WWE has announced Kofi Kingston vs. Drew McIntyre for next week’s episode of Monday Night Raw.
At the start of this week’s episode of Raw, Kingston stated his case on why he deserves to be the next person to challenge Bobby Lashley for the title. Adam Pearce then announced that Kingston would face Drew McIntyre this week to determine the number 1 contender. The match ended with a no contest because of MVP and Lashley attacking both competitors.
On next week’s show, the stipulation for Kingston vs. McIntyre will be that Lashley or MVP cannot interfere. If that happens then Lashley will be suspended for 90 days.
"If EITHER of you interfere in @TrueKofi vs. @DMcIntyreWWE next week or even go to ringside… you'll be suspended for 9️⃣0️⃣ days. WITHOUT PAY."@ScrapDaddyAP is not afraid to lay down the law and make things fair.#WWERaw pic.twitter.com/HlnU1NvZf1
