Bengaluru, December 2: Brock Lesnar, who makes occasional appearances for the WWE on its weekly shows, is set to attend the Monday Night Raw at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island, on December 18.
Lesnar does not wrestle on the weekly shows and only fights in the scheduled PPV matches. His last showdown was against AJ Styles in a dream match at Survivor Series PPV. This was a Champion vs Champion match in the dual brand event. Being the dominant fighter that he is, the beast incarnate picked up another emphatic win against the phenomenal one. It took him only an F-5 to pin the WWE Champion.
Going forward, he was expected to come back on WWE Raw in time for Royal Rumble. In general, he resurfaces to build up the co-branded PPV, which will be held in January. This time around, the same was expected as he is due to defend his title for a long time. But he's set to return sooner than expected as per the recent announcement.
The Dunkin Donuts Center has already started selling tickets promoting the beast’s appearance. However, the WWE is yet to confirm it. Paul Heyman, the advocate for Lesnar, will also appear on the show.
A report from cagesideseats.com suggests that Lesnar will not appear on the main show. Rather, he will feature in an off-air segment.
Yet, it's something for WWE fans to look forward to.
If this is the scenario for the next appearance of Brock Lesnar, then he will not be included in the next storyline for now. WWE creative is still looking for a suitable opponent to wrestle the reigning champion. If they can’t come up with one, Lesnar's appearance at Royal Rumble will be in jeopardy for sure.
