We now know what Brock Lesnar’s role at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view event will be.
WWE kicked off Monday’s episode of RAW in Oklahoma City, OK at the Chesapeake Energy Arena on the USA Network with a promo by Paul Heyman alongside the WWE Champion in the ring.
Heyman cut a promo about how Lesnar has done several historic things in his career but at the Royal Rumble, he will do something unprecedented. This is where Heyman announced that Lesnar won’t be defending the WWE Championship at this show.
Instead, “The Beast” will be competing in the actual Royal Rumble Match. Heyman also revealed that Lesnar will be starting out the match as the first entrant.
Heyman ended his promo by saying that Lesnar will be the first and last man in the match and that’s a spoiler, according to the humble advocate.
