WWE Champion Brock Lesnar will be in attendance when Raw comes to Philadelphia next Monday.

The Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia announced today that Lesnar will be appearing at next Monday's episode of Raw: "JUST ANNOUNCED! The New @WWE Champion, 'The Beast' Brock Lesnar will be live in Philly Next Monday for Monday Night RAW!"

In the main event of last night's Raw, Bobby Lashley defeated Big E, Seth Rollins, and Kevin Owens in a fatal four-way number one contender's match. Lashley will challenge for Lesnar's WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble on Saturday, January 29.

Lesnar was asked for comment during a backstage interview after Lashley's win. But instead of acknowledging Lashley, Lesnar said he'll be appearing at SmackDown this Friday. Lesnar said he'll see Roman Reigns there.

Reigns was supposed to defend his Universal Championship against Lesnar at Day 1, but that match couldn't happen due to Reigns testing positive for COVID-19. Lesnar was instead added to the WWE Championship match and defeated Big E, Rollins, Owens, and Lashley to win the title.

A triple threat match between Liv Morgan, Bianca Belair, and Doudrop on next Monday's Raw will determine Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch's challenger for the Royal Rumble. The episode will also feature Alexa Bliss' "journey back to Raw."
