McIntyre and Rhodes dissolved their combination after losing the championship to The Nexus (John Cena and David Otunga) at the Bragging Rights PPV on October 24. McIntyre would be the last guy standing on his squad when Big Show eliminated him. After the match, Rhodes came out and told McIntyre that he was taken off the team because he is a "single man show".
He would go on to say that he doesn't need him anymore since Drew McIntyre is now his partner in crime.
Here are the details of the Drew McIntyre Nexus story: When Big Show announced at the Bragging Rights event that teams would be chosen by him before each match, many wrestlers wondered how Drew would be selected since he was still on the independent scene at the time. It was then revealed that Big Show would be choosing members for his team during the intermission. This way, he could pick people he knew would help him win matches quickly while also getting rid of any potential distractions.
Drew was first up for selection but when it came time for him to choose someone, he refused. He told Big Show that since he was still working independently, there was no point in having him on the team. Then Big Show said that if Drew didn't want to be on the team, he would choose someone else instead. Rhodes came forward and asked to be picked so Drew chose him as his replacement.
Drew McIntyre was set to beat Randy Orton and become the next WWE Champion. That is exactly how the main event battle on WWE RAW this week played out, with Drew McIntyre recapturing the championship from Randy Orton that he had recently lost at WWE Hell in a Cell. Before the match could start, though, Drew's manager, Theodore Long, attacked him from behind and hit him with a baseball bat, thus ending his run as champion.
During the attack, Randy Orton noticed what was going on and made his way down to the ring. When Drew's manager was done with him, Randy took off his shirt, revealing a large mark on his chest that appeared to be the result of being shot by a gun. He then went after Drew's manager with them both eventually coming to blows in the aisle before security came to break up the fight. As things settled down, Randy approached Drew and told him that since he was not able to win his title back at Hell in a Cell, he would be giving it away for any member of the crowd who wanted him to. A young boy named Daniel Bryan came out to the ring and asked if anyone else wanted to challenge Orton for the title, but when no one else stepped forward, Randy agreed to give him his belt back.
After some time, Drew McIntyre returned to the ring and said he needed one more chance at winning back his title.
On Sunday night at Survivor Series, Universal champion Roman Reigns defeated WWE champion Drew McIntyre in a match between the company's top two titleholders. The global champion was able to lock in a guillotine choke, and McIntyre passed out as a result. After the match, Reigns attempted to arrest McIntyre but he fought back so Reigns had no choice but to call for security.
McIntyre was taken away by paramedics but he was later revealed to be okay after all. This means that McIntyre will retain his championship at WrestleMania 34 on April 8.
Reigns vs McIntyre was scheduled for this week's episode of Raw but it ended up being a singles match instead. On the other hand, McIntyre also participated in another triple threat match that included John Cena and Brock Lesnar with none of them able to win. It was announced following the match that both Reigns and McIntyre will face each other at Survivor Series in a steel cage match where the winner will receive an opportunity to fight for the title at WrestleMania 34.
Also at Survivor Series, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn were supposed to face off in a tag team match but Zayn suffered an injury and was replaced by Natalya. Owens and Natayla went on to defeat The New Day (Big E and Xavier Woods) to win the match.
The union finally disbanded, but McIntyre's career is only getting started. He demonstrated this by terminating all three members of The Shield and forging a dominant relationship with Shane McMahon. McIntyre, who enjoys nothing more than getting into a brawl, seems completely at home in whichever ring he enters, and the WWE Universe is overjoyed to have him. He remains one of the company's most popular stars today.
After The McMahons left, McIntyre took control of the business end by forming an alliance with Vince McMahon's son Shane. Together, they went on to become two of the most successful managers in history. Under their leadership, both men became four-time world champions. During this time, McIntyre also earned a reputation as a great athlete who was able to adapt his style depending on which opponent he was facing. His aggressive approach worked for many matches, but some wrestlers weren't comfortable having him throw punches their way. This led to several controversial decisions by referees during Shane's reign as well as a few high-profile fights between them and other wrestlers. Despite all this, no one can deny that Drew McIntyre is one of the biggest stars in WWE today.
McIntyre first entered the WWE arena in 2002 when he was hired by Vince McMahon to manage his daughter Stephanie. From there, he went on to become one of the most popular stars in the company, working with some of wrestling's greatest athletes including John Cena, The Rock, Shawn Michaels, and The Undertaker.
