The next marquee event on WWE's calendar is Super ShowDown, which is set to take place in Saudi Arabia. 2018 saw two monstrous PPVs take place in the Middle East and Vince McMahon and company are back again to give us all a moment of glee.
WWE have been trying to expand their horizons and it won't be wrong to say that they've been quite successful till now. But things haven't been entirely mesmerizing in the buildup to Super ShowDown and the road to Saudi Arabia event has yielded some disappointments.
With AEW's rise, the time is enormously crucial for Vince McMahon and company because the word on the block is that AEW has the credentials to compete with WWE, something which hasn't been heard for a long time.
WWE's mega event in Saudi Arabia might get the spotlight back on Vince McMahon's billion-dollar organisation but it hasn't been all spring for the company. Here we list down 5 major disappointments heading on to WWE's Saudi Arabia event:
#5 No singles bout for Drew McIntyre
In the latest WWE NEWS, WWE enthusiasts are clueless as to what future plans the company holds for Drew McIntyre. The Scottish Psychopath made a promising return in 2018 as he took the main scene by storm thanks to his prominent transformation, which left the WWE Universe in awe.
McIntyre showed signs of reaching the top and prior to WrestleMania 35, it looked like the company has something special for McIntyre. But things haven't remotely been close to spectacular for Drew as the Post-Mania period has been pretty much dull for him.
Money in the Bank was disappointing courtesy of his failed attempt at winning the ladder match, but with no singles bout scheduled for him at Super Show Down, this may be a disastrous decision on WWE Creative’s part.
Drew is being used as Shane’s henchman in his on-going feud with Roman Reigns, which is set to culminate in Saudi Arabia.
