The New Champion!!
WWE RAW opens with a highlight from Drew McIntyre winning WWE Championship at WrestleMania 36. McIntyre heads to the ring and thanks the fans. He is surprised that the internet has been very positive. McIntyre then takes us to the replay of him defending his championship against Big Show just 20 minutes after that. This shows what kind of Champion he is going to be- “You want an opportunity at the title, you get an opportunity at the title.”
Andrade’s music hits as he comes out with Zelina Vega. Vega tells McIntyre that Andrade is the real champion of RAW and how he lost his title match at WrestleMania due to an injury. McIntyre reminds us of their match for NXT Championship from 2 years back. He tells Andrade that he took away 6 months of his career as he suffered a torn bicep. This leads to a champion vs champion match.
