It’s official…WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman are back together.
Monday Night Raw kicked off with Paul Heyman introducing his client, Brock Lesnar. This seems to back up the theory that Heyman was supposed to doublecross Reigns last night and help Lesnar with the Universal Championship.
Lesnar thanked Heyman for pulling the strings to help him become the WWE Champion on Saturday night. Heyman said he negotiated for Lesnar to be a free agent and he negotiated to have Lesnar added to the WWE Championship match.
Heyman confirmed that Lesnar will defend the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble against the winner of tonights’ Fatal 4-Way match featuring Big E vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Seth Rollins vs. Kevin Owens. Click here for spoiler news on the planned main event for the Royal Rumble PPV.
