Brock Lesnar is slated to be at next week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw as the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA announced today that the newly crowned WWE Champion will be there.
The announcement read, “JUST ANNOUNCED! The New WWE Champion, “The Beast” Brock Lesnar will be live in Philly Next Monday for Monday Night RAW!”
This marks the second straight week that Lesnar will be on the show as he is now listed internally as part of the Raw roster although he is being portrayed as a free agent to continue his feud with Roman Reigns on SmackDown.
Lesnar was added to the five-way match at Day 1 when his scheduled bout with the Universal Champion was nixed when Reigns tested positive for COVID-19. WWE still has plans for Lesnar vs. Reigns to happen, but the way WWE will get there has changed.
Lesnar will defend the WWE Championship Bobby Lashley at the Royal Rumble later this month.
