Drew McIntyre is the person Heyman is going with but Meltzer noted that Aleister Black was also being considered.
“Aleister Black was in the running for the Lesnar match,” Meltzer said. “The decision was made to go with McIntyre.”
Meltzer added, “It was probably the right decision considering it’s early for Aleister Black but he was absolutely in the running for that decision.”
You can tell from watching WWE Raw every week that Black is someone who is being protected with the goal of elevating him into a main event star. As noted earlier, Heyman is working on trying to elevate several wrestlers including Drew McIntyre, Buddy Murphy, Andrade and a few others.
