During this pandemic period, many of the Worldwide Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Superstars took a break, except as Roman Reigns, who was absent for several months or as Sami Zayn, who was gone as long, at least a few weeks or so until a few days, mainly due to the fact that at the first symptom of the virus' appearance that could be linked to the famous pandemic virus, Worldwide Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) blocked the appearances of athletes.
After the numerous absences that also affected Clash of Champions, with Shayna Baszler, Nia Jax and Nikki Cross who were removed at the last second from the event card, it is fresh news of tonight that sees a welcome return, that of Robert Roode, who after spending several months away from the rings of the McMahon-owned company, is finally back on-screen, to even go to battle with WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.
Just during the start of the last episode of the company's red flag show, Drew McIntyre showed up in the ring with all his Clash of Champions "helpers", with McIntyre who then wanted to thank Christian, Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels and Big Show for the great help received in the titled match against The Viper.
Robert Roode returns to Raw and immediately challenges the champion for the WWE title
Furthermore, during the promo held by the champion, Drew wanted to set up an open challenge valid for his title, with the only condition that he wanted to give the champion, which was that his challenger had never had a title match since he was Worldwide Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Champion.
Although the choice could fall on very few people in the Raw main event area, several names could be used by the Worldwide Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), which eventually took the ball by bringing Robert Roode back on-screen, who last June had been drafted together with Dolph Ziggler in Raw, but who in the end never returned to appear in the red show ring, due to the problems that he and many other Canadian athletes encountered at customs to enter the USA and then go to work for Orlando.
WWE also welcomed Robert Roode back into its fold with a tweet that said, "WHAT A GLORIOUS NIGHT! @RealRobertRoode is BACK on #WWERaw to challenge @DMcIntyreWWE for the #WWEChampionship!"
