WWE Monday Night Raw 04/09/18 Spoilers follow for the Raw After Wrestlemania.
Universal Champion Brock Lesnar Re-Signs With WWE, But Will He Be At Raw Tonight? What’s Next For Roman Reigns and Will We Finally See Bobby Lashley? #RawAfterMania
Late in the day WWE announced the following:
…WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon announced today that Universal Champion Brock Lesnar has re-signed with WWE. Lesnar’s next appearance is scheduled for the Greatest Royal Rumble event, where he will compete against Roman Reigns in a Steel Cage Match for the Universal Title at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Friday, April 27, at 7 p.m. AST.
The preview for tonight’s Monday Night Raw concerning Lesnar and Reigns read as follows:
The Beast came marching in
Paul Heyman said it would be a spoiler, and a spoiler it was. Brock Lesnar defeated Roman Reigns in one of the most shocking WrestleMania main events in history to retain the Universal Championship.
The Beast and Reigns threw down in the barbaric contest, which saw broken tables, a busted open Reigns and six F-5s, which led to The Anomaly standing tall. What new challenges await Lesnar as he continues his now seemingly unstoppable reign atop the red brand? And what does Roman Reigns do now that he’s come up short in his quest to finally tame The Beast?
So, the news release noting Lesnar’s re-signs notes his next appearance will be at the Greatest Royal Rumble at the end of April. While the Raw preview notes what is next for Lesnar, but ends with a focus on Reigns. So, will Lesnar show up tonight or at The Greatest Royal Rumble or both?
Also, the Raw after Wrestlemania is typically where we see debuts and returns. Will Bobby Lashley finally debut and step gunning for Lesnar’s championship?
Stay tuned for Raw tonight to see what happens to shape Raw’s main event heavyweight scene! Raw starts at 8 PM tonight and emanates from the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, LA.
