Brock Lesnar's next WWE opponent announced for Houston

Brock Lesnar returns to WWE to face Sheamus

Brock Lesnar's next opponent in WWE will be Sheamus as things are advertised.

A Lesnar vs. Sheamus match has been announced for a 1/8 house show at the Toyota Center in Houston.  It is one of two Lesnar house show appearances thus far announced for this year, with the second one being on 2/16.

Lesnar is advertised for a Raw return on 1/11 in New Orleans, which will likely be the night that his role in the Royal Rumble show will also be announced.

Lesnar's contract signed in April called for more dates, including an occasional house show, than his prior two contracts.  Lesnar did two house shows, one in Tokyo and one at Madison Square Garden, that ended up as live network specials.  But his third, held on 12/19 at the Forum in Inglewood, CA, was strictly a house show match with Alberto Del Rio.
