With the victory over Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36, Drew McIntyre not only captured the Worldwide Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Championship title but probably peaked within the WWE. In these first weeks as a champion, McIntyre has impressed both the fans and the insiders for his attitude as a consummate champion and as a real leader of the red roster, so much so that some rumors begin to turn about his future.
According to what 'WrestleTalk' reports, the management of the company owned by Vince McMahon wants to make Drew a true Superstar: we hope to see him on the top or in any case in a titled orbit for some time. His reign, in other words, will not be transitional like those of Jinder Mahal, Kofi Kingston or Finn Balor, but there is a lot of confidence around the Scottish wrestler, born in Ayr.
In the next Pay-Per-View (PPV), the WWE Champion will have to defend the title from Bobby Lashley's attack, but surely Worldwide Wrestling Entertainment has great future plans and Drew McIntyre is absolutely part of these.
The Scottish returned to WWE in April 2017 and joined the developmental brand NXT, where he won the NXT Championship at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III, becoming the first man to win the championship in his TakeOver in-ring debut and the first WWE wrestler to hold it after having previously won a championship on the main roster.
Upon returning to WWE's main roster in 2018, he won the Raw Tag Team Championship with Dolph Ziggler, became the winner of the 2020 men's Royal Rumble match, and defeated Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 36, while also becoming the thirty-first Triple Crown champion in the process.
