This will be the go-home edition of RAW for the Royal Rumble 2019 PPV. Lesnar will defend his Universal Championship against Braun Strowman at this PPV.
Looking at how Lesnar’s WWE schedule is these days, it won’t be surprising if Lesnar only makes one appearance on RAW prior to his Royal Rumble bout against Strowman.
However, that might not sit well with some fans, but in the end that’s what WWE wants – more heat on Lesnar so the babyface that beats him for the Title gets over big time.
