Drew McIntyre remains one of the top Superstars in all of WWE and has competed against the best stars in the company. He is also a former WWE Champion as he won the title on two different occasions. Drew McIntyre was unable to win the WWE Championship from Bobby Lashley on Night One of WrestleMania despite his best efforts. In a repeat of what took place at WrestleMania 37, Drew McIntyre competed against Bobby Lashley and Braun Strowman for the WWE Championship on Sunday’s WWE WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view. Despite putting on an incredible performance, the Scottish Warrior was not able to win the WWE Title again. Drew McIntyre could also be going to a new pro wrestling promotion.
Drew McIntyre also lost to Bobby Lashley at the WWE Hell In A Cell pay-per-view and lost the right to challenge for the WWE Championship. He then made his way to Friday Night Smackdown and started a feud with Roman Reigns, but lost to him at WWE Clash At The Castle.
On his To Be The Man podcast, Ric Flair he spoke about Roman Reigns retaining the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship over Drew McIntyre in the main event of the Clash at the Castle event.
“It’s not that Drew didn’t deserve to win but if you’re gonna get eventually if that’s the plan, which we all hope it is and I’m sure the company hopes it is. I’m assuming the company, never hope or assume anything, but if the plan is The Rock and Roman I just think the words ‘Heavyweight Championship’ are very important in that match.”
“And I think taking the belt off Roman and taking nothing away from Drew, Drew could very easily carry it and be a good champion as well. But the big match for the company, maybe one of the biggest of all time, obviously is Rock, if he elects to do that and Roman. So the way they did it didn’t hurt Drew at all. And Drew, you know, he’s always gonna be great.”
According to former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. on his Spotify podcast “Wrestling with Freddie,” Fury’s vocalizing – which covered the first stanza of the classic tune followed by a sing-along with the Cardiff audience – was not supposed to be part of the broadcast. Triple H made a mistake.
“The end of the match was weird because they forgot to say cut,” Prinze said. “I know this for a fact — I asked a couple of people. They left the feed running and all of a sudden Drew McIntyre was feeling good, Tyson Fury came out to the ring, and they sang ‘Sweet Caroline’ after a loss. It was so weird.”
