Lesnar vs. Strowman vs. Kane confirmed for WWE Royal Rumble

As expected, the Universal Championship will be on the line in a triple threat match at the Royal Rumble.

After Braun Strowman and Kane went to a double countout in the main event of Raw last Monday, Kurt Angle opened this week's show and said he would be determining Brock Lesnar's match for the Rumble by the end of the night. He was then interrupted by Strowman, who wanted to face Lesnar after standing tall in his post-match brawl with Kane last week. That brought out Kane and eventually Lesnar and Paul Heyman, and Angle announced that it would be Lesnar vs. Strowman vs. Kane at next month's pay-per-view.

Following the announcement, Lesnar clotheslined Strowman over the top rope and gave Kane an F5, but Kane sat up as Lesnar was walking up the ramp.

Dave Meltzer had reported that Lesnar vs. Strowman vs. Kane was WWE's plan for the Royal Rumble on last week's post-Raw edition of Wrestling Observer Radio. Aside from the Royal Rumble match, the triple threat is the first thing officially confirmed for the January 28th PPV.
