According to KLAC-AM 570, a local sports radio station in which iHeart has ownership interest and I was just listening to, Brock Lesnar is not only scheduled for RAW on June 26th, he will also be in action, defending the WWE Universal Championship. No mention of an opponent at the time of the advertisement though.

I can't wrap my head around Lesnar defending on RAW. If this is true it must be WWE's audible in response to Braun's injury. Even then RAW has a PPV on June 4th so why not have the match there instead of after MitB only weeks before great balls of fire?

I don't think that the title match will actually be on the televised Raw, just the post show dark match, and he'll probably be facing the Big Show or Mark Henry, which shouldn't last any longer than two-three minutes.

The summer is always a slump for television ratings. This would be a good way to drum up viewership the week before American families are all going on vacation. Smart business per usual.

Sometimes rumours are leaked by the company to draw in smarks and get people talking when ratings have recently dropped.

In about 5 months you'll start to hear the one about the Undertaker returning.

I actually really like Lesnar UNTIL he gets a title. He has a great stigma, and seeing him fight very rarely is actually really cool, but when he's champion, all it does is make the title not matter in the show. I know, technically every Raw is basically five guys trying to get a shot at the title, but what does it matter if we never get to see the title in three to four months. Ah whatever, that's a topic for another day

It would be nice to see him wrestle on Raw, and I can see it happening, but I can't see it lasting longer than two minutes

I'd love to see a segment where WWE send someone to try and take the title from Lesnar. That could add some much needed context here, also it would mean that Lesnar would be able to crush someone.

If Lesnar defends the title on Raw, which is incredibly unlikely given his booking, it would be in a squash match against Ambrose.

If not a squash match it will end with some form of shinanigans going on. Im not convinced they will have him compete on RAW at all just my thoughts.
