The return of WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar to WWE’s flagship show, Monday Night Raw, has been revealed.
“The Beast” is being advertised to make his television return on the January 21st episode in Oklahoma City, OK at the Chesapeake Arena, which will serve as the go-home edition of the red brand for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event.
As of this writing, there’s no word yet on if he’ll be appearing on any episodes of Raw before this show in order to promote his next match. It should be noted that WWE has already confirmed that Paul Heyman is slated to appear on this Monday’s episode of Raw, which will serve as the Christmas Eve edition of the show in order to hype Lesnar’s next title defense.
Lesnar is set to defend his title against Braun Strowman at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event on Sunday, January 27, 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona at Chase Field that will air on the WWE Network.
The Universal Champion was last seen on WWE programming when he beat WWE Champion Daniel Bryan in a non-title match last month at the Survivor Series pay-per-view.
OKC – we’re getting an early Christmas present! @BrockLesnar returns to Monday Night RAW in Oklahoma City on January 21!
