Drew McIntyre’s social media game and subsequent heel turn have truly elevated him to the top of the card on Monday Night RAW. In light of his ascent, McIntyre deemed Damian Priest unworthy as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion after RAW.

Despite being sidelined with a fractured elbow, Drew McIntyre continues to make appearances on WWE Raw. On the May 13 episode, World Heavyweight Champion Damian Priest agreed to give McIntyre title shot once he is cleared to compete.

Following a brief backstage appearance on the May 20th episode of Monday Night RAW, The Scottish Warrior took to Twitter and addressed Damian Priest, as he deemed Priest unworthy as the World Champion.

“Management and Adam Pearce think they can silence me. They should already know, I’m Drew McIntyre, and I am very, very good at this. I’m always one step ahead of everybody. Bring me to the show, try not to put me on TV. No, I’ll force my way on TV, and in the end, I got this platform that’s growing. I will weaponize it, and I will say what I want, when I want. There’s not a damn thing you can do to stop me. So as I was saying on Raw, it’s all falling apart for you, [Damian] Priest. You lost control of your little emo group. You’ve got people coming for you, and you’ve barely even started with all the extracurricular that comes with being the guy. I’m having to do that for you. This is very much my locker room. Always has been. My turf, where I grew up, and I’m the champion, whether I got the title right now or not. It’s just a matter of time before I get that title back. You made one good point last week though.


It wasn’t about getting attacked from behind by that b**** CM Punk, it wasn’t about leaving right away after the match, which I should have done, even though I literally spelled out what I planned to do, looking for your cheap pops. It certainly wasn’t about recycling the same joke Sheamus made already, getting your ass beat by the one-arm man [fake laughs]. Again, spinning things, looking for that cheap pop, just like him. No, I gave you the blueprint on how to cash in. Look what happened? You ran with it, you won. So in a way, Drew McIntyre beat Drew McIntyre. It didn’t matter who was holding the briefcase because I’m such leader and honest to my own detriment at times with my advice.”

McIntyre also made it clear that he did not want Priest to defeat Seth Rollins at WWE WrestleMania 40, as he aimed to do that himself. He criticized Priest for spreading himself too thin and stated that Priest was not the world champion that Raw needed. However, he did acknowledge Priest’s abilities and promised to see him soon.

“But here’s the truth. I didn’t want you to beat Seth. I made that very clear, no matter how you want to spin it. Watch the footage back. I hate explaining myself, but society has such short attention spans these days, I literally need to. I wanted to beat the real champion, the man who made the title. So credit where credit is due, just because I think you’re spreading yourself way too thin. Again, more advice that might hurt me in the future, you’re not the man that Raw needs as champion right now. Not the world champion. It doesn’t mean I don’t value you. Quite the opposite in fact. You’re a specimen, a beast in the ring. You’ve shown you more than belong, and I’ve got a place for you on my show, right near the top. Right up there. Unfortunately, you reached your peak right around the same time Drew McIntyre started to reach his. That’s it. See you soon, champ.”

We have already reported that Drew McIntyre vs Damian Priest is set to take place at the Clash at The Castle Premium Live Event in June. Regardless, we’ll have to see whether The Scottish Warrior will be able to topple The Archer of Infamy at the event.
