Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman are regarded by the vast majority of professional wrestling fans and experts alike as two of the top WWE Superstars today.

However, perhaps one of the most pointless feuds in recent memory, has been this very feud between McIntyre and Strowman! Frankly speaking, this is a lose-lose situation for both Superstars.
