WWE Royal Rumble 2022 is waiting later this month with a dream match on the card. Brock Lesnar is back in the fold of Monday Night Raw and he began the New Year with a bang. WWE Universe was delighted to see the babyface version of him who will now collide with the All-Mighty Bobby Lashley to defend his WWE Championship at the Rumble.

The first Raw episode towards Royal Rumble 2022 was kicked off with Paul Heyman introducing the new WWE Champion in Lesnar who came out to a big pop. He threw the steel ring steps in the ring and stood on top of them while Paul Heyman acknowledged him, mocking Roman Reigns. The advocate client duo was apparently back, together.
