Agree to this. Rumble winner doesn't automatically mean next Megastar. Sometimes they just push the hell out of people to make them a Mania worthy star and then simply feed them to their chosen ones. Both Asuka and Nakamura were victims of this.
Points were made here. Drew obviously lost McMahon's endorsement after The Chosen One gimmick flopped, he was thrown in a jobber stable, and eventually fired. Should Drew beat Lesnar? Yes. Will he? I don't know. This is one I'll have to wait and see for.
That hurt his chances in hindsight. On paper having Vince McMahon come out and endorse a new face as a future world champion sounds like a sound idea. However I remember when this happened it put immense pressure on Drew and for his experience level he was not ready for it. What made it worse was that everything he did would be under the microscope so any flaws he had would be immediately highlighted. I recall just to add some more context that at that time fan's wanted new stars, new faces and new matches. We had seen the HHH/Orton run every year from 2004, Cena needed new opponents and things in the middle had stagnated. Many people felt like names such as The Miz, Dolph Ziggler and even Jack Swagger should of had more concentrated pushes in addition to a returning Christian. So when they went with Drew and Sheamus and actually caused some resentment towards the both of them.
Um... no, man, there was no rocket. Drew was jobbed out to MATT HARDY in his first feud in 2009. Come on. The only remotely good thing during that run was tag teaming with Cody Rhodes, which showed that he can work some damn good matches, but then his booking feel apart again. After returning to WWE he was always associated with GEEKS. Corbin, Ziggler. Being Shane's lackey. Losing all big feuds, to Roman twice, to BALOR even. Being eliminated by Ziggler at last years RR. Never having any momentum. NOW he's got that rocket push, and now we can judge his ability to hold his own in main event. Next few months will definitely be interesting.
That's a fantastic journey, yes, but it's not like it was all planned. And we still can't guarantee that he'll beat Lesnar.
Hey dude, erm I wasn't really implying there was a rocket, I should have said this "Rocket" has taken 13 years as in that's not a rocket as it's a slow time frame, as the other poster said there was a quick rocket push and I was pretty much saying the opposite, he has worked hard for it, this has taken Drew a loooong time and long journey to get where he is now. But yeah he's hardly been on his own to shine since being on Raw, always paired with someone. I've been away for the past while unwell, so am catching up and from what I've seen it's strange how much has changed with the fans over the past few weeks and months cheering him and will be interesting to see what happens from here on out. It's no secret I'm a fan of Drew and it's nice to finally see something happening wining the Rumble and getting a chance at the top title is great.
Vince was definitely high on him at first, but then the hype died down, Drew went to the indies and re-established himself, then did the HHH/Jinder thing and bulked up, so now Vince loves him again. Pretty par for the course with WWE.
Say what you want about RAW and Smackdowns entrance sets but they are far better now than they were back then. Also, Thank goodness that Grisham is long gone from WWE now. Vic Joseph and Tom Philips are better than him.
As for McIntyre, I think that Vince was still high on him even when he was with 3MB. Those 3 guys were used a lot while together. It's just that Vince loves stupid comedy acts and seems to think more highly of them than what they really are.
^ good segment. And honestly, I think they are doing a good job building him up right now. Though, I still think they need to put him against Lashley at Elimination Chamber PPV and have him go over in a competitive, but not to long of a match. In the build to the match they need to have him bury Lana on the mic, that'd make him much more over, I think they'd be foolish to pass that opportunity.
I find it funny that Taker FINALLY breaks character after returning as the Deadman in 2004 against Kane, goes 16+ years running the same gimmick, then reverts back to the American Badass/Big Evil or a hybrid between ABA/Deadman (whatever you want to call it), cuts one of the best promos of his...

Did anyone catch Montez Ford hitting the floor last night? That didn't look like it was planned. I can't help but think Theory blew it by not catching him. That looked awful, and I pray he's ok. I really like the SP tag team.
There is no doubt that while Drew McIntyre has been a top talent in the industry for years, the Royal Rumble was a real star-making performance for the Scot.
Having been cast as a literal Scottish Psychopath or Terminator in recent years, the 34-year-old has essentially been himself on camera...
