• Major Spoiler For This Week’s RAW

On this week’s episode of RAW, Randy Orton (accompanied by two time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair) will face Kevin Owens in a singles match.

Multiple sources have now confirmed that Flair will be written off WWE programming on this show, after “The Legend Killer” Randy Orton takes out the legendary Ric Flair.

Wrestlingnewsco is reporting that this was actually supposed to happen after Orton defeated Big Show last month, but Flair was kept off that show as a precautionary measure, as his wife, Wendy Barlow, was tested positive for COVID-19.
