Brock Lesnar Announced For WWE RAW – As noted earlier in our spoiler report, Brock Lesnar is set for his first WWE appearance since the Royal Rumble.
WWE has now officially announced that Lesnar will appear on tonight’s episode of RAW. The show is taking place at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.
In the men’s Royal Rumble, Lesnar entered at number 12 and was in the match for less than three minutes. He eliminated Santos Escobar, Angelo Dawkins, and Chad Gable but was then eliminated by Bobby Lashley, continuing the ongoing feud between the two. After his elimination, an angry Lesnar laid out Baron Corbin and put his hands on a referee.
Dave Meltzer reported last week that Lesnar will be working both WWE Elimination Chamber and WrestleMania 39. Elimination Chamber is being held in Montreal on Saturday, February 18.
“Lesnar has been confirmed to be working both Montreal and WrestleMania,” Meltzer wrote. “For Mania, it could be another match with Lashley. We were only told rumors of Gunther are false and that Steve Austin, who they had contacted for Lesnar, had turned down wrestling on the show.”
The updated lineup for tonight’s Raw is listed below:
- Steel cage match: Becky Lynch vs. Bayley
- Elimination Chamber qualifying match: Michin vs. Candice LeRae vs. Carmella vs. Piper Niven
- Elimination Chamber qualifying match: Angelo Dawkins vs. Damian Priest
- Elimination Chamber qualifying match: Montez Ford vs. Elias
- Brock Lesnar appears
