Update On Brock Lesnar's Status With WWE and Possible Royal Rumble Involvement

Will Brock be at the PPV?
MMA Fighting reports that Brock Lesnar is still very much a part of WWE and will have a match at the Royal Rumble this year.
The rumors that Lesnar would go back to the UFC was simply a publicity stunt to build up attention for his return tonight on Monday Night RAW. Lesnar is under an exclusive contract with WWE that doesn't expire until WrestleMania XXXI in 2015. It's not likely that Vince McMahon and Triple H would let him work a major fight for the UFC while under contract for them.
Lesnar is set to wrestle at the 2014 Royal Rumble, although it's unknown if he will be in the Rumble match itself. His return on RAW will lead into a program at the event, which Lesnar hasn't appeared on in ten years. The plan for WrestleMania, as previously reported, is to have Lesnar fight The Undertaker. Rumors of the match started in 2010 when Undertaker was at the UFC event where Lesnar lost the UFC Heavyweight title and the two had a heated (and allegedly scripted) conversation.
