WWE announced that Drew McIntyre will be in action on Monday's episode of WWE Raw.
No opponent was announced for McIntyre. "The Scottish Psychopath" made an appearance on last week's episode, laying out Brock Lesnar with a series of Claymore Kicks. McIntyre is set to challenge Lesnar for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 36.
The Road to WrestleMania has begun, and Drew McIntyre is about to take his first steps in earnest down the path to Suplex City. The Men’s Royal Rumble Match winner and challenger to WWE Champion Brock Lesnar will be in action on Raw tonight, just one week after demolishing Lesnar with a trifecta of Claymores. Tune in tonight at 8/7 C to see who McIntyre will be facing, and how many times they’ll be kicked in the face.
It was also announced that Angel Garza will take on Rey Mysterio tonight on Raw.
Lost in the four-way tussle between Raw’s resident Latino icons is the unsettled bad blood between Rey Mysterio and Angel Garza, who put the Grand Slam Champion out of action with a Hammerlock DDT to the exposed concrete of an arena floor. Tonight, Rey has a chance to finally get even.
The Ultimate Underdog will square off against Garza for the first time since the latter’s Raw debut, a match that led to the aforementioned attack that put Mysterio on the shelf. Now that Rey is back in the swing of things, he has a chance to repay the former NXT Cruiserweight Champion for his aggression, though Garza has been on a steady upward climb since the second he showed up, and his confidence is clearly at an all-time high. Retribution will not be easily achieved.
The only other match/segment announced for Monday's episode of WWE Raw is the return of Edge, who will address Randy Orton following Orton hitting the RKO on Edge's wife Beth Phoenix last week.
Fightful will have live coverage of WWE Raw beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
