And this, FYI, is why doing Bobby Lashley vs Brock Lesnar is fucking idiotic. No matter what, neither man is going to benefit long term from it because it's more of a spectacle than an actual match that progresses Bobby Lashley. He doesn't need the match. But giving him this match hurts everyone else around him. I think maybe you're overplaying what him beating Drew at Hell in a Cell does for his stock because this is a guy who has been through far worse and recovered just fine. But I will nonetheless express that I think it's just an incredibly pointless match to do, especially because we all know how the match is going to play out and we all know we're never going to see Lesnar again until MAYBE the Royal Rumble. Maybe.The more I think about this match the more I realise just how wrong it was of WWE to book it in the first place, because however you look at it the outcome is unlikely to make both men more over than they are going into it.
If the rumours are true and Brock Lesnar is coming back for SummerSlam, the winner of this match should really come out with a decisive win that puts them over as strong as possible ahead of the clash with Lesnar. The thing is neither man can afford it.
If Lashley goes over cleanly, McIntyre loses yet another title match and his stock falls further than it already has. The man who beat Lesnar at WrestleMania 36 would be seen as being incapable of winning a HIAC match (having lost to Orton last year), and having lost to Lashley at WrestleMania; Raw is left without a strong top babyface.
That would be the most idiotic thing they could possibly do.Even if McIntyre were to win as you describe it would not eliminate the possibility of a Lashley/Lesnar match.
For example, Lashley could regain belt the next day on RAW with a clean finish, etc.
