With thoughts of Brock Lesnar's disgusting attack on his
"friend" Kurt Angle still fresh on everybody's mind, Mr. McMahon
kicked off SmackDown! by introducing the fans to the real
Brock Lesnar. The former WWE Champion hit the ring, much to the
dismay of the fans in attendance.
Lesnar told the fans that Angle was in fact his friend. He
then proceeded to give his definition of friendship: "The
art of using somebody to your advantage so that they can help
you succeed in life. Once they can no longer help you, they are
no longer your friend."
Apparently, Lesnar thought that Angle could no longer help
him. Mr. McMahon then rewarded the real Brock Lesnar with
a match at SummerSlam with Kurt Angle for the WWE Championship.
While McMahon and Lesnar celebrated their new friendship in
the ring, Stephanie McMahon walked out from the backstage area.
The returning Stephanie accused her father of sending A-Train
out to get her at Vengeance, thus causing the SmackDown! General
Manager to miss much time. An irate Mr. McMahon then gave
Stephanie something to really be upset about -- he put her in a
match against A-Train later in the night.
The match between Stephanie and A-Train was obviously a
one-sided affair, with A-Train winning in the end. However,
there was some doubt that A-Train would win when Undertaker came
out and attacked him. Luckily for the Train, Big Show Pearl
Harbored 'Taker, allowing A-Train to concentrate on getting the
win against Stephanie.
