WWE Champion Big E is taking on Drew McIntyre at Crown Jewel 2021

The Champion is putting the WWE Championship on the line against The Scottish Warrior at Crown Jewel 2021. McIntyre is actually glad E is champion because when Bobby Lashley was champion, The Almighty banned McIntyre for the title while he was champion.

Now that E is champion again, McIntyre can challenge for the title again.

McIntyre approached him on Monday Night Raw, and explained that he’s glad Big E is the champion, but since E did cash in on an injured Lashley, there needs to be a rematch for the title.

But, the rematch won’t be against Lashley, it’ll be against Drew McIntyre. WWE set the rematch for Crown Jewel 2021.
