New storylines and feuds

The draft brings new possibilities of fresh ideas and unseen storylines. If Lashley were to be drafted to the blue brand, then the next feud for the WWE Championship could be between Big E and Drew McIntyre.

As we already know, McIntyre wasn’t allowed to compete for the WWE Championship as long as Lashley was the titleholder. However, now that The Almighty is no longer at the helm, ‘The Scottish Warrior’ is free to do whatever he likes.

If Lashley does jump ship, then the main feud could be between ‘The Hurt Business’ and ‘The Bloodline’.

However, even if Lashley doesn’t switch brands, McIntyre can step forth to claim his lost title. But whether the WWE management gives him another big push is yet to be seen.
