WWE had to change up a lot of plans when Drew McIntyre tested positive for COVID-19. Now The Game is coming back to the red brand to kick off tonight’s show.
The company announced that Triple H will return to Raw this week. It was not noted what he will do or say.
We previously noted that WWE needed to figure out a new main event for tonight’s show. Randy Orton needs an opponent as WWE plans to keep The Viper in the main event match.
WWE RAW will have big competition with the College Football Championship Game. The Ohio State Buckeyes and Alabama Clemson Tide will be going to war on the gridiron. That game will take a lot of eyeballs off WWE this week, something the company wants to avoid.
We will continue monitoring this ongoing story as WWE figures out how they are building toward January 31st’s Royal Rumble event.
