After winning the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania 36 (RESULT) by defeating Brock Lesnar, he then emerged victorious again against Big Show on the following week on Monday Night Raw.
Since then McIntyre has beaten King Baron Corbin, Seth Rollins, Buddy Murphy, Angel Garza and United States Champion Andrade. Now WWE has taken Bobby Lashley seriously so that he could face McIntyre at WWE Backlash (READ Full Story).
Looks like WWE is being focused on making McIntyre a megastar on Raw. As per our source, WWE is very impressed by McIntyre and his work in the recent months, not only inside the ring but as well as outside the ring during promos and media interactions.
It seems like WWE management including Vince McMahon and Raw Executive Director Paul Heyman are having faith in McIntyre and planning to put the entire roster around him. They are also pushing him to be a main eventer for years to come, which means his WWE Championship reign is not a once of like we saw with Finn Balor, Jinder Mahal and Kofi Kingston.
In a recent interview with ESPN, it has revealed that WWE has told them to introduce McIntyre as ‘The Star of Monday Night Raw’ and not WWE Champion. As it is a promotional tactic for people to get to watch Raw as there is a fall in TV rating recently during coronavirus pandemic.
