What happened with Randy Orton, Drew McIntyre and Keith Lee on RAW?
Drew McIntyre kicked off the RAW after SummerSlam by cutting a promo about his title defense against Randy Orton. The Scottish Psychopath was prepared for his next challenge, but he also knew that he has some unfinished business with Orton.
Randy Orton attacked Drew McIntyre, and the brawl spilled over the backstage area. Orton ended the fight by connecting with two punts as the WWE officials checked on the downed WWE Champion.
Orton would later face Keith Lee in a singles match, which was the former NXT Champion's first bout on RAW. The contest ended in a DQ loss for Lee as McIntyre showed up and assaulted Orton.
Drew McIntyre was interviewed backstage after the angle, and Orton blindsided him yet again. The Legend Killer delivered one final punt kick that knocked the lights out of McIntyre.
Drew McIntyre has been written off WWE TV with a storyline injury, and as announced later, Randy Orton will take on Keith Lee at Payback.
Charly Caruso did add that McIntyre will receive further medical assessment at the local medical facility, and more updates on his storyline injury would be revealed sooner rather than later.
While Keith Lee and Randy Orton squaring up against each other at Payback sounds promising on paper, Drew McIntyre could ideally influence the outcome of the match similar to how he did on RAW.
McIntyre has been booked to be one of the toughest Superstars on the roster and overcoming three punt kicks could further highlight the babyface champion's endurance.Published 25 Aug 2020, 09:23 IST
