I guess he’s next. The World Title is the biggest and most important championship a promotion can have. The name alone is about all you need to hear: the wrestler holding it is the best in the world. You might hear it called by a variety of names but it is about as simple of a concept as possible. Now we know who is coming for one of the most prominent titles in wrestling.

This week’s Monday Night Raw ended with WWE Champion Big E. successfully defending his title against Bobby Lashley inside a steel cage. Following the match, the cage was raised and Drew McIntyre appeared, pointing his sword at Big E., who nodded in return. This would suggest that McIntyre is the next challenger for the title. The two have not had a singles match since 2014.

This could be an interesting one. Check out who we might be seeing going head to head:

Big E targeted by Drew McIntyre after Steel Cage Match against Bobby Lashley: Raw, Sept. 27, 2021

Big E cashes in to become WWE Champion: Raw, Sept. 13, 2021

FULL MATCH - Drew McIntyre vs. Keith Lee: Raw, Sept. 21, 2020

Opinion: This is the kind of thing that Monday Night Raw could use: a fresh title program. McIntyre dominated Monday Night Raw for so long and Big E. defeating him, assuming that is the case, would be quite the pickup for the new champion. I’m not sure how long it is going to take to get to this match, but they have me interested right out of the gate, so well done so far.
