Brock Lesnar appearing on WWE Raw next week


WWE Champion Brock Lesnar is set to appear on Raw for the second straight week.

At the end of tonight's show, it was announced that Lesnar will be appearing again on Raw next Monday. The show is taking place at the Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky.

Lesnar returned to WWE television for the first time since Survivor Series on tonight's Raw. It was announced that -- instead of defending his title at the pay-per-view -- Lesnar will be in the men's Royal Rumble and will enter the match at number one.

Roman Reigns, AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio, Ricochet, Erick Rowan, and Drew McIntyre have also been confirmed for the men's Rumble. Including next week, there are two more episodes of Raw left before the PPV.

Here are the matches that have been confirmed for next week's Raw:

  • Seth Rollins & AOP vs. Kevin Owens, Samoa Joe & Big Show in a "fist fight"
  • AJ Styles vs. Randy Orton
  • Bobby Lashley vs. Rusev
  • Aleister Black vs. Buddy Murphy
