WWE RAW has recently been centered around Drew McIntyre, amid swirling rumors about his future with the company. The seasoned wrestler made two significant moves today.
The Scottish Psychopath remained embroiled in his ongoing feud with Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins on this week’s episode of the red brand, especially after the CM Punk vs. Rollins WrestleMania 40 storyline fell through.
McIntyre made his mark earlier in the night by delivering a powerful Glasgow Kiss to Rollins, only to be blindsided by Rhodes later on. However, after Rhodes emerged victorious in the Bullrope Match main event against Shinsuke Nakamura, McIntyre stormed the ring and swiftly dispatched Rhodes with a decisive Claymore Kick, bringing the show to a dramatic close.
Additionally, earlier in the program, General Manager Adam Pearce imposed a fine on McIntyre for his prior attacks on Punk and Rollins, despite their existing injuries.
While McIntyre’s contract status with WWE and his WrestleMania plans remain uncertain, the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion found cause for celebration in his robust t-shirt sales. Taking to his Instagram Stories, McIntyre shared a tweet highlighting his ranking as the second-highest merchandise seller for WWE, specifically for t-shirt sales.
In another Instagram Stories post, the Celtic Colossus showcased a screenshot of a tweet urging Rhodes to make the right decisions as WrestleMania 40 approaches.
The tweet also promoted McIntyre’s latest WWE Shop t-shirt, featuring the 38-year-old standing next to a tombstone, symbolizing Punk’s absence from the WrestleMania XL main event. Surprisingly, this particular t-shirt has been flying off the shelves, emerging as McIntyre’s best-selling item on the WWE Shop website.
“#WeWantCody… To make the right choice. They’re using their voices and wallets @CodyRhodes, give them what they want and what you promised. And Twitter, give your loved ones what they want. A meme on a shirt. Thank you [right pointing triangle emoji] #WeWantDrew,” McIntyre captioned the post.
