Whether that all works out or not remains to be seen and will depend on what the company's true intentions are, but here are five ways WWE is trying to get fans behind Drew McIntyre.
As always, let us know your thoughts in the comments below and be sure to tell us if you will be rooting for McIntyre at WrestleMania 36.
#5 Making his win out to be a fluke
Paul Heyman is a man of many words and while anytime he takes the microphone is instantaneously polarizing, he has seemingly taken it up a notch. Beyond that, he is making Drew McIntyre's win at the Royal Rumble out to be a fluke and it is really starting to get under the skin of the WWE Universe.
In all honesty, to watch Paul Heyman explain away Lesnar's loss at the Royal Rumble as just a cheap shot and an opportunity capitalized on was nothing short of disgusting. It also really cut into McIntyre's victory, which also helped to bring the WWE Universe's blood to a boil.
It's really the perfect plan and Paul Heyman shaping the narrative is only going to get worse at it goes on. That's when the WWE Universe's anger will be at its peak and they will firmly get behind McIntyre. All WWE has to do between now and WrestleMania 36 is keep driving fans towards that peak and allow for The Show of Shows to be that cathartic passing of the torch moment.
