Mark Henry thinks Drew McIntyre will be World Champion within a year

Since Roman Reigns left the company to battle leukemia, WWE is looking to push certain superstars in his place, and it seems that Drew McIntyre is one of those superstars. Over the past few weeks, “The Scottish Psychopath” has been one of the focal points on Raw and looks like he’s ready to cash in on an opportunity to become one of the faces of WWE.

McIntyre was once regarded as WWE’s next big-time prospect several years ago, but was ultimately released after an unimpressive first run with the company. However, since returning, McIntyre has been a different beast. It seems everyone is impressed with Drew, and you can add Hall of Famer Mark Henry to that list.

Henry recently spoke to Dave LaGreca on Busted Open Radio and spoke very highly of McIntyre.

“Drew is grabbing the business by the reigns and he’s doing things a lot of the young people aren’t doing,” Mark stated. “That is why he is in the conversation we are talking about: Where is he going to be in the next year or two? I think that he will be champion. Before next year is over, Drew McIntyre will be world champion.”

Expect McIntyre’s push to continue at Survivor Series as he leads Team Raw against Team Smackdown in a 5-on-5 Survivor Series tag match.


  • Steven Stevens

    Drew vs Hulk at WM 35

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    He will be a great WWE Champion and it will most likely happen on Smackdown.

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    Agreed. My only complaint with AJ’s run is Joe not holding the belt once when he’s a guy who really needs it

  • Jon Poyser

    I’m hoping brock drops the belt at rumble really don’t want a repeat of the last 12 months also hoping AJ goes over at survivor series as makes no sense for him to be on the losing end of that match with the run he’s on

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    Fair point, they both suffer from bad booking (look at Auska) but I think he’s better suited there with guys like Joe and AJ Styles without people like Brock just disappearing for months

  • Jon Poyser

    so smackdown is the place to be for nxt call ups how do you explain Nakamura?

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    Depends how long he stays on Raw, I mean the creative team are notoriously bad for badly booking talent from nxt. But if he can go over to Smackdown he might fare better over there similar to how he was a few years ago as “the chosen one” but there’s no denying he needs to be WWE champion
