Last week’s RAW had some really entertaining moments. We saw Drew McIntyre sharing a message of being COVID-19 positive. He was scheduled to face Randy Orton in the ring, but due to Drew’s unavailability, we saw Triple H making a return. They didn’t really have a fight but a brawl was witnessed between both. Apart from a brawl, the most exciting part was Alexa Bliss throwing a fireball on Randy‘s face.
Now, WWE has taken a step ahead post that fireball incident and introduced an interesting gimmick. As seen during the latest episode of Monday Night RAW, RKO was seen with wearing a mask and hiding his face burns. As of now, we can’t say for how long the mask will be a part of RKO’s character, but it has definitely added a fun element for fans.
Have a look at ‘masked’ Randy Orton:

At least they put a mask on Randy Orton following last weeks magic act. I was waiting for Bruce to have him come out as if nothing happened #WWERaw
