WWE Champion Drew McIntyre has transformed into the strongest babyface name of the Raw roster who is willing to face anyone standing in his path. He recently had a sat down with Sports Matters TV to discuss the early days of his wrestling career with WWE where he used to travel around with Sheamus.
These two belong to the United Kingdom region. Whereas Drew McIntyre is billed from Britain, Sheamus is an Irish man. While speaking on his journey, McIntyre also noted on going a long way back with Jinder Mahal and having a potential feud with him over the WWE Championship. For those who don’t remember, these two have been buddies during 3MB days.
Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre have been former members of the 3MB stable alongside Heath Slater who has said before that he would love to see a feud between the rest of his stablemates. McIntyre has also teased that fans will get to see “a whole new” Mahal in the future.
Speaking of the world title feud, McIntyre stated that it should have a proper build-up as they have a lot of backstories that can be played off of.
“He was there the whole time, both getting fired and me trying to go out there in the independents to make my name. He went off, kind of gave up [and] stopped working out. He turned his life around, went back to WWE and became WWE Champion before me.
It wasn’t exactly universally praised as when I won the WWE Championship, so there’s so many possible layers to this story that the world has seen on television and have not seen. It could make for one of the most memorable feuds of all time. There’s so much material.” (courtesy wrestlingINC.com)
WWE apparently had the feud planned between the two friends on Raw over the championship. WrestleTalk has reported that Jinder Mahal was supposed to get a ‘significant push’ soon, as the Raw Executive Director of, Paul Heyman, wanted him to feud with WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. But that feud can’t be happening anytime soon as Mahal is out of action, again.
The Modern-Day Maharaja underwent another knee surgery in Birmingham, Alabama as informed by him on Instagram. He would be out of action for months to follow and thus the chances of having him in a title feud against Drew McIntyre has been wiped out.
Following his WWE comeback in April, Mahal turned babyface and was set to receive a push again to appeal to WWE’s Indian fanbase. But that won’t be happening, now.
