Asuka And Drew McIntyre Announced For This Week's WWE Raw
WWE has confirmed that both Asuka and WWE Champion Drew McIntyre will be present on this week's edition of Monday Night Raw.
Last week, the pair were both left reeling as McIntyre was the victim of an RKO 'outta nowhere!' and Asuka lost her Raw Women's Championship after Bayley viciously attacked her former Tag Team partner Kairi Sane and Sasha Banks picked up the victory via count out.
According to a WWE press release, it looks like Asuka could be 'out for payback' after the 'career-ending attack' on Sane.
In that same press release, the company suggested that McIntyre will find a way to respond to Randy Orton's sudden RKO at the end of last week's show. The 'Legend Killer' made it clear that he wanted to become WWE Champion for the tenth time a week ago and McIntyre quickly accepted his challenge for SummerSlam.
The WWE Champion has overcome all who have stood before him since winning the belt from Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36, with the likes of Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley, Andrade and Big Show all falling to him over the last few months.
Will his dominant reign continue past SummerSlam? Or is another Age of Orton about to begin?
