Last month, Rey Mysterio was forced to relinquish his United States Championship to Samoa Joe on Raw after suffering a shoulder injury.
Mysterio actually beat Samoa Joe to capture the championship a few weeks prior at the Money In The Bank pay-per-view. This was his first reign as United States Championship.
WWE has taken to Twitter to confirm that Monday’s Raw will see the return of the former WWE Champion.

WWE.com‘s article had the following to say on the matter.
Following the unbelievable set of circumstances in which he was forced to relinquish the United States Championship due to a shoulder injury, Rey Mysterio will return to Raw this Monday night.
What will The Greatest Mask of All Time have to say upon his return and how will he impact the ever-changing landscape of the red brand? Find out when Raw goes down this Monday night at 8/7 C on USA Network.
When relinquishing the title, Rey Mysterio said he would go after Samoa Joe and the United States title upon his return from injury.
However, since then, Ricochet has won the United States Championship and is currently in a feud with AJ Styles, and Samoa Joe is challenging Kofi Kingston for the WWE Championship at Extreme Rules.
Raw tomorrow night will certainly provide an indication into the plans WWE has for the masked legend.
Raw will also see a “Double Main Event”, part of which sees Andrade and Zelina Vega team up to take on Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch in mixed tag team action.
