Robert Roode made his comeback on WWE Monday Night Raw.
Roode was on the show to answer the Open Challenge launched by WWE champion Drew McIntyre. Roode’s return has been interpreted as being Dolph Ziggler’s idea. Early in the show, Ziggler was seen in the back talking to Adam Pearce with an idea of who might challenge McIntyre. Ziggler appeared later on the show to announce that Roode would be the person who would answer the Open Challenge.
Roode has been out of action for several months, believed to be due to problems with exiting Canada due to travel restrictions.
Roode was one of the names rumored to be returning to NXT, but his return to Raw could mean WWE has other plans for TakeOver: 31
