Kofi Kingston’s WWE title reign came to a screeching halt last night on the premiere episode of Smackdown on FOX as Brock Lesnar regained the WWE title in mere seconds.
The match, which had its own sponsor, started with Kofi flying onto Lesnar as soon as the bell rang but Lesnar caught him in the F-5 position and hit his finishing move for the pin. Half the match was actually the three-count.
Kofi won the WWE title at WrestleMania 35, lasting a total of 180 days as champion. This is Brock’s fifth reign with the WWE title.
Brock’s celebration did not last long though as one individual by the name of Cain Velasquez came out to confront the new champion!
