Roman Reigns withstood yet another assault by Brock Lesnar on SummerSlam, the biggest pay-per-view of the summer, by reiterating that he is the leader of WWE. Although 'The Beast Incarnate' put him to the test and came to demolish the ring with a tractor, the former Shield member took home the victory and sent the crowd into raptures.
Roman will be called to face Drew McIntyre at Clash at the Castle, the highly anticipated event that will take place in the UK in early September. The Scottish superstar defeated Sheamus at SmackDown last week, making him the new number one contender for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
Although the Scottish Warrior has won several matches over the past few months, he has remedied some fairly bloody defeats against Big E and Bobby Lashley in 2021. In a recent interview with Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo criticized the Stamford federation for the way he handled McIntyre.
Backstage news on Drew McIntyre
“WWE has made a number of very serious mistakes in the management of Drew McIntyre. It won't be easy to make him a credible opponent for Roman Reigns. As I have said a thousand times before, stories are very important in wrestling.
When you build solid and credible stories, there is no need to make havoc in the ring. There are always creative ways to put on a show” - said Russo. Vince also threw a jab at Goldberg: “I've always been a huge Beatles fan.
They are tattooed on my body permanently and will stay in my heart forever. At the same time, I find it horrifying that Paul McCartney continues to tour at 80. I do nothing but wonder what's on his mind and why no one is suggesting that he stop.
Being the last thing I will see of him, it will remain with me. I don't know if Paul needs the money, but he certainly is doing tremendous damage to his legacy. The same goes for Goldberg”. WWE is trying to regroup after Vince McMahon's sensational farewell.
Noam Dar spoke about Drew McIntyre's current run in WWE and said he could win the match against Roman Reigns. "I feel like in the past several years Drew McIntyre has, you know, been on the top of the company, especially during the lockdown. Done an amazing job as champion and really helped WWE through that period. I think he is in his prime right now."
