Last week, WWE announced SummerSlam 2020 will no longer take place at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. The news had been expected for some time, and while the company is yet to announce a new location, the first two matches on the pay-per-view were revealed last night.
To kick-off Monday Night Raw, Randy Orton sauntered to the ring and cut a promo in which he said The Rock and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin could not hold a candle to what he has achieved in his WWE career. Despite everything he has accomplished, however, Orton said something was missing and that was the WWE Championship. The Apex Predator then challenged Drew McIntyre to a match at SummerSlam 2020.
Orton didn't have to wait long for an answer as The Scottish Psychopath accepted the challenge ahead of his main event match against Dolph Ziggler.
The Raw Tag Team Championship match was also finalised after Angel Garza and Andrade faced off against The Viking Raiders and Ricochet & Cedric Alexander in a number one contender's bout. All three teams battled back and forth but the beginning of the finish came after Ivar took out his tag team partner, Ricochet, and Cedric Alexander after he landed a Senton to the outside. This allowed El Idolo to roll Cedric into the centre of the ring unopposed and Garza ended the match with the Wing Clipper moments later.
Zelina Vega's clients will now face The Street Profits at The Biggest Party Of The Summer for the Raw Tag Team Championship.
