It's genuinely astonishing that Drew McIntyre is a contender for this year's Rumble considering where he was just a month ago in WWE. He's now got a better chance, according to bookmakers, of appearing on 'The Grandest Stage Of Them All's' main event than Finn Balor, Aleister Black, and Braun Strowman.
The key reason for this sudden wave of support is his transformation into a Kevin Nash-esque figure who banters off opponents, leads the crowd in a countdown before hitting his finisher, and basically doesn't give a f*ck.
It's over ten years since Vince McMahon introduced 'The Scottish Psychopath' as a "future world champion" but it seems that WWE's opinion on the 34-year-old hasn't changed much in 2020. When Triple H was asked about McIntyre potentially becoming WWE Champion, the signs were good:-
"I think it’s a possibility. Drew has had an incredible run, started off at such a young age, and he’s still so young now and he’s kind of just coming into his own now as a performer, really. I told him that the sky is the limit for him.”
Disregard the fact he hasn't won on pay-per-view since Survivor Series 2018; he's exceptionally talented with bucketloads of personality, he fits Vince McMahon's mould to a tee, and he'd have a phenomenal encounter against either champion.
