WWE Raw Preview (23/03/20): Brock Lesnar Returns; Randy Orton Responds To Edge
Coronavirus outbreak has not been able to put a halt in WWE’s momentums as the company is fully gearing up to host WrestleMania 36 in a big way. Less than two weeks remaining from the show, WWE Raw is bringing another no-audience version of the show to progress the storylines eyeing April 4 and 5th. A number of appearances have also been made to hype it up.
WWE Champion Brock Lesnar will be here, after three weeks looking forward to wreaking havoc on the show after what Drew McIntyre did to him during the last appearance. The challenger for the prime title will also be in attendance at the show. Randy Orton will make appear on WWE Raw to respond to the challenge laid down by Edge, last week. Also, we expect more title matches to be announced when WWE Raw airs from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
The headliner for this Monday Night is none other than WWE Champion Brock Lesnar who is returning on the red brand coming off a humiliation at the hands of his challenger, Drew McIntyre. The very next episode of WWE RAW after Super ShowDown witnessed McIntyre dropping Lesnar with three back to back Claymore Kicks. While the audience loves to watch it, The Beast did not.
So, he is making his comeback on his territory to deliver a message to the challenger who is on a roll, lately. Drew McIntyre will also be present on WWE Raw under the same roof that promises a heated confrontation. The question remains whether McIntyre can keep his strong winds going just weeks before WrestleMania 36.
Last week, Edge challenged Randy Orton to a Last Man Standing Match at WrestleMania 36 to culminate in their personal rivalry in a big way. Orton was nowhere to be found, last week during Edge’s promo. But WWE.com confirmed that he will be present this week to respond to the challenge and to make the match official, perhaps,
“The Rated-R Superstar was clearly looking right at his former friend and tag team partner when he threw down the gauntlet. The Apex Predator will address Edge’s challenge — and, presumably, some of his fighting words — in an appearance that will set the course for one of this season’s most intricate, twisted rivalries. Tune in next Monday to hear Orton’s answer, live at 8/7 C on USA Network.”
Speaking of issuing and accepting challenges, Kevin Owens accepted one laid down by Seth Rollins to confirm their match at WrestleMania 36. With so much bad blood in store between these two, more confrontations are needed to hype up the match. Owens will be coming for retribution after getting victimized by Rollins and Co a couple of weeks ago.
Rollins’ buddies AOP could be in the tag team titles match as they have also been building a rivalry against the WWE Raw tag team champions the Street Profits. Another match could also get confirmed on WWE Raw over the United States Championship. Rey Mysterio defeated the champion Andrade via clean pinfall. So these two might be getting to create magic all inside the squared circle. More on the storyline will be let known when WWE Raw airs with the latest episode.
