#4 Randy Orton set to become the next WWE Champion

Randy Orton

Drew McIntyre has done a fabulous job as the WWE Champion in this era. However, it looks like his reign as the Champion will not get to hear the roar of the crowd as there are already plans to take the title off him.

As per WrestlingNews.co, there is an idea that Randy Orton will become the next WWE Champion at SummerSlam. The reason behind this move is to make the third match between Edge and Randy Orton a Championship match.

However, it is not all bad news for the Scottish Psychopath as the current plans involve him winning back the WWE Championship from Randy Orton once the audience finally returns to the shows.

''An idea was pitched to have Orton win the title and then defend against Edge at the Royal Rumble or WrestleMania and McIntyre could win the title again at a later date to get his true crowning moment with fans in attendance.”

It would be truly unfortunate if Drew McIntyre was to lose his WWE title before even getting a chance to to hear the crowd's reaction to him as Champion.
