After losing the WWE Championship to The Miz, Drew McIntyre returned to Raw as fiercer than ever, resuming the rivalry with Sheamus. During the episode of the red show that aired last night, the two were the protagonists of a violent NO Dq Match that left them somewhat battered.
It was they who showed the wounds of the battle on social media. The Irishman posted a photo of his back, covered in bruises, with the inscription: "They call it a No Contest", while the Scotsman did not wait and replied with a photo containing the following caption: "Well far from 'to be over."
Images that should be sent to rapper Soulja Boy, who recently ended up in the spotlight for considering WWE to be fake.
What's next for Drew McIntyre on RAW?
The match did not have a clear winner because the two knocked each other out with the steel steps, forcing the referees present to decree the no contest.
We'll see if Sheamus and Drew McIntyre clash again on Raw or in PPV, at Fastlane. WWE has recently filed a new trademark for the Scotsman, a sign that it still wants to focus strongly on it. We do not know, however, if at WrestleMania he will have the possibility of returning to the titled scene or not.
At the moment Raw's champion is Bobby Lashley and fans are clamoring for the match against Brock Lesnar. Considering that the most important PPV of the year will be broadcast on the Peacock streaming service and no longer on the Network, WWE will want to go to great lengths to create a high-level card.
Vince McMahon is no stranger to changing plans on the way and, apparently, that's exactly what he will do with this year's edition of WrestleMania. The WWE boss was infuriated after the main meetings of the event were leaked online before the official announcement.
And recently he has also decided to ban the practice of "leg slapping", a clear sign of the fact that in this period his mood is not the best. Drew McIntyre was presented as the clear-cut next contender in line for Bobby Lashley and the WWE Championship.
The speculation right now is that McIntyre will face Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania 37, and the idea is for him to get a coronation in front of fans. The All-Mighty is having the best run of his WWE career so far, and a rematch against The Scottish Warrior seems inevitable.
Tickets for WrestleMania 37 will soon be on sale, and although it will be at a limited capacity, it will be the first WWE show with fans in over a year. It's surreal to think of the fact that WWE has gone without a legitimate live audience (excluding the time when they used developmental talent in that place).
