Below, talkSPORT gives you Monday’s gossip and rumours from the wrestling world.
Brock Lesnar to make regular appearances on SmackDown
Lesnar will face Kofi Kingston for the WWE Championship during SmackDown’s debut episode on FOX on October 4.
The Beast has been a part-time performer for WWE since returning in 2012.
However, it seems like FOX and WWE chiefs have tied him down to more dates.
Lesnar is set to make further SmackDown appearances on October 11, October 25 and November 15.
The 42-year-old has been heavily tipped to end Kingston’s WWE Championship reign.
Reason behind surprise Universal Championship match
Rey Mysterio, Ricochet, AJ Styles, Robert Roode and Shinsuke Nakamura are set to compete in a Fatal 5-Way match on Raw tonight.
And the winner will earn a Universal Championship shot against Seth Rollins next week, in a show which is being billed as the ‘season premiere’ of Raw.
Rollins is likely to come out victorious as he has to defend his title against ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt at next month’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view.
The Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer claims that with NXT debuting on USA and SmackDown set to move to FOX, they do not want to shift too much focus away from Raw.
Finn Balor return update
Balor has not been seen in a WWE ring since SummerSlam when he was destroyed by The Fiend.
The former Universal champion has been taking time off, which included marrying Vero Rodriguez last month.
However, according to PW Insider, Balor is scheduled to take on Nakamura for the Intercontinental Championship during WWE’s tour of Australia in October.
Kane ‘creeped out’ by ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt
On last week’s episode of Raw, WWE legend Kane was attacked by The Fiend.
It made Wyatt look even stronger ahead of his Universal Championship match with Rollins.
Kane told the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast: “To be involved with the Seth Rollins and Bray Wyatt/Fiend storyline, what an honour to be able to do that. It was a great night.
“Even I get creeped out by Bray Wyatt as The Fiend. I think that is a tremendous character and I’m also really happy when any of the guys are able to be successful.
“I think Bray is very creative and everything he has done as Bray Wyatt and now The Fiend character.
“It has all been great and he is such a wonderful performer.”
