Randy Orton may have won the Greatest Wrestling Match Ever at Backlash but that wasn’t the last of his story with Edge. The rivalry between the two is far from over that was made clear during Edge’s very last promo on RAW following the pay-per-view match. He would return with vengeance in mind whereas The Viper, in the meantime, looks forward to feud with Big Show at Extreme Rules.
They booked the WWE Championship match for the show as well where Drew McIntyre defends against Dolph Ziggler. It is likely that McIntyre will retain in a dominant fashion despite Ziggler not disclosing the stipulation of the match. Thereafter, he will probably enter in a three-way championship feud that could also involve Randy Orton and the returning Edge.
Wrestling News reports the idea is pretty clear at this point where Randy Orton will soon enter WWE Title picture, at some point. This could happen at SummerSlam where he could also become the champion. The switch in the title will help Edge to return and enter the World Title picture. He can also win back the gold after almost a decade. But in the end, McIntyre will get back the title in front of real fans.
The idea is that the Scottish Psychopath has never got his true WrestleMania moment as the show of shows went down without the fans. So he deserves a crowning moment that could end up happening at either next year’s Royal Rumble or WrestleMania 37. McIntyre might face Edge or Randy Orton, in that case, to win back the title. Here’s more from what the source has to offer,
“An idea was pitched to have Orton win the title and then defend against Edge at the Royal Rumble or WrestleMania and McIntyre could win the title again at a later date to get his true crowning moment with fans in attendance.”
At this point, it’s hard to assume in which direction the WWE Championship picture might move forward. WrestleMania plans are not solid right now, because they don’t even know as the venue itself isn’t confirm to host the event. Los Angeles authority is yet to sanction massive gatherings in the wake of coronavirus pandemic which might force WWE to reschedule the show.
But the idea of having Edge vs Drew McIntyre or Randy Orton vs Drew McIntyre or even have both these three in a triple threat is certainly exciting for the fans. This is a perfect main event caliber match that a lot of people would pay to see no matter where WWE hosts the show.
