• Backstage News On Drew McIntyre’s Future
On January 27, 2020, on the RAW after Royal Rumble, Drew McIntyre announced that he will challenge Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 36.
Ever since then, McIntyre has somehow been a part of the WWE Title picture.
Last night at Hell In A Cell 2021, he failed to become a 3-time WWE Champion, and now he can’t challenge Bobby Lashley for the WWE Title again as long as Lashley is the champion (according to the stipulation of the match).
We have been told that there have been talks of moving McIntyre to SmackDown during the Draft, which is scheduled to take place after SummerSlam.
This move will most likely lead to a program between Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre for the Universal Championship.
Speaking of the Draft, it will be divided into two nights. Night 1 will take place on the August 30th edition of RAW and Night 2 will take place on the September 3rd edition of SmackDown.
Monday Night RAW on August 30 will take place at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and Friday Night SmackDown on September 3 will take place at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.
Last year, the WWE Draft took place in October. No Superstar Shakeup took place last year.
2019 featured both the Draft and Superstar Shakeup.
