.
