Last week on Monday Night Raw, Goldberg confronted Drew McIntyre and challenged the Scotsman to a WWE Championship match at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view later this month.
Following on from this, WWE has announced that Drew McIntyre will be in action on Monday Night Raw next week, going one-on-one with Randy Orton, the man he beat to win the title.
WWE announced the match on SmackDown last night, and posted the following update on their website:
The target on the WWE Champion’s back is bigger than ever, and The Viper aims to strike this Monday on Raw in non-title action.
Drew McIntyre successfully defended his title last week on the red brand in an all-out battle against Keith Lee, but the biggest fireworks were saved for after the match. Goldberg returned to close Raw Legends Night with a Royal Rumble challenge for The King of Claymore Country. Before facing off with Randy Orton, McIntyre will address the challenge from the iconic Superstar.
The Legend Killer spent most of last Monday tormenting the honored guests and scored a victory over Jeff Hardy. Orton will now turn his attention back to the fighting champion, as McIntyre ended The Viper’s latest WWE Title reign mere weeks ago.
Can McIntyre push back another challenge from his rival? Or will Orton deliver a message in his path of destruction?
Speaking of Randy Orton, it has emerged that Vince McMahon initially didn’t want to sign the third-generation wrestler and had to be convinced by a top AEW name to give him a chance.
