**SPOILERS** WWE SmackDown: What's Next for Drew McIntyre?

If you do not want to know what happens on tonight's edition of SmackDown, stop reading now.


As some of you may already know, Drew McIntyre receives his job back on tonight's episode of SmackDown due to John Laurinaitis taking charge.

According to some viewers who were either at the event or have seen the episode already, Laurinaitis offers McIntyre his job back if he can beat, of all people, Hornswoggle.

Drew duly does so and gets his old job back, whilst simultaneously recording his first win on television for nearly a year.

So, what's next for the Sinister Scotsman?

For one, I think this books his place on John Laurinaitis' team for the proposed Long vs. Laurinaitis tag team match at Wrestlemania 28.

McIntyre has been buried and held down for too long now and this match at the biggest show on earth could be his first step on the road back to upper-card success.

When the Chosen One first debuted on SmackDown, he went on an unstoppable unbeaten run, taking the Intercontinental title with him after only a matter of months.

However, after a mediocre feud with Teddy Long, McIntyre dropped the belt in May 2010 and hasn't really done much since.

Despite some interesting stories with Kelly Kelly and Edge brewing in early 2011, WWE seemed to give up on them and so I hope that this is the time that Drew McIntyre receives another solid push.

It might be just because he's my countryman (and also went to the same university), but it's clear to see that McIntyre has the in-ring ability, "look" and charisma to become a successful mid- to upper-carder.

But as we've seen time and time again with the WWE, you can never be sure what path a superstar is going to take.

And that's the bottom line, cos Colin Stone said so!
