The reasoning behind WWE deciding to bring back Brock Lesnar earlier than the SummerSlam event has a lot to due with the RAW ratings being down since he last appeared on WWE television.
This past Monday’s episode of RAW averaged a 2.54 cable TV rating, which is the lowest rating the show has done for the month of May since the late 1990s.
WWE originally planned on having Lesnar return to face Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Title at SummerSlam, however now that match is rumored to take place at the Battleground event in July.
– Randy Orton was spotted this weekend in San Antonio, which is the site for tomorrow’s episode of RAW. F4WOnline reports that this may be an indication that he’ll be returning to television tomorrow night.
As WWE.com reported, Randy Orton has been absent from WWE television because the company hadn’t booked him for a match at tonight’s Elimination Chamber event.
