Predicting Brock Lesnar’s Next 4 WWE Raw Appearances

1 of 4

With the next four dates for Brock Lesnar’s WWE Raw appearances being announced, what could he do?

Brock Lesnar has been away from WWE TV since the post-WrestleMania 33 episode of Raw. This saw him and Paul Heyman call out Roman Reigns — who had just defeated the Undertaker at the Show of Shows. However, Braun Strowman made his way to the ring, eyed the Universal Championship and backed away from a potential fight.

Since then, we’ve had Raw‘s Payback pay-per-view take place, but without Lesnar. He also hasn’t factored into the Extreme Rules build, so he’s not a good bet to be involved.

However, the next four Raw appearances for the Conquerer have been announced. This doesn’t start for another month, but it’s worth looking into what he could do in his June and early-July outings on Monday nights.

June 12

Lesnar’s first return date will be Monday, June 12, in Lafayette Louisiana. It’s not the post-Extreme Rules episode of Raw, making for potentially one week too late to bring Lesnar back. That may always change, but for now, this will be his official return.

The first night of the Beast Incarnate’s return should see him get challenged for the WWE Universal Championship, with multiple Superstars lining up. By then it will have been over two months without this title appearing on Raw. So much for the 30-day rule Naomi had to adhere to, right?

With Braun Strowman out of the picture, until the summer begins, we should get someone different named the No. 1 Contender to the Universal Championship. Options include Finn Balor, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Samoa Joe and the Miz. Maybe we get a match with some of these Superstars involved, leading to something that tops the No. 1 Contenders Match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship?

The winner will get Lesnar at Great Balls of Fire, which takes place on July 9. It’s the first advertised title defense for him, and the likely main event of the show. Who will end up facing him in Dallas?
