This SummerSlam go-home edition of Raw from Madison Square Garden featured Drew McIntyre wrestling Theory in a singles match where McIntyre went over via disqualification after he was attacked by the Brawling Brutes.
In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported an in-ring promo before this match that was cut because the opening segment with Reigns went long as he was hyping his last man standing match against Brock Lesnar.
Also, because of the time change, the match had to be called in the ring rather than preplanned.
WWE has started to let top guys improvise more in their matches as they can call spots in the ring instead of planning everything out in advance. This was done in the McIntyre vs. Sheamus match on SmackDown last Friday night.
McIntyre will challenge for Reigns’ Undisputed WWE Universal Title at the September Clash at the Castle event.
