Paul Heyman would say that he and Brock Lesnar demanded a match putting Brock Lesnar against Rey Mysterio but Vince McMahon would not allow it due to the brand split. It was at that moment that Brock Lesnar, through Paul Heyman, announced he was quitting the brand and would be showing up on Monday Night Raw to hunt the Lucha legend.

It is also worth noting that this appears to be the first step toward the official swapping of brands for the WWE Heavyweight and Universal Championships. Bray Wyatt, a SmackDown Superstar won the Universal Championship at Crown Jewel defeating Seth Rollins in a Falls Count Anywhere match.
