WWE Monday Night RAW Results: Brock Lesnar Responds to Drew McIntyre's Attack

WrestleMania 36 is less than two weeks away and although the world is dealing with a growing pandemic the WWE continues to build to its myriad of matches with tonight's Monday Night RAW.

Not much is known about the March 23 episode of Monday Night RAW. WWE has only confirmed that Brock Lesnar and Randy Orton will be on tonight's show to address their respective WrestleMania feuds.

Lesnar has been bested by Drew McIntyre the last few weeks, but how will Brock and his advocate Paul Heyman respond to this current string of momentum from the 2020 Men's Royal Rumble winner?

Edge appeared on last week's show to challenge Randy Orton at WrestleMania 36 in a Last Man Standing match. Will Orton accept his former friend's challenge or does he have something else planned?

Becky Lynch has challenger Shayna Baszler breathing down her neck to win the RAW Women's Championship at WrestleMania, but is Lynch taking the challenger seriously? Becky is confident after defeating Ronda Rousey at last year's WrestleMania, but is "The Man" getting overconfident?

The Undertaker made The OC look like chumps last week during his contract signing with AJ Styles and the dispatching of Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. Styles is expected to address his WrestleMania opponent tonight.

Two more matches for WrestleMania 36 were announced on Monday.

Aleister Black will take on Bobby Lashley for the first time in the WWE. Tonight could be the night where the build to that match begins.

The other match is a RAW Tag Team Championship match between The Street Profits, and Andrade and Angel Garza. The Street Profits are looking to successfully defend their titles again while Andrade looks to be a dual champion—he already holds the US Championship.

Garza and Andrade have run afoul of both Humberto Carrillo and Rey Mysterio in recent weeks, but will that come into effect at WrestleMania, and will we see that build tonight?

Here's everything that happened on the March 23 episode of Monday Night RAW.
