We continue to discuss what happened six days ago with some things that happened in the red show that are not fully understood by the insiders and in general by the WWE Universe. We saw that last Monday WWE Champion challenger Drew McIntyre (he will challenge Bobby Lashley at Backlash) faced former members of Retribution T-Bar and Mace in a Handicap Match: despite the strength of The Scottish Psychopath, the two giants seemed to have the best and at one point seemed to dominate.
The match ended in disqualification with the two continuing to attack Drew McIntyre. At a certain point, Braun Strowman came to the rescue of the Brit and they trained and in the end, a Tag Team Match was born. Vince Russo has criticized WWE for pairing Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman on Monday Night RAW.
Latest update on Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman
There are many in the WWE Universe who wonder why Braun Strowman came to the rescue of Drew McIntyre, a situation that few expected and that according to some made little sense.
During the last episode of Legion of Raw on Sportkeeda, former Raw creative team member Vince Russo tried to explain what was happening, criticizing this feud. Here are his words: "This is one of their usual ways to fill the 3 hours of the show.
You all know the formula, it starts with a 2 vs 1, you have 30 minutes and to create a long show you have another wrestler arrive and extend it. That's the only reason Braun arrived." In fact, the WWE Universe was skeptical that The Monster Among Men had no real motivation to help Drew McIntyre either because he is his friend or because of an alleged rivalry against T-Bar and Mace but on the contrary.
recently we saw the two compete with Randy Orton in the Triple Threat Match to decree Bobby Lashley's challenger at Wrestlemania Backlash. It remains to be seen if the two big men and former rivals will become allies going forward on RAW, or if this new tag team is just a one-off.
McIntyre defeated Randy Orton and Braun Strowman to become the number one contender to face Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania Backlash. WWE may be building a long-term storyline with Strowman and Drew McIntyre to set up a feud between the two men after McIntyre is done with Lashley at WrestleMania Backlash.
