WWE Confirms Brock Lesnar's TV Return For Next Monday Night's RAW
On Monday’s edition of RAW, the first episode of the show following the WWE Draft last Tuesday night, WWE announced the official television return date for “The Beast Incarnate.”
It was announced that Brock Lesnar will be making his return to WWE TV on next Monday’s edition of RAW, which emanates from Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
The last time fans saw Lesnar, he was making a successful Octagon return in the co-main event of the historic UFC 200 pay-per-view, defeating top ten ranked heavyweight contender Mark Hunt in his first UFC fight in over five years, only to pop hot in both an out-of-competition drug test administered by USADA in late June, as well as his in-competition drug test taken the day of the event.
Lesnar is scheduled to make his in-ring return for WWE at the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view, where he is slated to compete against “The Viper” Randy Orton, who also just made his WWE return at the Battleground pay-per-view on Sunday night, where he actually referenced Lesnar’s ongoing UFC drug test issues.
WWE SummerSlam takes place on Sunday, August 21, 2016 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Join us here at the website on 8/21 for live coverage of the SummerSlam PPV.
