Update --

New WWE Champion Bobby Lashley will make his first title defense on tonight's episode of Raw.

WWE has announced that tonight's Raw will feature a WWE Championship rematch between Lashley and former champion The Miz. Last week, Lashley defeated The Miz in a lumberjack match to win the WWE Championship.

Last week's Raw included a show-long storyline where The Miz tried to get out of facing Lashley. Miz delayed the match by claiming to be sick, then ran out of the match and purposely lost by countout when it did take place. Shane McMahon then told Miz that he would need to legitimately defend the WWE Championship against Lashley or he would be stripped of the title and it would be given to Lashley.

Lashley defeated The Miz in dominant fashion in the lumberjack match and won with The Hurt Lock.

Prior to losing the title to Lashley, The Miz had become WWE Champion by cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase on Drew McIntyre at last month's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. It was said that Miz and Lashley made a deal where Lashley would get the first shot at Miz's title if he attacked McIntyre and helped Miz cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase.

Lashley celebrating his WWE Championship win is also set for tonight's Raw. Lashley's Hurt Business stablemates MVP, Shelton Benjamin, and Cedric Alexander will join him for the celebration.
