Brock Lesnar returns to WWE TV this Monday night on Raw and there are no hints on who might be his next opponent.
Seth Rollins is a heel now and he’s busy with Samoa Joe so those two names can be canceled out. It seems as if Aleister Black is still busy with Buddy Murphy and Randy Orton is in a feud with AJ Styles.
The only other name on the active Raw roster that seems like a possibility is Drew McIntyre but he’s a heel so, unless they plan on turning him face, it doesn’t seem like he’s next in line to face Lesnar.
Based on some recent tweets, it looks like Dio Maddin will be stepping in the ring relatively soon. Maddin has been off WWE TV since November when Lesnar attacked him. This was also done to write him off as a commentator since Maddin wants to continue with his wrestling career and Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn were said to not be fans of his work on commentary. Maddin has been training at the Performance Center since he’s been off TV.
Typically, tweets like the ones posted below are storyline driven and oftentimes lead to something so we could see the start of the Maddin-Lesnar feud soon – perhaps as soon as this Monday night on Raw. Lesnar is scheduled to be at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view so it would make sense to kickstart his next feud this Monday.
For what it’s worth, Maddin is one of Paul Heyman’s guys so he will likely be positioned in a good spot on the roster when he finally makes his main roster in-ring debut.
