Blue brand royalty is coming to Monday Night RAW this coming week to do battle with the WWE Champion.

WWE confirmed on their official website on Saturday that "The Scottish Psychopath" Drew McIntyre will be going one-on-one against "King" Baron Corbin this coming Monday night, as the SmackDown Superstar makes the trip over to Monday Night RAW.

WWE.com released the following announcement:

WWE Champion Drew McIntyre battles SmackDown’s King Corbin this Monday on Raw

As part of the brand-to-brand invitational, The King of The Ring is coming to Raw to make an example of Drew McIntyre.

King Corbin announced his intentions of putting the WWE Champion in his place last Monday, while McIntyre urged the WWE Universe to tune in, as he has a Claymore fit for a king.

WWE is also promoting Asuka starting "a new era" on RAW this week, as she officially begins her reign as the new RAW Women's Champion after the former title-holder, "The Man" Becky Lynch, vacated the title to the 2020 Mrs. Money In The Bank on this past Monday night's show.

Additionally, the official cable television guide preview sent out for Monday's show is hyping Edge's reaction to the wrestling match challenge laid out to him by former friend and tag-team partner turned bitter rival Randy Orton.

"The Empress of Tomorrow ushers in a new era, and the Rated-R Superstar faces an imposing challenge from The Viper," reads the cable guide preview for the 5/18/2020 episode of WWE Monday Night RAW.
