In the recent tapings of the Monday Night Raw episode on December 31st, the appearance of three WWE superstars was announced for the program on January 7, 2019. The three confirmed names are Braun Strowman, former WWE Champion John Cena and the current Universal champion Brock Lesnar.
This would mean the return of John Cena to television after a time off the screens due to his foray into the film career. On the other hand, it is expected that Braun Strowman and Brock Lesnar have a face to face the Royal Rumble event, where both will fight for the Universal Championship that in the hands of The Beast.
So far there are no matches or other confirmed appearances for the program in question. It should be noted that being the first RAW program of the year will be full of surprises as has been usual for years. In addition, with the announcement of the change in the product by the board, there could be significant segments and announcements.
