Brock Lesnar returns to WWE just in time for the 'Royal Rumble'

WWE is pulling out some big guns leading into 2014. First came the announcement that Batista would return to the company after leaving in 2010. Now former UFC Champion Brock Lesnar is back in the company, appearing on "WWE RAW" on Monday (Dec. 30).

Lesnar returned with his on-screen manager  Paul Heyman, after not being seen on WWE programming since "SummerSlam," where he lost to CM Punk. It's notable because Lesnar has been rumored to be considering a return to competition in UFC as well.

Lesnar immediately put himself in contention for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship by declaring he would face the winner of the "Royal Rumble" title match, either John Cena or Randy Orton. In the short term, it looks like Lesnar will be feuding with Mark Henry.

What do you make of Lesnar's return?
