Monday Night RAW is back once again. This coming RAW is the go-home show for the upcoming Survivor Series PPV and features a main event with strong implications for the cross-brand show. Randy Orton faces Drew McIntyre in a rematch from Hell in a Cell; with the winner claiming the WWE Championship and going on to face SmackDown‘s Universal Champion, Roman Reigns. It has been a theme in recent years that a last-minute title changed has happened just before Survivor Series. This led to AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan facing Brock Lesnar (replacing Jinder Mahal and Styles himself). Can Drew McIntyre pull off something similar? We shall see. Let’s begin the preview!
The New Day vs The Hurt Business
The two biggest factions in the WWE today face off once again. Last week, Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander earned an opportunity to take Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods‘ RAW Tag Team championships away. Since moving to RAW in the recent draft, the Hurt Business made it their mission to establish dominance over the New Day. Without Big E, who remained on SmackDown, this task has become a whole lot more difficult for the New Day. The Hurt Business are on fire and look primed to take the titles away to Survivor Series, where they would face the Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford). This is sure to be a fun match and is certainly one not to miss.
RAW Main Event: Randy Orton (c) vs Drew McIntyre
Drew McIntyre has become something resembling the Face of the WWE in 2020. He has the look, he has the talent, and this year, he has proven he has the charisma to be the main guy. With Roman Reigns now a certified heel on SmackDown, the role is Drew’s for the taking. Randy Orton has been around the WWE since 2002; no one in the company today has been as consistently dominant as he has. The top heel for much of the John Cena era, Randy very much still has a lot of gas left in the tank. However, is Randy really going to be the guy to face Roman Reigns at Survivor Series? Given Drew’s appearance on SmackDown, it certainly doesn’t look like it. Whereas nothing is certain, be prepared for a big title change here.
