Drew McIntyre has only been part of the Monday Night Raw roster for a few weeks now, aligning himself with Dolph Ziggler as they wreak havoc on the other tag teams.
It's been a slow and steady race with McIntyre since coming back to the WWE and moving up from NXT, but don't think for a second it's going to be slow for long. According to WrestleVotes, Vince McMahon and Triple H are high on McIntyre, and they made be ready to give him a major push soon.
Texting With A Source: heard that since his return to Monday Night Raw last month, Vince has been very high on Drew McIntyre. Triple H also heavily involved in Drew. Pairing w/ Ziggler is for the time being, but could turn into something big down the line. #TWAS— WrestleVotes (@WrestleVotes) May 18, 2018
The 32-year-old Scotsman once held the NXT Championship and won both the Intercontinental title and WWE Tag Team Championships - alongside Cody Rhodes - in his last run with the promotion.
McIntyre certainly has the size and in-ring talent to be a main eventer, and he doesn't have to talk on the microphone much to play the ultra heel character we've come to know and love. Of course, it takes a while for WWE to develop main event stars, so it could be a few months until we see a major change for McIntyre's character.
It's worth noting that the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported in April that Vince also sees a lot in Baron Corbin, who could also be in line for a major push soon. Both he and McIntyre perform on the Raw brand, so perhaps we could see two new stars become the big money draws?
Of course, pushing both McIntyre and Corbin would have to mean WWE giving up on the Roman Reigns experiment - something they've refused to do for over three years now. McIntyre and Corbin would almost certainly be welcomed as main eventers by the WWE Universe, if it meant giving up on Reigns once and for all.
The Raw roster is stacked with other talents in Seth Rollins, Brock Lesnar and Reigns, plus Dean Ambrose when he returns. As such, it'll be interesting to see how and when WWE finds a way to push Corbin and McIntyre even more.
