Drew McIntyre defeated Jinder Mahal at WWE SummerSlam 2021

WWE showed Drew McIntyre strong throughout the storyline

Remind you that WWE showed Drew McIntyre strong throughout this storyline. In almost all segments, Jinder Mahal, Veer and Shanky would either escape backstage or McIntyre would have single-handedly thrashed Veer and Shanky.

At the same time, the ban of Veer and Shanky from this match after the defeat in the handicap match on Raw was also not a good sign for Jinder. It was clear that McIntyre’s chances of winning at SummerSlam were high. Jinder could have made some big upsets to win, but he is the heel and his teammates weren’t even there to cheat on him in this match. McIntyre is one of Raw’s biggest babyface superstars, so a clean win by Jinder Mahal could have done a lot of damage to the character of the Scottish superstar.

To show Drew McIntyre strong even without a championship

As we mentioned earlier, Drew McIntyre is one of Raw’s main babyface superstars and a loss to him would be a direct loss to the company. Though he is not involved in any championship storyline yet, he is sure to be involved in some title feud in the coming few months. Therefore, to keep his character interesting till then, it was necessary for him to win this match.

People were not liking the character of Jinder Mahal much.

We are all aware that Jinder Mahal has always been booed by the WWE crowd, so he has been playing the role of a heel wrestler for most of his career. In this storyline too, the circumstances remained the same, in which the palace did not get any special response. The more interesting the character of a wrestler, the higher the chances of getting success in the ring, but the current situation was not conducive for the victory of the palace.

This win will make Drew McIntyre’s character interesting again

Drew McIntyre was out of the WWE Championship feud after the Hell in a Cell PPV. He has been a part of the title feud since Royal Rumble 2020, either as a champion or as a challenger. Fans were also getting bored of seeing him being a part of the championship storyline for so long. That is, before joining any top card storyline again, he needed a mild change in character and good momentum.
