The intense rivalry between WWE Champion Drew McIntyre and Randy Orton has been one of the highlights of WWE’s main roster programming this summer and it is set to continue this coming Monday on Raw.
WWE have announced a mega main event for this Monday which will see Drew McIntyre and WWE Raw Tag Team Champions The Street Profits battle Randy Orton, Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler.
The news will come as music to the ears of those who have relished the rivalry over the WWE Championship as well as everyone who was glad to see Robert Roode pushed into the main event picture upon his return to the red brand last Monday.
McIntyre’s bad blood with ‘The Viper’ began after the stalwart took Edge out of action with a con-chair-to and has taken in stars such as Keith Lee and legends Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, Big Show and Christian, all of who Orton injured as he eyed the WWE Championship.
The rivalry has seen sneak attacks backstage where Orton dislocated the champion’s jaw with a trifector of punts, numerous claymore kicks to an embittered challenger, a showdown at SummerSlam 2020 and an Ambulance Match at WWE Clash of Champions.
Let’s not forget that McIntyre also has previous with both Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode too.
In addition to successfully defending the WWE Championship against Roode on last week’s edition of Raw, McIntyre is also the former partner of Ziggler who stepped-up to challenge the Scot for the gold at The Horror Show at Extreme Rules.
