Drew McIntyre defeated Randy Orton to win the WWE Championship on Monday Night Raw

This week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw closed out with Drew McIntyre getting his WWE Championship rematch against Randy Orton. McIntyre walked out to the ring with a sword and kit that was given to him earlier by his good friend Sheamus.

Early in the match, Orton had enough and he tried to walk out of the match but Adam Pearce announced that there will be a finish and the match could not end via count out or disqualification.

In the final minutes of the match, McIntyre seemed to have things in hand and he was on his way to reclaiming the title. At one point, Orton was pushed through a table that was set up earlier at ringside but Orton turned things around with a powerslam in the ring and a draping DDT off the announcer’s table and another DDT off the ropes.

McIntyre then surprised Orton with the Claymore and he pinned him to reclaim the title. It will be McIntyre vs. Roman Reigns on Sunday at the Survivor Series in a champion vs. champion match. This is a change from last week because Orton was originally booked to retain the title.
