#7 Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Braun Strowman - WWE Championship at Royal Rumble 2021
Drew McIntyre successfully defended his WWE Championship against AJ Styles and The Miz, who cashed-in his Money in the Bank contract mid-match, at TLC 2020. However, as per reports, it was Braun Strowman who was originally supposed to challenge McIntyre for the WWE Championship.
The Monster Among Men is currently facing a storyline suspension on RAW but was in fact injured. Looking at all his social media posts, Strowman looks to be ready to be back in action and he already has a feud to continue as it was his desire to get a WWE Championship match that led to him attacking Adam Pearce and subsequently facing the storyline suspension.
Braun Strowman challenging Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship at Royal Rumble 2021 will be a blockbuster feud. The two have enough history together during their time as 'Dogs of War' with Dolph Ziggler that could play in the mix as well. It is unlikely that Strowman would be the one to dethrone Drew McIntyre as the Champion but a stage like Royal Rumble deserves a big feud for the WWE Championship, and this could surely be the one.
Prediction: Drew McIntyre retains the WWE Championship
