Brock Lesnar is heading to San Antonio, Texas for the Royal Rumble.

Just days after returning to WWE on the 30th anniversary of Monday Night Raw, Lesnar headed to SmackDown to cause some more chaos. On the show, The Beast interrupted a brawl involving Bobby Lashley, The Miz, Austin Theory, and the New Day.
