Bobby Lashley is still going strong as WWE Champion while Roman Reigns is on SmackDown as Universal Champion. Money in the Bank could present a big opportunity for a surprise, and Drew McIntyre plans on making it his night.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that the current landscape, coupled with the stipulation that Drew McIntyre can not challenge Lashley for his title, could point toward a move to the blue brand for the Scottish Warrior.
“I think that stipulation may mean that he goes to SmackDown, because god knows Roman Reigns has no opponents. Who knows if they’re going to do that in the draft?”
It was noted that if Bobby Lashley is going to remain the top guy on Raw, then it makes sense to move McIntyre over to Roman Reigns as his new opponent. It might also be worth noting that Roman Reigns recently said in an interview that he would pass the torch to Drew McIntyre if given the choice.
We’ll have to see what happens in the future. The WWE Draft has been reportedly pushed back to October, so they will have a month longer with these current rosters prior to switching things around. Then again, the Money in the Bank winner can pretty much show up on whichever brand they like.
What’s your take on moving Drew McIntyre to SmackDown? Sound odd in the comments!
