During the Monday Night RAW broadcasts through the USA Network, it has been confirmed that Drew McIntyre will defend the WWE Championship against Goldberg at Royal Rumble 2021, the company’s next pay-per-view.
Despite being unable to attend the ThunderDome due to his medical leave from COVID-19, Drew McIntyre posted a new video to respond to the challenge imposed by Bill Goldberg last week. After showing respect to the member of the Hall of Fame, the owner of the Claymore Kick clarified that the prestige of the WWE Championship is far from that of his career. Noting that it is Goldberg who needs a lesson in humility, McIntyre accepted the challenge and made the fight official for the next big event of the company.
After an intense confrontation
With Keith Lee last week, Drew McIntyre received an unexpected visit in the ring from Goldberg, who berated him for not having respect for the legends of the company. The WWE Hall of Fame member challenged McIntyre for the WWE Championship. The Scotsman clarified that getting into the ring with the veteran fighter would be similar to fighting with his elderly father, which sparked a brief physical exchange that ended the week’s broadcasts.
WWE Royal Rumble will take place on January 31, 2021, from Tropicana Field in Saint Petersburg, Florida. Fans will be able to watch this event via pay-per-view and through WWE Network, as well as in the virtual audience “ThunderDome” mode. Next, the billboard of the event to date
