Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Brock Lesnar quit the WWE. “The Beast Incarnate” has a penchant for leaving the organization for other ventures, be that fighting in the UFC, or to retreat to the Canadian Wilderness to hunt and be a mountain man. Judging by the size of him, the dude probably eats a whole elk after he shoots it in one sitting.
But wrestling fans needn’t worry, Brock didn’t quit the WWE entirely.
Brock Lesnar just quit SmackDown.
Wait, so what does that mean? The WWE for a long time now has separated its stars into two main brands: RAW and SmackDown. The former program airs on Monday nights while the latter comes on Friday nights on FOX.
Each brand has its own set of champions and superstars that are assigned to them — think of them as different divisions or conferences in sports.
Brock Lesnar was a men’s title holder on SmackDown, which was a problem.
