WWE Champion Drew McIntyre is set to take part in a segment with his Money in the Bank challenger on this coming Monday’s episode of Raw.
During SmackDown tonight, a commercial aired advertising that McIntyre and Seth Rollins will have a contract signing for their title match at Money in the Bank on Monday’s Raw. Money in the Bank is set for Sunday, May 10.
McIntyre defending his WWE Championship against Rollins at the pay-per-view was made official on Raw this Monday. After being attacked by Rollins the previous week and laid out with a superkick and two curb stomps, McIntyre challenged Rollins to face him at Money in the Bank. A video then aired later where Rollins accepted McIntyre’s challenge.
In his promo, Rollins said he wasn’t accepting the challenge out of respect or disdain — but out of necessity. Rollins said he and McIntyre have a lot in common, but the WWE universe needs a leader now more than ever. Rollins said he’s a proven leader and McIntyre isn’t.
McIntyre became the WWE Champion by defeating Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36. His first title defense was against Big Show. It aired on the post-WrestleMania episode of Raw, with WWE saying it was exclusive footage from after McIntyre won the title from Lesnar on the second night of WrestleMania.
