WWE will bring a new episode of RAW tonight from the ThunderDome in Tampa Bay, Florida.
Last week’s show ended with Goldberg confronting WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. Riddle pinned United States Champion Bobby Lashley, while Randy Orton insulted Legends throughout the night and got a win over Jeff Hardy.
Peyton Royce and Lacey Evans got a big win over Women’s Tag Team Champions Charlotte Flair and Asuka, while Lucha House Party also defeated RAW Tag Team Champions Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander.
In this article, let’s take a look at 5 things that might happen on RAW tonight.
5. Randy Orton Wrestles In The Main Event Despite Drew McIntyre Being Pulled From The Show
As we noted before, WWE announced that WWE Champion Drew McIntyre tested positive for COVID-19 and has been placed in quarantine.
McIntyre was set to square off against Randy Orton in the main event of tonight’s RAW, but with McIntyre out of action, WWE will have to change the plans for the main event.
According to WrestleVotes, WWE is still going to have Orton compete in a singles match tonight, and they have started looking for a suitable replacement for McIntyre.
“Source – with Drew McIntyre out, WWE is keeping Randy Orton in tonight’s main event and are working on finding a suitable replacement to match up against the College Football Championship Game.”

While the name of the replacement is unknown, it’ll likely be a top star like Keith Lee. Another possibility would be Sheamus since he’s McIntyre’s close friend.
