WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar’s advocate, Paul Heyman, has confirmed that his client will make his return to Monday Night RAW tomorrow (Mon. December 18, 2017). Heyman took to Twitter to state that he and Lesnar are expecting to be informed who “The Beast” will be defending his title against at the Royal Rumble.
A No. 1-contender was supposed to be crowned last week on RAW when Kane and Braun Strowman went one-on-one in the main event, however, the match ended in a No Contest. Current plans suggest the Royal Rumble main event will be a Triple Threat match between Lesnar, Kane, and Strowman:
My client, the reigning defending undisputed #UniversalChampion @BrockLesnar and I will be at @WWE #RAW, and we anticipate being informed as to whom will be assigned the task of facing The Beast at #RoyalRumble. And we do indeed want that answer! pic.twitter.com/apqFGZ4Ph4
