Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar, has been hired by the WWE as a new television analyst for the company’s flagship program, Raw.
Lesnar joins the company as a contributor on the upcoming Monday Night Raw on ESPN and a new segment titled “The Truth” that will air on Thursday.
It is the latest addition to WWE’s talent roster for the upcoming season, which is in its fourth season.
Lesneran was part of the roster that won a Super Bowl title in 2016 and earned a WWE Championship in 2017.
A two-time WWE Champion, Lesnar was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2014.
The former WWE Champion had a career that spanned more than 10 years in pro wrestling, starting as a heel in WWE, then moving to the main roster in WWE’s Cruiserweight Classic era and then to Raw as a mainstay of the program.
He is best known for being the former heel of former WWE Tag Team Champion, Randy Orton, who retired from pro wrestling after the match with Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 30 in 2015.
Lesnaran also worked as a commentator for WrestleMania XXX and Raw and will continue to do so, as well as work as a co-host on Smackdown Live, where he has appeared as a guest host on more than a dozen times.
“It is an honor to have Brock join the WWE Universe and be a contributor,” said WWE Chief Creative Officer, Kevin Dunn, in a statement.
“He brings a unique perspective and knowledge to our programming, and we are excited to have him on board.”
The WWE announced Lesnar as a “Senior Contributor” in September, a position he filled on Monday.
The new role marks a change in the way the company deals with its top performers, as Lesnar is not a regular guest on the network.
Lesnear joined the WWE Network last year after working as a special correspondent on WWE programming.
Lesneears first major role on WWE television was in the companys flagship program Raw in 2016, where Lesnar hosted a segment called “The Reality Show.”
The show, in which Lesnar and a group of other wrestling superstars posed as celebrities for an episode of “The View,” featured a discussion on how celebrities act on camera and how they have evolved over the years.
Lesnis was also a regular contributor on Raw in 2017, where the segment, titled “Truth,” focused on the role the WWE has played in helping the WWE superstars grow in the ring.
Lesns role on Raw also included the weekly segment “The Inside Story,” which was Lesnar’s first-ever appearance on television.
The program was followed by a podcast called “Focused on Wrestling,” which aired on WWE Network from June through October.
The WWE has previously hired former WWE Intercontinental Champion, Chris Jericho, as a producer on Raw, a role that he has also had since 2014.
