Brock Lesnar's return to 'RAW' 'guaranteed to give you something to talk about'
Paul Heyman has issued the warning
Buckle up: Brock Lesnar will be on 'Monday Night RAW.'
By Damon Martin
Brock Lesnar will return to the WWE Monday night on "RAW" in New Orleans on Jan. 11, and his impact will immediately be felt across the entire organization as the Royal Rumble draws near.
Lesnar hasn't been seen on air since the Survivor Series in November, when he finished his trilogy of matches with the Undertaker, putting the final nail in the coffin of their rivalry once and for all.
Now with the WWE making the push toward another major event with the Royal Rumble scheduled for Jan. 24 in Orlando, Fla., Lesnar is ready to return and his advocate Paul Heyman promises that he's not just coming back to say hello to the wrestlers in the back.
"By the mere fact that Brock Lesnar will physically appear live in the ring at 'Monday Night RAW', you are guaranteed something to talk about the next day at work," Heyman told FOX Sports on Wednesday.
"I have no problem showing up any given Monday and demonstrating to the WWE Universe how a proper promo is performed but when Brock Lesnar comes along with me, you know something substantive is going to be said and perhaps something impactful is going to happen."

Lesnar's appearances are always a major moment for the WWE Universe, especially ahead of one of the biggest events of the year like the Royal Rumble.
As of yet, Lesnar is set to appear on "Monday Night RAW" but considering the timing, it's hard to imagine the former WWE champion won't be targeting a spot on the Royal Rumble card — either in the 30-man over-the-top rope battle royal or in a single's match that same night.
The WWE threw a wrinkle in the match this year that could hold significance for Lesnar's return.
In most of the past years, the winner of the Royal Rumble goes on to challenge for the WWE heavyweight title at WrestleMania. This year, however, current title holder Roman Reigns will participate in the Royal Rumble match, defending his title with the last man standing then becoming the WWE heavyweight champion.
It's hard to imagine Lesnar's return won't coincide with something big at the Royal Rumble so next week's "RAW" will definitely be can't-miss television.
