Brock Lesnar announced for next week's WWE Raw


Brock Lesnar is set to appear on Raw next week.

The WWE Universal champion will be on the program just days before he’s due to defend the Universal title in a steel cage against Roman Reigns at the Greatest Royal Rumble. This will be the first time he’s appeared on WWE television since defeating Roman Reigns to retain the title at WrestleMania 34.

Lesnar has been the subject of much speculation in recent weeks, as it wasn’t known if he was set to stay with the WWE or if he was going to UFC. After a number of teases, it was announced the day after WrestleMania that he had signed a short term deal with WWE and would be defending the Universal title in Saudi Arabia. Lesnar has held the championship since April 2, 2017 when he defeated Goldberg at WrestleMania 33.

Raw next week will be at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri.
