Without a doubt, the most under-reported event that happened on Monday Night Raw was the inclusion of Drew McIntyre on Team Johnny at Wrestlemania. Drew has had a very poor year and simply does not deserve a spot on “the grandest stage of them all.”
Drew McIntyre was chosen by John Laurentius to replace Christian, who was injured on Monday Night Raw. The idea of McIntyre replacing someone of the caliber of Christian is laughable.
Clearly Drew McIntyre is a talented wrestler. He was even singled out by Mr. McMahon a couple of years ago as the future of the WWE. However, the casual fan will notice that he has not lived up to his expectations.
Drew’s inclusion on Team Johnny at Wrestlemania is one that truly came from nowhere. He has not been a focal point on WWE television and would not be on the short list of anyone analyzing who should be part of Wrestlemania.
Drew becoming part of this match does nothing for the credibility of the team, nor does it help drew to ride from his current status. Being part of a team that includes Mark Henry, Jack Swagger, Dolph Ziggler, David Otunga and The Miz only shows how low he rates compared to these men.
Though the inclusion of Drew McIntyre will not single handedly destroy Wrestlemania 28. However it creates a situation where the poor placement of Drew McIntyre makes him look second rate. Time will tell whether this match really makes a huge impact on the card. However, everyone on Wrestlemania should have a purpose, not just a last-minute choice.
