Both rivalries began on the Oct. 4 SmackDown on Fox premiere. On that night, Strowman and Fury, who was sitting ringside, squared up in a fun moment. Things took a turn for the worst when Strowman launched Dolph Ziggler into Fury, knocking the boxer back into his seat. On Monday's Raw, Strowman and Fury engaged in a brawl and had to be separated by security and other WWE superstars.

At the end of the SmackDown on Fox premiere, Velasquez showed up to confront the newly crowned WWE Champion, seeking revenge for what Lesnar did to Rey and Dominick Mysterio. Velasquez and Lesnar have a history that dates back to 2010 when Cain defeated Brock to capture the UFC Heavyweight Title.
