Brock Lesnar to appear on Raw, fatal four-way to determine Royal Rumble challenger

Originally published at

The first episode of WWE Raw for 2022 will begin with an appearance by Brock Lesnar.

The new WWE champion is set to kick off tonight’s episode from the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina.

After Roman Reigns tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday, Lesnar was added to the WWE championship match where he pinned Big E. to become champion in a match that included Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, and Bobby Lashley.

The original fatal four-way match will take place tonight with Rollins, Owens, Lashley, and Big E. to determine who will be the next contender to challenge Lesnar for the title at the Royal Rumble on January 29th in St. Louis.

Damian Priest will defend the United States Championship against Dolph Ziggler where the title can change hands if Priest is disqualified or counted out. Ziggler has scored wins by count-out and disqualification on recent editions of WWE Raw.

Finally, the match between AJ Styles and Omos is set for tonight. They were advertised for last week’s episode but Omos did not appear and the match was changed to Styles taking on Apollo Crews.

We will be live at 11:15 p.m. ET tonight for Rewind-A-Raw for a full review of the show with Double Double+ Patrons having live access to the show.
