Last night on WWE RAW, Drew McIntyre regained the WWE Championship against Randy Orton to mark his second reign with the championship.
Drew, from Ayrshire, won his first WWE Championship at WrestleMania by defeating Brock Lesnar to become the first Scottish, and by extension British, world champion in the companies history. The match happened in front of no crowd due to the restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Randy Orton defeated McIntyre in an epic hell in the cell match at the named event last month to end his first reign at 202 days, but has quickly bounced back after avoiding an rKo and booting Orton with a Claymore to win back the championship, this time in front of the WWE Universe crowd via the WWE Thunderdome virtual screens.
This was the first time the WWE Championship has changed hands on RAW since 2015 when Roman Reigns defeated Sheamus in a title vs career match.
Days after Scotland’s men’s football team qualified for their first major tournament in 22 years, Drew adds some more good news with his title win.
He will go on to face the WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at Survivor Series in a cross-brand non-title match on November 22nd.
