Brock Lesnar made an unannounced appearance on Raw XXX Monday night, returning to WWE to make a statement during the United States Championship main event.

Lesnar interfered in the no-DQ title match between Bobby Lashley and Austin Theory, hitting an F-5 on both men, dropping Theory on top of Lashley, allowing the champ to retain his title.

The stroll-in by the Beast is sure to rekindle the feud between Lesnar and Lashley just as WrestleMania season gets started. Brock and Bobby have squared off twice in singles action, with Lashley winning the WWE Championship at Royal Rumble last year, and Lesnar defeating the All Mighty at Crown Jewel in November.

A third singles match between these two behemoths at Mania seems to be in the cards, though there had been talks of Lesnar facing Gunther at WrestleMania. Whether this isn't in the works or will be folded into a triple threat or whatever is obviously up in the air at the moment.

The question at this point is whether Lesnar and Lashley will collide in the Royal Rumble this weekend or perhaps at Elimination Chamber next month. There also is the outstanding question of whether MVP and his efforts to re-form the Hurt Business will factor into this developing story. We could start getting answers in the coming days, if not, weeks ahead.
