After returning on SmackDown last night, Brock Lesnar is being advertised for another WWE appearance this month.

The Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona announced today that Lesnar will appear on the Monday, September 30 episode of Raw at the venue. It's being advertised as the "season premiere" of the show, with that being the first week of WWE's new TV schedule. SmackDown's FOX debut is taking place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Friday, October 4.

As was announced last night, Lesnar will challenge for Kofi Kingston's WWE Championship on the SmackDown on FOX premiere. The episode is also SmackDown's 20th anniversary celebration.

The September 30 Raw in Phoenix and SmackDown's FOX premiere are the go-home shows for Hell in a Cell.

Kingston vs. Lesnar will be the first time Lesnar has wrestled on weekly WWE television since 2004. The match comes in advance of the WWE Draft taking place on SmackDown on Friday, October 11 and on Raw on Monday, October 14.
