When information broke that Drew McIntyre was booked for a match with Sheamus to resolve who would get first dibs towards the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at Conflict on the Fort, it felt bizarre.
Why line up one other contender for a pair of belts which might be already being wrestled for at SummerSlam? Why accomplish that now, in early July, when the match isn’t going to happen till September? And why have McIntyre go towards Sheamus? Certain, they’re each from Europe – England, and Eire respectively – however does that imply they’re any extra worthy of the match than, say, Riddle, who additionally misplaced within the Males’s Cash within the Financial institution Ladder Match?
Effectively worry not WWE followers, for a contender was not but determined as a result of the match didn’t occur. That’s proper, one month after watching McIntyre and Sheamus earn double disqualifications in a qualifying match for Cash within the Financial institution, McIntyre needed to wrestle Butch in a match that was presupposed to each function Sheamus and be for a spot within the Conflict on the Fort essential occasion.
*sigh* why does WWE have to do that?

On paper, extending a feud between McIntyre and Sheamus isn’t the worst factor possible; the duo have been feuding for years and can proceed to feud for years to come back however why not simply have the duo wrestle one another with a spot within the Conflict on the Fort essential occasion as the ultimate prize? Why even deliver up CatC now, with SummerSlam nonetheless nearly a month away? Make it make sense folks – make it make sense.
