Drew McIntyre will face Goldberg at Royal Rumble 2021

Drew McIntyre is the prodigal son of WWE. After failing to impress in his first run with the company, ‘The Scottish Psychopath’ worked his way back up through other promotions until he got the golden call again. 

He has had nothing but success since then and is currently the face of WWE, if not the most dominant force in the business. McIntyre is currently in his second run as WWE Champion and will defend the belt against Goldberg at Royal Rumble. 

Keith Lee and Ricochet have been working their way up the roster and both are regular appearances on Raw. Keith Lee is a gravity-defying man who is comfortable going aerial irrespective of his size.

Ricochet, on the other hand, is flexible and has an arsenal of moves at his disposal. He has also received a push through his storyline against Retribution and a title run is surely in the picture for him. 

Finn Bálor’s actions speak for him. The NXT Champion has fought tooth and nail to keep his gold and has taken down men twice his size. The brutalities of NXT keep coming his way, and he braves big injuries to stay at the top.
