Cena & McIntyre are getting ready to face each other, but they get interrupted by Lio Rush & Bobby Lashley and Lio is talking about Seth Rollins attacking them before tonight’s RAW started.
Rollins attacks them again and Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose joined the brawl as well. Cena & McIntyre are also brawling with them now and out comes Finn Balor to join the brawl!
This leads to a 6 man tag team match:
John Cena, Seth Rollins & Finn Balor vs. Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley & Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose
It should be noted that all these 6 men will be a part of the Men’s Royal Rumble 2019 match.
