Drew McIntyre intervenes in Cody Rhodes’s personal saga, turns focus to Seth Rollins on WWE RAW

Cody Rhodes did not offer an explanation for his decision to withdraw from the main event of WrestleMania 40 during last week’s Monday Raw broadcast. However, last night’s Raw took an unexpected turn with the sudden appearance of Drew McIntyre, who attempted to inject his personal drama into the heavyweight championship scene.

This resulted in friction between Drew McIntyre and Rollins, as Rollins aimed to step in for Rhodes at WrestleMania. However, McIntyre interfered and urged Rhodes to conclude his storyline in the way he deemed fitting.

McIntyre’s Unexpected Intervention into Rhodes’s off-ring drama

A number of obstacles have recently hampered the journey to WrestleMania 40. Things are not looking good with CM Punk out with a triceps injury and Seth Rollins nursing a ruptured MCL.

The Rock also made his comeback when Cody Rhodes surprised everyone by withdrawing from his bout against Roman Reigns on WrestleMania. It’s a total meltdown, and fans all across the globe are fuming—some to the point of labeling “Toxic” conduct on social media.

Rollins attempted to divert the spotlight from the current challenges on the latest edition of WWE RAW by creating a scene, challenging the American Nightmare to a match at WrestleMania. Cody was about to respond when Drew McIntyre burst onto the scene, insisting that Cody should reclaim his spot and conclude his story.

Drew also injected emotional weight into the argument by mentioning Dusty Rhodes, Cody’s father.  At first, the audience thought Drew was rooting for Cody, but he had other intentions. Despite hints that Drew might turn heel, his fame has made it difficult. As the tension between the once-loved hero Rollins and McIntyre grows, it becomes challenging to distinguish who is the face and who is the heel. On New Year’s Day, they squared off for the World Heavyweight Championship, revealing McIntyre’s surprising objective in Rhodes’ drama.

McIntyre shifts attention to Rollins amidst personal turmoil

Along with pushing Cody Rhodes to achieve his dreams, Drew McIntyre and Seth Rollins had a falling out on last night’s RAW. Their ongoing feud has been brewing since the beginning of the current year. The 38-year-old former champion interrupted them with plans to face Rollins at WrestleMania 40, even sporting shirts mocking CM Punk. It was his suggestion that Rollins and Cody not face each other. 

Following Rollins’s reminder of his earlier success against the “Scottish Warrior” brought to Cody’s previous victories over Rollins’ attention. Drew insisted it was his moment to shine while praising Rollins as a fearsome champion; this led to a heated confrontation, which Cody eventually ended by sending Drew packing. However, it became obvious that Drew wanted a chance at the heavyweight title for himself in the upcoming WrestleMania.

There was a lot of drama, but as Drew advanced his goal, the thought of Rhodes and Rollins battling for the championship looked like it was disappearing. But once spectators got a grip on the scenario, they realized the Scottish professional’s efforts to deflect attention were weak, and the other two stars in the ring seemed to be plotting against him.

If CM Punk is unable to make a comeback due to injury, do you think Drew McIntyre deserves another shot at meeting the heavyweight title at WrestleMania? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Oh, hi, this is Md Robin Ahmed, a WWE fan and I everyday go through a slew of popular WWE stories on Sportszion. Watching Big Show's Showstopper was the beginning of my passion for WWE, though I have to say that his Chokeslam is not one of my favorite moves. Over time, my love for professional wrestling has intensified, mostly due to the Shield, and my all-time favorite wrestler in WWE is Big Dog. I would give everything to be able to be within a few feet of him to witness his iconic Superman Punch and Spear. My major is engineering, but I'm most happy when I'm doing something artistic that doesn't put me under any pressure. Watching them wrestle and discuss their matches is always fun for me. And I've finally discovered a career that gives me fun since it allows me to with my dream heroes lifestyle. So, Welcome! I'd love to hear from you on LinkedIn and Facebook.
