The WrestleMania picture is getting clearer day-by-day. Bobby Lashley won the WWE Championship last week, ushering in a new era. Lashley’s first challenger will have his hands full at WrestleMania, but these two Raw stars are more than capable. Drew McIntyre and Sheamus put on another war in their bid to reach the pinnacle of Raw.

In a backstage interview, Drew McIntyre criticized Bobby Lashley for taking the simple way out to the WWE Championship. McIntyre won the Royal Rumble, eliminating a plethora of superstars and then defeated Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania. Lashley’s win against The Miz was dominant, but it was a piece of cake.

Sheamus blindsided McIntyre during the interview, which led to Adam Pearce booking a No Disqualification match between the two.

McIntyre returned the favor and attacked the Celtic Warrior while he made his entrance. While their previous match was a hard-hitting battle between two tough men, this match had all of that but with weapons in the mix.

Kendo sticks, steel chairs, and ultimately steel steps entered the fray. McIntyre connected with a terrifying Future Shock DDT on a chair, but Sheamus kicked out at two. A Claymore Kick sent Sheamus tumbling to the floor, after which the match took a wild turn.

Both Sheamus and McIntyre ran at each other with steel steps in their hand. The impact of the collision sent both men reeling, but the Celtic Warrior got the worse of the exchange. The referee checked up on both superstars and determined they weren’t able to continue.

How will this feud end?

This rivalry has been budding since Sheamus showed up on Raw after the WWE Draft. He eyed the WWE Championship, and his greed led to him turning on his friend after the Royal Rumble. He tried his hardest inside the Elimination Chamber, but AJ Styles ended his hopes of being a champion.

Once McIntyre lost his title, he actively pursued Sheamus instead of the WWE Championship. The winner of this feud seems likely to head to WrestleMania and challenge Bobby Lashley, but how will this excellent, physical feud end?

With two matches in the bank, there is no harm in having a best of five or best of seven series between Sheamus and McIntyre. With McIntyre winning one match and the second one ending in a no contest, there is clearly scope for a few more matches.

Until this ends up with either Sheamus and McIntyre becoming No. 1 Contender for the WWE Championship, this feud should continue.
