WWE SmackDown on Fox for the second week kicked off with a huge bang as the WWE draft was announced. But it was a new-look Bayley who stole the show at the end of it all! Bayley, who lost to Charlotte Flair at WWE Hell in a Cell, had a rematch for the SmackDown women's title.

Bayley appeared in a brand new avatar with short hair. She immediately took down the Bayley Buddies at the entrance with an axe. Despite two Bayley-to-Belly's, Charlotte kicked out. However, after Charlotte went to pin Bayley following the Natural Selection, Bayley countered with an inside cradle to pin Charlotte and regain the SD women's title once again.

Earlier, WWE SmackDown kicked off with Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns facing off against each other. However, it was interrupted by 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt once again as he attacked Rollins. Thus Raw got the first draft pick as Rollins won by disqualification.

WWE champion Brock Lesnar once again had to face his fears as he encountered Cain Velasquez on SmackDown. Cain made his debut on last week's SmackDown and launched an assault on Lesnar, who left the ring. Just before that Brock Lesnar beat Kofi Kingston to become a 5-time WWE champion. Lesnar lost his UFC title to Cain Velasquez back in 2010
