WWE SmackDown on Fox Results: Will Brock Lesnar Win the WWE Championship?

It's the first episode of SmackDown on Fox, and the WWE will bring plenty of familiar faces and possible title changes.

The biggest headline from the premiere episode of SmackDown on Fox is the WWE Championship between Kofi Kingston and Brock Lesnar. Lesnar arrived two weeks ago to challenge the New Day member, and Kofi, being the fighting champion that he is, accepted the match.

Many WWE fans feel the result is clear and Lesnar will become champion once again, but Kingston could feasibly shock the world and slay the beast.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson confirmed he will make an appearance on Friday Night SmackDown last week, giving the show an extra dose of star power. WWE also announced scheduled appearances from Kurt Angle, Lita, Mick Foley, Booker T, Hulk Hogan, Trish Stratus, Goldberg, Jerry Lawler, Mark Henry, Ric Flair and Sting.

The feud between Kevin Owens and Shane McMahon will soon come to an end, as the two will square off in a ladder match this Friday. McMahon and KO will put their careers on the line as they vie for the briefcase suspended above the ring. With Shane making KO's life a living hell, Owens is trying to save the WWE Universe from future McMahon angles and matches. Will KO prevail, or will SmackDown continue to be run by the boss' son?

Roman Reigns will square off against Erik Rowan ahead of their tag team match at Hell in a Cell on Sunday. Reigns and Rowan have butted heads for weeks, but the return of Luke Harper threw a wrench in Roman's plans to defeat the former tag team champion. Will Harper get involved again, and will the uneasy alliance between Roman and Daniel Bryan even the odds?

And finally we have a tag team match between the Four Horsewomen of the WWE. Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch will team up against Sasha Banks and Bayley. Lynch and Banks will square off at Hell in a Cell on Sunday, so prepare for lots of hostility between all four women.

Here's everything that happened on the October 4 episode of SmackDown Live.
