#5 Roman Reigns responsible for Drew McIntyre beating Randy Orton for the WWE Championship
Drew McIntyre's win over The Viper on RAW came as a shock to many fans. Rumours had suggested that Randy Orton will be facing Edge at WrestleMania 37 for the WWE Championship. However, with McIntyre regaining the WWE Championship, it is clear that the company still has its faith in the Scottish Psychopath to lead RAW.
As per Dave Meltzer of WOR, the reason for Orton becoming the WWE Champion was just to give him a win over Drew McIntyre after losing to him continuously.
"Because they got nothing going on and they'd already done a bunch of Randy Orton-Drew McIntyre matches but Drew McIntyre kept winning and to keep it going they had Randy Orton win one so they did." (H/t: SportsKeeda)
Dave Meltzer also stated that one of the reasons for McIntyre becoming Champion could be so that WWE could have Roman Reigns face McIntyre at Survivor Series instead of Randy Orton.
"They're both good wrestlers but it's two heels... the eventual thing would be that everybody would cheer Roman Reigns and they're not really looking for that this week. Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre is kind of like the battle of the top dog in each brand."
Drew McIntyre will take on Roman Reigns at Survivor Series.
