Last night on Raw, Bobby Lashley joined forces with MVP and his first order of business was to get Lashley his first World Championship in more than a decade. The Almighty chose MVP as his manager after the former star stated that he could take Lashley to places that his wife Lana couldn’t and this was proved as part of last night’s main event.
Lashley and MVP watched over Drew McIntyre’s match against King Corbin where they looked to cause a distraction, but it wasn’t enough to knock McIntyre off form since he defeated The King with a Claymore and looked prepared to take on the challenge of Lashley.
The match wasn’t officially announced last night on Raw, but it was made clear that Lashley would be McIntyre’s next challenger. The company recently officially announced the match on their Twitter account, which means that at present there are just two matches official for Backlash, including Edge vs Randy Orton.
Despite the current panic around the world, WWE has managed to maintain a “business as usual” approach when it comes to all of their shows even though there is no audience in attendance and the company has had to adhere to a lot of new rules.
Ahead of last night’s Raw, Women’s Tag Team Champion Alexa Bliss spoke to NDTV‘s Rohit Khilnani about how the company was managing to stay on top of the virus.
“Everyone at WWE is being super careful, super cautious, and super safe. Before we go on into the Performance Center, we have to have our temperatures checked, we have to get evaluated by a doctor. We have to sign a survey that says we haven’t traveled, we haven’t gone anywhere, that we don’t have any symptoms. We’re all wearing masks, we’re practicing social distancing. Everything is being cleaned to a medical-grade standard and keeping everyone safe is the main priority right now.”
