The anticipation for WWE’s SummerSlam is growing, and the company is fully invested in building up to the event following the Money in the Bank pay-per-view.

During Monday’s episode of WWE RAW, the focus remained on SummerSlam, with a promo segment featuring Drew McIntyre, who is expected to challenge GUNTHER for the Intercontinental Title at the event.

In the promo, McIntyre mentioned that he would be absent from next week’s show due to “company business.” This statement turned out to be true, as per, McIntyre has secured an outside booking through WWE and will be filming it next week.

With McIntyre’s absence in mind, here is the updated card for next week’s episode of Raw:

  • Brock Lesnar makes his return.
  • Viking Rules match: The Viking Raiders (Erik & Ivar) vs. Alpha Academy (Chad Gable & Otis).
  • Women’s Tag Team Championship: Liv Morgan & Raquel Rodriguez (champions) vs. Sonya Deville & Chelsea Green.
  • Matt Riddle vs. GUNTHER – Imperium’s Giovanni Vinci & Ludwig Kaiser are banned from ringside.

The addition of Brock Lesnar’s return adds further excitement to the upcoming episode, and fans can expect more surprises as WWE continues to build towards SummerSlam.

What are your predictions for Brock Lesnar’s return on next week’s episode of WWE Raw? How do you think his presence will impact the build-up to SummerSlam?
