If you are one of those people trying to guess on what’s next with Drew McIntyre, your guess is as good as anyone because The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that the stuff they’ve been doing with McIntyre, Braun Strowman, and Dolph Ziggler is being booked week-to-week by Vince McMahon and the writers and they currently do not have an end game on where things are going.
It is clear that there are big plans for McIntyre as a singles Superstar at some point but it’s not clear yet if the plan is for a McIntyre vs. Strowman match or if the tease on Monday will just lead to them being on the same page again next week. If they ignore what happened last Monday on Raw then it would follow the same pattern as the Bayley and Sasha Banks booking where the original plan was for Bayley to turn heel but then they had Banks turn and then they got back together and they seemingly gave up on a Bayley vs. Banks feud.
The ending last week on Raw with McIntyre taking out Strowman was just something that was put together for that show to get people talking. The only thing that is clear is that they are protecting McIntyre. He lost earlier in the show but it was via count-out and not a pinfall.
On the flip side, there is a direction planned for the storyline with Dean Ambrose and the rest of The Shield. It’s not 100 percent clear if Ambrose will be turning but it is worth noting that the plan last year was for Ambrose to turn and the plan was for Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 34.
