Lesnar is scheduled to defend his title Braun Strowman at WWE’s next big event, Royal Rumble, on Sunday, January 27, 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona at Chase Field that will air on the WWE Network. This will mark his first title defense since winning the strap when he beat Strowman for the vacant title at the Crown Jewel event.
He was last seen in action once he defeated WWE Champion Daniel Bryan in a non-title match last month at the Survivor Series pay-per-view. His last appearance on RAW came back on the go-home show for Survivor Series.
WWE has also confirmed that Paul Heyman is set to appear on this Monday’s episode of Raw to hype Lesnar’s next title defense. This episode will serve as the Christmas Eve edition of the show.
