In the opening match of Night One of WrestleMania 37, Drew McIntyre challenged Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship.
Despite his best efforts, Drew McIntyre was unable to defeat Bobby Lashley for the title after passing out from the Hurt Lock. Fans were certainly shocked to see McIntyre lose.
While speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T talked about Drew McIntyre vs Bobby Lashley and said that the fan reaction to McIntyre losing was similar to The Undertaker’s streak ending at WrestleMania 30.
“I don’t know if that’s what they wanted though (Lashley winning the match). Let me tell you something, I was there, I saw it up close and personal. The fans were so shocked, literally I thought somebody in the front row was going to die from shock. It was surprising but the air seemed like – I wouldn’t say left the arena or anything like that, but everybody was shocked to the point where almost like The Undertaker’s Streak was broken. That’s the way it felt in the arena when Drew McIntyre did not break the Hurt Lock. Lot of people did not see that happening the way it happened.”
Drew McIntyre became the #1 contender for the WWE Championship on last night’s episode of Monday Night RAW and will challenge Bobby Lashley for the title at WrestleMania Backlash.
