WWE adds Finn Balor vs. Drew McIntyre to tonight's Raw

Another match has been added to the lineup for tonight's Raw.

WWE announced on Twitter this afternoon that Finn Balor will face Drew McIntyre on the show: "BREAKING: It'll be @FinnBalor vs. @DMcIntyreWWE as they go head-to-head TONIGHT on #RAW!"

Both were involved in a triple threat match with Roman Reigns on last Monday's Raw, which Reigns won to advance to tonight's number one contender's match against Bobby Lashley. McIntyre hit Balor with a Claymore kick before Reigns gave McIntyre a Superman punch and speared Balor for the win. Before the finish, McIntyre also pulled Balor out of the ring when he was pinning Reigns after hitting the Coup de Grace.

Lashley defeated Elias and Seth Rollins in a triple threat last week for the other spot in the number one contender's match, which will decide Brock Lesnar's Universal Championship challenger for SummerSlam.

In addition to Reigns vs. Lashley and Balor vs. McIntyre, Stephanie McMahon making a "historic announcement" and The B-Team (Curtis Axel & Bo Dallas) defending their Tag Team titles against Matt Hardy & Bray Wyatt are also advertised for tonight's Raw. The show is taking place at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio.
