After his victory over WWE Hall Of Famer Edge in the “Greatest Wrestling Match Ever” in the main event of Backlash, Randy Orton will open tonight’s episode of RAW.

Below is what WWE posted about it:

“The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever is in the books, and Randy Orton emerged victorious in a physically and emotionally draining battle against his former friend Edge. Now, The Viper will open Monday Night Raw just one night after proving his in-ring supremacy against The Rated-R Superstar.

After last night’s grueling battle, rumors have been swirling that BOTH Superstars sustained injuries in the match.

What condition will both Superstars be in after such a brutal marathon of a match? Will Orton look to close the book on his rivalry with Edge after such a demanding battle? Is there another Superstar that will find himself in The Viper’s path?

Randy Orton will reveal all of his thoughts to kick off Raw tonight at 8/7 C on the USA Network.”

Also on tonight’s RAW, Asuka will defend the RAW Women’s Championship against Nia Jax in a rematch from Backlash, as their match ended in a Double Count-Out last night.

UPDATE: WWE has also announced that WWE Champion Drew McIntyre will team up with 24/7 Champion R-Truth to take on the team of Bobby Lashley & MVP, and two time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair will appear live on tonight’s RAW!
