The Drew McIntyre Story

First, let’s rewind to WrestleMania 36. Drew McIntyre battled Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship. He beat ‘The Beast’ with his signature move, The Claymore. The crowd went wild, as McIntyre stood tall and strong inside the ring.

WWE putting McIntyre over Lesnar was huge.

Next, the rivalry between him and Randy Orton was one for the books. One of the interesting matches they battled in was The Ambulance Match at Clash of Champions. A significant chunk from the audience assumed McIntyre would not emerge victorious.

However, Superstars such as Edge and Ric Flair came to his aid, and he crushed Randy Orton.

Moving forward, McIntyre gave ‘The Viper’ a second chance at WWE Hell in a Cell. This was quite the match considering the cage was not enough to hold the Superstars. They climbed, they fought, and did everything possible to win the belt.

Unfortunately for McIntyre, Orton won.

At this point, everybody assumed Orton would fight Roman Reigns at Survivor Series. Drew McIntyre made it clear that would not happen and took over the WWE Championship right before the event.
