– While the focus of Monday’s big RAW in New York City will be the 25th Anniversary of WWE’s flagship show, they do still have a Royal Rumble pay-per-view to build to. WWE posted the following teaser on WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, Kane and Braun Strowman for Monday’s Rumble go-home edition of RAW:

How will Brock Lesnar and Kane respond to Braun Strowman?

It’s been a rollercoaster week for Braun Strowman, but The Monster Among Men has been the one at the controls. When Strowman last encountered Universal Champion Brock Lesnar and Kane — his competitors in Royal Rumble’s anticipated Triple Threat Match — he sent part of the Raw set crashing down on both titans, nearly causing serious injury to two of Team Red’s most feared competitors.

That heinous act got Strowman fired by Raw General Manager Kurt Angle, but his rampage that nearly destroyed a $12 million production truck and sent Michael Cole soaring off the stage got him rehired by Team Red Commissioner Stephanie McMahon. After all, it was the only way to stop him.

Less than one week before the Triple Threat Match at Royal Rumble, Lesnar and Kane return for Raw 25. How will these juggernauts retaliate against the seemingly unstoppable Strowman?

– WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair posted the following photo showing progress he’s made since being hospitalized with serious health issues back in mid-August of 2017. The Nature Boy is scheduled to return to WWE TV on Monday’s RAW 25th Anniversary show.
