It’s official! Drew McIntyre will defend the WWE Championship at SummerSlam against Randy Orton.
Tonight’s edition of Raw began with Orton saying he realized this morning that something was missing, which was the WWE Championship. He then challenged Drew McIntyre to a match at SummerSlam for the title.
Later in the show, before McIntyre faced-off against Dolph Ziggler, the champ accepted the challenge. After he defeated Ziggler in the match, Orton hit him with an RKO out of nowhere and held the title over McIntyre’s fallen body.
As we previously reported, WWE has confirmed SummerSlam will not be taking place in Boston as planned prior to the pandemic. They have not yet confirmed where it will be taking place instead.
Watch Orton’s challenge below.
