WWE made a major announcement last week on Monday Night Raw; that Brock Lesnar would be returning to the show. This would be the first time The Beast Incarnate would be appearing on the company's programming since he defeated Dean Ambrose at WrestleMania 32.
Lesnar was drafted to Monday Night Raw by Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley during the WWE Draft a couple of weeks ago, but his manager, Paul Heyman, wasn't drafted.
This has lead to speculation that the former ECW owner will no longer be appearing alongside The Beast anymore, as many superstars with managers were drafted with one another during the draft. However, according to some reports, those rumors should now be put to bed.

A report by Wrestling Inc says: "There had been some speculation on Paul Heyman's WWE status after his contract recently expired but PWInsider has confirmed that Heyman will be on RAW with Lesnar.
"It was believed that Heyman would eventually sign a new deal, in time for the SummerSlam match against Randy Orton, but now we know that Heyman will also return before then."
Raw this week would also be the first time Lesnar has appeared in the WWE since he failed two USADA drug tests, one before and one after his fight against Mark Hunt at UFC 200, which are likely to see him receive a two-year suspension by the UFC.
Despite the seriousness of the rule break, WWE has decided not to suspend The Beast as he is only a part-time performer and not subject to their Talent Wellness policy like full-timers.
It will be interesting to see how the fans react to this on Monday Night Raw. Another reason to tune in.
