Brock Lesnar returning to RAW next week

Not since the night after WrestleMania 33 has the Universal Championship or the Champion Brock Lesnar appeared on RAW.

Until Sunday, Lesnar was kept away from the show ever since the night he won the belt from Goldberg in Orlando.


However Extreme Rules on Sunday named a new number one contender for his Championship and confirmed that the Beast will take on Samoa Joe at the Great Balls of Fire event in July.
That event is five weeks away and in that time we can expect to see a very intense rivalry unfold between Samoa Joe and Brock Lesnar.

Joe sent the first shot by attacking Lesnar's advocate on RAW on Monday, but a backstage conversation has now opened the door to Lesnar's return.

It would be confirmed later on in the show that Lesnar will in fact be at RAW next week with every intention of confronting Samoa Joe.
