WWE fans are in for a treat as Brock Lesnar, known to many as "The Beast," has arrived in Jacksonville for tonight's "WWE Raw" edition at the VyStars Veterans Memorial Arena. According to reliable sources, Lesnar was not initially scheduled for the show, but plans have changed, and he is now very much scheduled to appear.
The World Heavyweight Championship tournament kicks off tonight, and twelve superstars from "Raw" and "WWE SmackDown" will compete for the newly-revived belt. Although Lesnar is not slated to participate in the tournament, Cody Rhodes, who defeated Lesnar in the main event of WWE Backlash on Saturday, will be in action.
Rhodes is set to take on Finn Balor and The Miz in one of tonight's two tournament triple-threat contests.
Brock Lesnar Seeks Revenge on Rhodes
After his loss at WWE Backlash, where Rhodes used a double wristlock to shift the leverage for a sneaky rollup pin, Lesnar was seen fuming at the result.
He may seek revenge on Rhodes during tonight's "Raw" show. Fans eagerly anticipate Lesnar's appearance, and many speculate that he could show up to destroy Rhodes and take him out of the championship tournament. If this happens, it would extend Rhodes' quest for world title gold and likely set up a rematch between the two at Night of Champions in Saudi Arabia.
It's worth noting that tonight's "WWE Raw" will be the first with the new rosters that were drafted throughout both "Raw" and "WWE SmackDown" earlier this month. Lesnar and other free agents like Dolph Ziggler, Mustafa Ali, and Lesnar's WrestleMania opponent Omos negotiated a free agent status.
It will be interesting to see how Lesnar fits into this new roster and what surprises he has in store for WWE fans. WWE fans are in for an exciting night as Brock Lesnar arrives in Jacksonville for "WWE Raw" at the VyStars Veterans Memorial Arena.
Although he's not scheduled to compete in the championship tournament, Lesnar's presence will surely add some excitement to the show. Keep your eyes peeled for what will surely be an electrifying appearance from "The Beast" tonight.
