Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Paul Heyman says history will be made when Brock Lesnar will return to regular television for the first time in 18 months.

“You can expect history to play out in front of your very eyes on SmackDown. It’s going to happen as Brock Lesnar returns to television for the first time in 18 months. He obviously wants to make an impact in doing so, and we’ll see whether that impact is at the expense of the ‘Tribal Chief,’ the most dominant champion in the history of WWE, Roman Reigns. That’s the history we’ll see play out on Friday.”
