After trying to find a number one contender in a Drew McIntyre vs. Kofi Kingston singles match last week ended in Bobby Lashley crashing the party, Adam Pearce booked the same match for this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw. This time, however, Lashley was barred from getting involved in any way.
Naturally, then, the two were allowed to have a straight up wrestling match and, as expected, McIntyre emerged victorious in that match. The finish was a pretty damn cool Claymore on Kingston as he was coming off the top rope:
This sets up McIntyre for yet another match against Lashley for the WWE championship at the upcoming Hell in a Cell pay-per-view (PPV) scheduled for Sun., June 20, 2021, at the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida.
The updated Hell in a Cell match card and lineup:
- Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Drew McIntyre (WWE championship)
- Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair (Raw women’s championship)
