Despite being a decorated Superstar and a former champion himself, Kofi Kingston paled in size to Drew. McIntyre had a height and weight advantage and dominated Kofi for most of the match.

But Drew’s comment on Kofi being unable to beat Brock Lesnar added much-needed fuel to Kofi’s fire.

We all remember the debut episode of SmackDown on Fox, where Kofi suffered a humiliating loss to Brock Lesnar. Despite having a great run with the belt, beating the likes of Randy Orton, Kevin Owens, Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler and Samoa Joe, Kofi lost to Brock in nine seconds.

Drew beat Brock dominantly at WrestleMania 36, cementing his legacy as WWE’s true ‘Chosen One’. On Raw, McIntyre did not hesitate to roast Kofi in his own despair, saying, “I slayed the Beast Brock Lesnar, unlike Kofi.”

While McIntyre boasted of his victory over Brock Lesnar a year ago, Kofi relied on his shocking win over current WWE Champion Bobby Lashley.

Despite his confidence, McIntyre kicked Kofi out of the air with the Claymore and will settle his feud with Bobby Lashley at Hell in a Cell. As for Kofi, this series against Drew McIntyre proved he’s still a valuable singles performer.

The rivalry between Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley started off hot but has cooled down significantly. One can’t assign blame to either superstar, as they’ve both looked strong over the past weeks. Since WrestleMania, Lashley has shown repeatedly that he has McIntyre’s number.

At Hell in a Cell, Lashley will enter his first match inside the dangerous structure. The commentators are obviously going to use this and give McIntyre the advantage since he’s been inside the Cell before. However, his first and only appearance led to his first WWE title reign ending at the hands of Randy Orton.

Will the All Mighty prevail in his debut Hell in a Cell match, or will Drew McIntyre finally reclaim the title he lost in February? Result aside, get ready for an absolute war on June 20th.
