As was announced on Smackdown Live and later posted to WWE’s Twitter page, two HUGE returns are set for WWE Raw next Monday Night.
Brock Lesnar, who is now set to face off against the NEW WWE Champion AJ Styles, returns just six days before the Survivor Series Pay Per View. Previously, Paul Heyman laid into Jinder Mahal, who had been set to face Lesnar, so it will be interesting to see how Heyman’s tone has changed and whether or not we will see the New WWE Champion face to face with the Universal Champion on Monday night.
In related news, WWE has also announced the return of Roman Reigns, who has been recovering from an illness and notably absent in recent weeks and during the European tour. Reigns also missed the TLC pay per view, where we saw Raw commissioner Kurt Angle take his place during a matchup that was supposed to be the return match up for the Shield reunion.
In the video below, Reign’s return is being touted as a “big time reunion”, showing the three Shield members side by side. No word on what their role will be, but it is speculated that they will challenge the New Day to a match at Survivor Series due to the distraction the New Day caused during Rollins and Ambrose’s Tag Team Championship loss on Raw.
Two HUGE returns are set for an all-new @WWE #RAW NEXT MONDAY at 8/7c on @USA_Network! Believe that. #SDLive @WWERomanReigns @BrockLesnar pic.twitter.com/nVIPmRXIkF
