Drew was set to face off against Randy Orton on tonight’s edition of Monday Night Raw, and was challenged by Goldberg last week for a title match at Royal Rumble. He definitely won’t be on Raw tonight, but as the Royal Rumble event is just shy of three weeks away, it’s possible he is recovered and ready to go by then.
