The next challenger for Drew McIntyre will be decided tonight on WWE RAW.

Interestingly, it will wind up being one of McIntyre’s friends as the No. 1 contender bout will see Sheamus and Keith Lee go one-on-one. This is a natural match to make as the two tag partners had tensions raise and came to blows during a holiday street fight last week with Sheamus hitting a Brogue Kick to the disapproval of McIntyre.

Here’s how WWE.com describes the match:

Both Superstars were in Drew McIntyre’s corner last week for a Holiday Street Fight win against AJ Styles, The Miz & John Morrison. The two titans could only coexist for so long, as The Celtic Warrior crushed Lee with a Brogue Kick following earlier miscommunications in the match. Now the two heavyweights will settle their differences in a high-stakes showdown.

Who will head into the new year with a WWE Title opportunity in tow?

Catch the battle between Lee & Sheamus on Monday Night Raw at 8/7 C on the USA Network.
