Drew McIntyre was so instrumental in Seth Rollins’ Intercontinental Title loss to Dolph Ziggler that The Kingslayer labeled him a “problem,” but it’s one he’ll have to deal with on Sunday after losing to the former NXT Champion in a bout that had major implications for Rollins’ 30-Minute WWE Iron Man title challenge against Ziggler at this Sunday’s pay-per-view.
McIntyre, goaded into the bout by Rollins’ mockery earlier in the show, was forced to accept the proviso that he’d be banned from ringside at WWE Extreme Rules if The Kingslayer defeated him. As such, both Superstars fought with extra urgency, though McIntyre’s pure power forced Rollins to mount a mostly defensive effort against “The Scottish Terminator.”
Rollins finally found some success after he turned to his speed, and McIntyre answered once more with his strength, tossing Rollins around in an extraordinary display of power. Yet The Kingslayer rallied down the stretch, and Ziggler was forced to run interference as he began to reach fever pitch. Rollins’ detour to emphatically stomp The Showoff left him vulnerable, however, and McIntyre capitalized with a Claymore to the face to win the match. Now, McIntyre remains a wild card, and it’s not hard to expect he’ll look to repay Ziggler’s favor on Sunday. The problem remains unsolved.
