During Monday’s episode of Raw, the WWE championship match at Survivor Series was set following Brock Lesnar’s return to the show.
Lesnar kicked off the show with Paul Heyman in search of Rey Mysterio leading to a series of scenes throughout the show of Lesnar mauling people in the back and attacking announcer Dio Maddin with an F-5 through the announcer’s desk.
This climaxed with Mysterio appearing and attacking Lesnar with a bat to the knee followed by a belt shot with the WWE championship. Mysterio issued the challenge for the Survivor Series with the match officially added to the show.
Prior to the Survivor Series, the two had a pair of singles matches during Lesnar’s original WWE run with matches on SmackDown in October 2002 and December 2003.
