Drew McIntyre called out MVP to kick off WWE RAW
RAW kicked off with Drew McIntyre coming down to the ring to start the show. McIntyre said he overcame two top Superstars in Strowman and Orton last week to earn his title shot at WrestleMania Backlash. The Scotsman then addressed T-BAR and MACE. He said he knew MVP was behind the attacks. MVP's music hit at this point and he made his way out.
MVP told Drew that he needed to start expecting the unexpected. McIntyre asked the former US Champion if he expected him to believe that he didn't have a part to play in last week's assault.
MVP replied that he only worked for Bobby Lashley before pointing out the recent downsizing of The Hurt Business.
As Drew left the ring and approached the former US Champion, he was blindsided by T-BAR and MACE again. The former RETRIBUTION members dragged Drew McIntyre into the ring and hit a double chokeslam.
