Tonight’s Monday Night RAW will feature the return of the WWE World Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar, back for his first appearance since the night after SummerSlam.
Lesnar will be there to confront his number one contender John Cena after Cena issued an ultimatum to Heyman on last week’s show. This is also the go-home show before Night of Champions so it’s important to have Lesnar on for the final push before the pay-per-view.
Speaking of Lesnar, rumors are that WWE is now in a position where they can have Lesnar appear on any show they want and pay him accordingly on a prorate based on his current deal. Lesnar’s WWE contract calls for a limited number of television appearances and wrestling matches but since winning the WWE title it seems that WWE and Lesnar have come to terms on a new agreement.
There’s only match announced for tonight’s broadcast and that’s a Divas tag team match between Brie Bella and AJ against Nikki Bella and Paige.
