Drew McIntyre is back in possession of the top title on RAW after defeating Randy Orton for the WWE Championship. The shocker happened under one week before Survivor Series, an event that didn’t have any title defenses on the card but rather some non-title Champion vs Champion matchups. That night is in the history books of the company as now the prime champion needs more challengers in line so that he can prove himself to be a strong and daring champion.
While many options are available on Raw for the top contender’s position, it appears that WWE doesn’t plan to bring any fresh name to the table. They rather plan to resume a bygone rivalry from earlier this summer. It was noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE is protecting Bobby Lashley. The United States Champion is looking stronger than ever who could be the next-in-line for another title opportunity against Drew McIntyre.
Spoiler On Drew McIntyre’s Next Challenger For WWE Championship
It’s unclear at this point whether this push of Lashley will be kept intact just to elevate his own title but rumors are there that WWE could have more planned for the All-Mighty. It was also noted by the source on how WWE could be preparing Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre for another program with the WWE championship hanging in the balance. It was previously reported that Lashley’s Survivor Series match is likely to be a squash match against Sami Zayn which wasn’t the case, though.
Lashley did pick up the win but the Hurt Business members came into play. He was able to put away the Intercontinental Champion with the ominous Hurt Lock and lead Team Raw to victory. We’ll have to see is something is indeed in the pipeline for Drew McIntyre involving The Dominator. It’s a fact that WWE needs more challengers for the King Of Claymore Country and the CEO of the Hurt Business could be a perfect choice for the spot.
These two had a brief feud on Raw following Wrestlemania where Drew McIntyre successfully defended his WWE Title against Lashley at Backlash 2020 pay-per-view event. As of last night at Survivor Series, the Scottish Psychopath valiantly fought against Roman Reigns only to come up short after a low blow and outside interference from Jey Uso. But this loss certainly didn’t harm his strong status.
