It was McIntyre’s last shot at the WWE Championship, as the WWE draft will come into effect from this Friday onwards. Last week marked the last night of Drew McIntyre on the WWE Raw roster, at least for this year. The former WWE champion got drafted to the blue brand of WWE during the 2021 WWE Draft.

In his tweet, McIntyre also praised Big E and asked him to take care of the title until they cross paths once again. The WWE superstar will now look to claim his dominance in the blue brand of WWE.

After that, McIntyre defended his champion against various WWE superstars, which included many big names. Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, Big Show, Bobby Lashley, Dolph Ziggler, and Robert Roode challenged McIntyre for the title. But all of them were unsuccessful.

However, at the Hell in a Cell 2020 PPV, McIntyre’s first title reign as the WWE Champion ended following his defeat to Orton. That also marked McIntyre’s first loss in 2020.

But McIntyre got his championship back after he defeated Randy Orton in a no disqualification match on Raw. McIntyre’s second reign was kind of similar to his first reign, where he kept his title against top WWE superstars like AJ Styles, Keith Lee, and The Miz. This time McIntyre also defeated the WWE legend Goldberg.

But unfortunately for McIntyre, The Miz cashed in his Money in the Bank contract after his match at the Elimination Chamber 2021 PPV to put an end to McIntyre’s second title reign. Now, with McIntyre getting drafted to SmackDown, it will be interesting to see if he can win the WWE Universal Championship for the first time in his career.
