The opening segment of this week’s star-studded Raw saw a heated promo that ignited the fans, anticipating what could be next. The WWE Universe saw Drew McIntyre and CM Punk engage in a war of words.
The segment opened up with The Scottish Warrior commenting on what went wrong during last week’s Raw Day 1. Drew was upset about his loss against Seth Rollins. He then started throwing shade at the Best in the World, CM Punk. However, the latter eventually interrupted him by making his return to Raw.
Fightful Wrestling on X shared a video of the whole segment. This hot exchange is currently the most talked-about topic, especially within the WWE Universe. Fans considered this Drew’s best work on the mic in recent times.
You’re straight edge. You don’t have any demons. You are a demon.
Drew McIntyre to CM Punk
Punk fired back by saying that if McIntyre was looking for a leader, he could join The Straight Edge Society by shaving his head. The Second City Savior is determined to replicate McIntyre’s success by winning the Royal Rumble and headlining WrestleMania.
I’m not a demon, when pushed, I’m Satan himself.
CM Punk’s reply to Drew McIntyre
McIntyre took a shot at the former WWE Champion by referencing his decision to leave WWE in 2014, attempting to bring down The Best in the World. In response, Punk didn’t hold back; he implied that he is such a nice guy that he would eliminate Drew at last and win the Royal Rumble. Needless to say, this left a lot of fans wanting to see a match between the two stars.
Drew McIntyre blames Damian Priest for his loss at Raw Day 1
The Scottish Warrior kicked off WWE Raw by addressing his recent loss to Seth “Freakin” Rollins at Raw Day 1. The former WWE Champion blamed Damian Priest for costing him the championship. McIntyre called Damian an ‘idiot’ for the attempted cash-in during the ongoing title match.
During the later half of the show, Priest was concerned about the 38-year-old and wanted nothing to do with him. He was discussing this during a backstage segment while reacting to R-Truth’s life video.
Fans are speculating that WWE may be heading with Drew eventually replacing Damian in the Judgement Day. The Scottish Warrior seems to be playing the role of a tweener. The WWE Universe is anticipating what direction The Scottish Warrior could be heading in for Mania.
