MVP has told WWE Champion Bobby Lashley that he has some “surprises” planned for him for tonight’s episode of Raw.
This comes off the back of Lashley retaining the WWE Title over Braun Strowman and Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania Backlash in a three-way last night.
Speaking in a WWE interview after the match, MVP said:
“The champ has proven time and time again that he is the All Mighty WWE Champion. There’s not a man in history who works harder than he does. If you go to his Instagram, and see the workouts that he posts, mortal men will drop and die. Again and again, he has defended that title and shown the world that he’s the All Mighty.
“Now it is time for the champion to enjoy the fruits of his labor, right? Look, I’ve got everything lined up. I’ve got your trip. Let’s just say that tomorrow I’ve got some surprises for you. Take a little time off.”
While we don’t have an indication as to what those apparent “surprises” are, what we do know is that WWE has five weeks to build to Hell in a Cell where Lashley will likely be defending his championship in a Hell in a Cell match.
Having now beaten McIntyre several times, and pinning Strowman last night, it’s hard to figure out who’s going to be propelled into the WWE Title picture. Tonight’s “surprises” on Raw might give us some clues.
Will the “surprises” be new faces on the brand, upcoming talent promoted to the main event scene, or nothing of the sort? Maybe zombies.
