Night two of the 2023 WWE Draft kicked off on the 5/1 edition of Monday Night Raw. It was revealed that Brock Lesnar will remain a free agent. 

Lesnar appeared on the program and Adam Pearce sent a bulk of security to the ringside area to prevent a brawl between Lesnar and Cody Rhodes. Rhodes ambushed Lesnar from behind and dropped him to the mat.
