At WrestleMania 35, Seth Rollins achieved the unthinkable by defeating Brock Lesnar to become the new universal champion. The next night at RAW, the “Beast Slayer” played against Kofi Kingston (the new WWE Champion) before teaming up with the latter against The Bar. Thus, we still do not know who will challenge the former Shield member for the most prestigious belt of the red show.
Yet Dave Meltzer gives us some details on this. According to his sources, it is well Drew McIntyre who will come to challenge Seth Rollins in the coming weeks for the universal title. This is not really a surprise since the two men have already started a little rivalry just before WrestleMania. While McIntyre lost to Roman Reigns during the biggest pay-per-view of the year, Scots is still represented as a major threat on RAW’s side.
Of course, this rumor can not be verified so it is necessary to take it with tweezers. Indeed, plans can always change with the “shake-up” that will take place next week. In addition, Drew McIntyre seems to have been injured at SmackDown Live, which could put his rivalry with Seth Rollins in question. For now, we do not know anything about the severity of this supposed injury.
