Drew McIntyre: Confronting Big E On WWE Raw Might Be A Waste If I'm Drafted To WWE SmackDown

Now that Bobby Lashley is no longer the WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre is clear to go after the belt.

At the end of Monday's WWE Raw, McIntyre pointed his sword at Big E, who successfully defended the title against Lashley in a cage match.

However, with the WWE Draft on Friday, McIntyre may never get his shot at Big E.

"Since I returned to WWE, obviously I started with NXT, but I came back to Raw in 2018 and we've been through a few drafts since then and Raw has become my home," McIntyre said on Table Talk when discussing the draft. "I can't imagine not being on Raw, but at the same time, a change of scenery, a fresh environment, a fresh start, a fresh coat of paint is not necessarily a bad thing. I'm honestly torn and just like everyone else, I'm going to find out on the night. I'm sure everything thinks (they know), I don't know. I honestly don't know right now what's going to happen. We saw on Raw on Monday, I came out and made my intentions known that I'm coming back for the WWE Championship now that Lashley is no longer WWE Champion, I can contend for it. It might also be a waste of my time if I get drafted on Friday. If that's the case, I'm going straight for Roman and the Universal Championship because my eyes is always on the top prize."

Night one of the WWE Draft takes place on Friday's WWE SmackDown.

Fightful will have live coverage of WWE SmackDown beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
