Drew McIntyre is currently adopting a villainous persona on the WWE RAW brand, and he has recently issued a warning to a returning top superstar. The Scottish Psychopath has made it clear that he is not a fan of CM Punk, who exclusively signed with the red brand despite McIntyre advising against it. The two veterans, McIntyre and Punk, had a brief interaction backstage, hinting at a potential match in the future.
During an appearance on WWE’s The Bump, McIntyre continued to take aim at Punk, expressing his knowledge and understanding of the former AEW World Champion. He highlighted his experiences with Punk, emphasizing his growth and changes since their time together, hinting at a potential confrontation in the future.
In the upcoming Day 1 edition of RAW on January 2nd, McIntyre is set to face Seth Rollins in the main event, with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on the line. McIntyre also touched on his recent encounters with other WWE Superstars, including Jey Uso and Sami Zayn, suggesting a shift in his attitude since turning heel.
Following McIntyre’s recent issues with Sami Zayn, a poll conducted by the official WWE Instagram account revealed that 74% of fans believed McIntyre’s anger was justified. McIntyre responded to the poll results on X, expressing his thoughts on the WWE locker room’s opinion.
Since embracing his heel persona, McIntyre has secured three TV singles victories, including wins over Sami Zayn and Jey Uso. Despite a previous loss to Seth Rollins at Crown Jewel, McIntyre is set to challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship at the upcoming event on January 2nd.
As McIntyre’s antics continue to stir controversy, the prospect of a feud between McIntyre and CM Punk remains intriguing, prompting speculation about the future of McIntyre within the WWE and the possibility of him considering a move to AEW.
