Through the Braveheart face paint, fans could make out that Drew McIntyre was emotional after beating Sheamus. Their rivalry was the highlight of Monday Night Raw since the Celtic Warrior betrayed his best friend. The greed for the WWE Championship drove Sheamus into breaking his friendship.

At Fastlane, the two clashed in the third singles match of 2021. While McIntyre won the first one, the second match ended in a disappointing no contest.

Both superstars rammed into each other with steel steps, rendering them incapable to continue. To put an end to their fighting, WWE booked them to face off at Fastlane.

Both Superstars gave each other their 100 percent. Thet brawled into the area with the LED screens, where McIntyre shoved Sheamus through the LED board, leading to a huge explosion. Sheamus retaliated with a White Noise through the announcer’s table but fell victim to the patented Claymore Kick.

Although battle-tested and losing seventy-five percent of his face paint, McIntyre held himself together and celebrated his big win. With Sheamus out of his way, he can clearly focus on the WWE Championship at WrestleMania.

At WrestleMania, Drew McIntyre finally meets an opponent who can fold him like a pretzel and toss him around the ring. Since facing Roman Reigns at WrestleMania, Drew hasn’t really had a real challenge. But losing the WWE Championship and now challenging for it at WrestleMania brings him in Bobby Lashley’s point of view.

Lashley and McIntyre faced off at Backlash in 2020, where the former WWE Champion beat Lashley after a distraction from Lana. Now with MVP by his side instead of Lana, the All Mighty has a better chance of retaining his championship.

Irrespective of the result, one can fully expect Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre to provide us with a hard-hitting, physical and entertaining bout, worthy of the Grandest Stage of them All.
