Randy Orton response, Alexa Bliss vs. Asuka announced for Raw next week


Although Randy Orton was shot in the face with a fireball just days ago on Monday Night Raw, WWE has announced he will be back for next week’s episode to respond to being attacked by Alexa Bliss.

Orton suffered what WWE called “minor burns to the face” in the attack so it will be interesting to see how he looks come next Monday night.

As for Bliss, not only is she not being reprimanded in any way, she’s actually moving on to a match against the current Raw Women’s Champion, Asuka. The match won’t be for that title, of course, but she’s getting a match with the champ nonetheless.

Who knows what that could turn into.

At the very least, it gives her something to do beyond waiting around and doing Bray Wyatt’s bidding while he’s out dealing with the fact that he was burnt to a crisp by Orton at the last pay-per-view.

See you Monday!
