More interesting matches have been scheduled for Monday’s episode of Raw, just 5 days out from WrestleMania 37.
Last night on SmackDown, it was announced that King Corbin will face Drew McIntyre one-on-one during Raw. In a video package on last night’s show, Corbin stated that he plans on taking out McIntyre ahead of WrestleMania, so he can challenge for the WWE Championship.
Bobby Lashley recently offered any star that can injure McIntyre his place in the WrestleMania title match. With big implications for Raw’s main event scene, it will be interesting to see how chaotic this bout ends up getting.
The WWE Champion is also set for action on Monday’s show. Bobby Lashley will face Cedric Alexander in a non-title match, in the wake of Alexander and Shelton Benjamin being kicked out of The Hurt Business.
After all the recent backlash following the last episode or Raw, it will be entertaining to see what’s next for the former Hurt Business competitors.
Set to be Lashley’s last bout before his WrestleMania title defence, only time will reveal whether the WWE Champion has underestimated the former Cruiserweight titleholder.
WWE shared both match announcements on Twitter:

Also set for the show is a match between the team of Rhea Ripley and Asuka, and the Women’s Tag Team Champions, Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.
