Brock Lesnar will not be at Raw

The fallout of last night’s shocking end of SummerSlam has been on everyone’s lips today, leading some to hope that Brock Lesnar would appear on Raw tonight (Aug. 22).

Even before his “TKO” victory over a bloodied Randy Orton, and subsequent F5 of SmackDown Live General Manager Shane McMahon, Brock was not advertised for the show, which will be held at the same venue as Sunday’s pay-per-view (PPV) - Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

Despite that, the cliffhanger nature of the angle (and the fact that the travel-averse Lesnar wouldn’t have to go anywhere to make an appearance) make it seem plausible the Beast Incarnate could show up on USA Network.

Not so, according to PWInsider, whose sources tell them there are no plans for Brock to be on Raw.

That doesn’t mean the storyline won’t be advanced, as interest demands - and the official preview from the company website promises.

See you at 8PM Eastern where we’ll learn how WWE and the Raw brass will address the situation and their volatile Superstar.
