In a surprising turn of events, WWE's landscape is set for a major shakeup as rumors swirl about Triple H's clandestine move to re-sign six-time WWE champion Drew McIntyre. This development comes as the wrestling world gears up for the much-anticipated Royal Rumble 2024, scheduled for January 27 at Tropicana Field in St.
Petersburg, Florida. Jey Uso, currently a prominent figure on Monday Night RAW, has been receiving overwhelming support from fans globally. This support, however, doesn't seem to be reflected in the company's recent promotional materials.
In an unexpected update, WWE has revised its banner for Monday Night RAW, notably excluding Uso, despite his rising popularity and the traction of his Yeet movement. The spotlight now turns to Drew McIntyre, known as "The Scottish Warrior." Speculation about his future with WWE had been rife, following reports of his contract nearing its end in 2024.
McIntyre's diminished presence in WWE programming and his own expressions of frustration on social media only fueled these rumors. However, the recent update to the Royal Rumble 2024 poster – which saw Charlotte Flair removed due to her hiatus and McIntyre added – suggests a resolution to his contractual uncertainties.
This shift hints at a potential showdown between McIntyre and Uso at the Royal Rumble. McIntyre is slated to face Seth Rollins at WWE RAW Day 1 on January 1, 2024. Given their history of intense encounters, Uso's involvement in this match could see Seth retaining his World Heavyweight Championship, setting the stage for a McIntyre-Uso clash at the Royal Rumble.
New Year's Knockout Excitement
Meanwhile, Triple H's announcement of the New Year's Knockout Week, with special editions of WWE Day 1 RAW and SmackDown's New Year's Revolution, has added to the excitement. Fans are eager to see how these events will unfold, especially with the heightened anticipation following McIntyre's inclusion in the Royal Rumble poster.
As we move closer to these marquee events, all eyes are on WWE to see how these developments will impact the dynamics of Monday Night RAW and the Royal Rumble. The wrestling community remains abuzz, eagerly awaiting the next moves from WWE's top brass and its stars.
