The WWE are building to one of the biggest shows of the year, as the Royal Rumble gets closer and closer. There was a huge match set last week, as it was revealed that Drew McIntyre would be defending his WWE Championship against the returning Goldberg in the main event.
Fans are already hoping that the WWE have learned their lesson from the year prior when Goldberg defeated The Fiend in the build up to WrestleMania. However, there will be a more immediate challenge for McIntyre this evening, as he will square off against a foe that has become a common thorn in his side.
WWE Raw: McIntyre vs Orton To Main Event
Championship, and there will be a first matchup between the pair at the start of 2021 on Raw this evening. Orton is still involved in a programme with The Fiend, but the enigmatic character hasn’t been seen for a number of weeks now after Orton set him on fire. Tonight could be the night when we finally see Wyatt return with a vengeance, as it looks extremely unlikely that there will be a clean finish in this match.
WWE Raw: New Challengers For Women’s Tag Team Titles
One of the most contentious segments on Legends Night on Raw last week was Charlotte Flair turning her back on her father Ric Flair. The two-time WWE Hall of Famer cost Charlotte the match after tripping her while at ringside. His actions meant that Peyton Royce and Lacey Evans were able to get the win over the reigning champions, and that could lead to the winning team getting a title opportunity in the near future.
WWE Raw: Riddle Continues Hunt For WWE Gold
Riddle claimed one of the biggest wins of his early WWE career last week, as he beat US champion Bobby Lashley. It looks likely that the former NXT star will get a title opportunity in the near future, and that could potentially happen before the huge PPV at the end of the month. It’s unlikely that Riddle will be winning the gold as The Hurt Business have been dominating on Raw and are one of the very few bright sparks. However, it will be an interesting matchup to see.
