It looks like Brock Lesnar will be in the house for an upcoming episode of WWE SmackDown in Los Angeles, California.

SmackDown is set to take place at the Staples Center on Friday 10 December. Thursday evening saw the venue state that Lesnar, who is currently suspended from WWE in storyline, has "vowed to buy a ringside seat" for the show:-

This represents a continuation of the storyline that started at SummerSlam 2021 back in August. Lesnar confronted Universal Champion Roman Reigns that night, having returned for the first time in over a year, leading, effectively, to their title fight at Crown Jewel 2021 (21 October). When Reigns retained by nefarious means, Brock went on a rampage on the following night's SmackDown, battering everyone in front of him - including authority figure Adam Pearce.

Pearce slapped Lesnar with an indefinite suspension, saying he was a danger to the SmackDown roster. The following week brought the announcement that WWE had hit Brock with a kayfabe fine of $1 million too.

Current plans may call for WWE to extend the Lesnar vs. Reigns program into 2022. Last month, it was reported that it could stretch all the way to WrestleMania 38.
