As soon as WWE made this announcement, The Legend Killer snapped and grabbed Adam Pearce by the collar and asked the WWE management to go to hell.

While Orton is not too pleased with the news, the WWE Universe did not expect the Orton-McIntyre storyline to move forward any differently.

Drew McIntyre clarified that he will continue to attack The Viper at every chance he gets until the WWE Championship title is his again.

The Drew McIntyre-Randy Orton rivalry

Drew McIntyre secured the title from Randy Orton at WWE Clash of Champions 2020. This point marked the beginning of a great rivalry with brilliant segments.

Both Superstars delivered promos that got the WWE fans excited for the final feud.

Randy Orton and Drew McIntyre clashed again at Hell in a Cell. After a brutal fight, Orton secured the title, marking his 14th title reign.

Now, while Orton and McIntyre have their eyes on the title, The Fiend and The Miz are stepping up too. The latter two have expressed their desire to challenge for the title.

WWE has scheduled the Viper to clash with Roman Reigns, the WWE Universal Champion, at Survivor Series 2020 in a Champion vs. Champion battle.

If Drew McIntyre takes the WWE title from Randy Orton in their next match, he will replace Orton for the champion vs. champion segment at Survivor Series 2020.

The reason this is a possibility is due to the long awaited dream match between Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns.

The WWE fans want to witness The Scottish Psychopath and The Tribal Chief clash inside the ring. There is no better way for the company to capitalize on this than by putting them against each other as champions of their respective brands.

Previously, Triple H had claimed that he does not want to see this match soon. This match has the potential of reeling in a vast audience. He compared it to the Hulk Hogan-Ric Flair match.

However, if WWE is planning to make McIntyre win at the upcoming match, it will receive serious backlash from Orton’s fans.
