Things on WWE Raw are heating up as we move forward to Summerslam. The flagship programming of WWE is dealing with declining TV ratings as the show-makers are looking forward to presenting compact shows to counter those problems. As seen on last night’s Smackdown, two major segments have been confirmed for Monday Night featuring two top names from the roster.
Asuka will be on Monday’s WWE RAW episode. She will be there to react to last week’s RAW Women’s Title loss to WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Sasha Banks. She might also be looking to seek redemption for the career-ending attack on Kairi Sane by Smackdown women’s champion, Bayley.
It should be noted that The Empress of Tomorrow featured in a title match against Sasha Banks, last week on WWE Raw. She was in control when Bayley attacker her tag team partner Kairi Sane, backstage. Asuka left the ring to save her buddy and in the process, got counted out. Banks became a five-time Women’s Champion via a count-out victory.
Now, WWE.com informed that Asuka has something to offer to the Golden Role Models on WWE Raw,
“Last Monday, Bayley’s vicious attack on Asuka’s friend and tag team partner Kairi Sane allowed Sasha Banks to capture the Raw Women’s Championship. But not long after, Asuka’s agony turned into pure rage.
How will Bayley & The Boss’ reign of dominance across brands continue? Will Asuka be out for payback after the career-ending attack on her best friend? Find out this Monday on Raw at 8/7 C on USA!”
It was also announced that WWE Champion Drew McIntyre will be on WWE RAW. He will be there to address the sudden attack by Randy Orton to close the show.
Last Monday night, he’s been on the receiving end of an ‘RKO outta nowhere’ by the Apex Predator. These two will now compete at SummerSlam 2020 on August 23 with the WWE Title hanging in the balance.
But before the match, the rivalry needs to be heated up and thus McIntyre will send a message to The Viper when WWE Raw airs with its next installment,
“Drew McIntyre never saw it coming. Randy Orton made it clear that he’s coming for McIntyre’s WWE Championship last Monday on Raw, and The Viper struck first, dropping the champion with a thunderous RKO after McIntyre’s grueling win over Dolph Ziggler in an Extreme Rules Match. How will the fearless WWE Champion react to Orton’s ruthless attack outta nowhere? Find out on Raw, this Monday at 8/7 C on USA!”
