Brock Lesnar is the current WWE Universal Champion on the Raw brand. He won the title at WrestleMania 33 on April 2, appeared on Raw the next night and hasn’t been on WWE programming since then. Lesnar wasn’t a part of Raw’s Payback PPV on April 30 and isn’t scheduled to be at Raw’s Extreme Rules PPV on June 4.
Lesnar’s next PPV appearance and likely next match will be at WWE Great Balls of Fire (what a name!) on July 9 in Dallas. We noted that already in a report in late April.

When is Lesnar coming back to Raw? We finally have some answers thanks to a new report from PWInsider, who has listed the following dates for Lesnar appearances.
June 12 – Lafayette, Louisiana
June 26 – Los Angeles, California
July 3 – Phoenix, Arizona (Last Raw before Great Balls of Fire)
July 9 – Dallas Texas for Great Balls of Fire.
Jul 10 – Houston, Texas (Raw after Balls of Fire)
As for his opponent at Great Balls of Fire on July 9, we don’t know yet. Braun Strowman was likely going to be the guy, but he’s out with an elbow injury and they have to find somebody else. Names like Finn Balor and Seth Rollins are possibilities. Maybe even Bray Wyatt. For now, it’s just random guessing. I may write a column about it soon.
Lesnar is also expected to be in a featured match at SummerSlam on August 20 as well, so he should be appearing on TV more regularly in July and August as well.
