Drew McIntyre turned heel and joined the Judgment Day’s team for WarGames at Survivor Series. That gave the heels five members for their team at Survivor Series for WarGames, and Adam Pearce gave the babyfaces until the end of RAW’s first hour to pick a 5th team member.
Ringside News will have complete coverage of WWE RAW this week. The November 20th episode should be quite a show, and they already had plenty announced.
Many believed that Randy Orton will team up with Seth Rollins, Sami Zayn, Jey Uso, and Cody Rhodes at Survivor Series in the Men’s WarGames Match. It’s expected that the 5th babyface team member for WarGames will be revealed before Survivor Series.
After Drew McIntyre’s heel turn on Monday’s Raw, Cody Rhodes hinted at Randy Orton’s imminent return. Orton has been absent from WWE since May of the previous year due to fusion back surgery.
The babyface team was given until the end of the night to figure out their 5th team member, or Pearce threatened to do it himself. When the time came, they finally made the big announcement.
Cody Rhodes was able to get someone to pick up the call, but they waited to reveal the name. After Drew McIntyre beat Jey Uso to secure the advantage for the heel team at WarGames, it looked like the heels were going to destroy Jey Uso.
Cody Rhodes ran down for the save, and he ran the heels off with a steel chair in hand. Sami Zayn was there to help as well. Soon, it was the babyface WarGames team in the ring as the heels watched from the entrance ramp.
Cody Rhodes said that he is glad that the heels won the advantage, because they have the 5th member already, “someone I have Legacy with,” and “you’re looking at us like we’re prey, but we have the Apex Predator.” Then they announced that Randy Orton is coming back at Survivor Series to join the WarGames match.
As we previously reported, November 20th’s RAW took place in the same arena where Orton had his last match in 2022. This marks exactly 18 months since Randy Orton’s last appearance on WWE television. These factors add anticipation to Orton’s comeback.
Now, the babyface team is full for Survivor Series. We will have to see how Randy Orton does after taking so much time off. You can check out the updates card below.
