Last night's episode of RAW opened with Drew McIntyre once again discussing everything he's been through recently and it took Sami Zayn, his opponent for the evening, no time at all to respond to his many complaints.
Things quickly got heated and their match kicked off the show. At some point during the bout, Zayn tweaked his knee and the referee intervened to check on him.
McIntyre wasn't holding back, though, and picked that moment to deliver a Claymore and earn the win. It was a pretty heel-ish way to land the 1-2-3, but in a backstage segment with Zayn seeking medical advice, the former WWE Champion once again attacked him in a bid to put his opponent on the injured list.
RAW was main evented by World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins defending his title against Jey Uso and, ultimately, it was the Visionary who managed to pick up the win and retain the belt.
However, as a disappointed Jey stepped out of the ring, he was taken out by McIntyre and a Claymore. Rollins tried and failed to help, leaving the Scotsman to send the former Bloodline member crashing through the announce table.
And with that, he's very much a heel!
Earlier this year, McIntyre opened up on his desire to break bad again and suggested he has more fun as a villain.
"Staying on the path I'm on right now, I want to make sure I get interesting and compelling stories. It's cool coming out and getting the cheers. I always want to be in something interesting and get you emotionally invested as well. There was a period where I wasn't doing that, and thankfully I got back into it when I got with Sheamus and leading into that triple threat. I want to make sure to keep evolving and keep adding layers to that character and doing all the cool things I get to do outside the ring and get that title reign in front of fans, finally."
"The character itself, I'm willing to go any direction that is interesting. People are calling for a heel turn, but I'm not willing to do that unless it makes perfect sense. We have a lot of equity in Drew McIntyre. I show up at Special Olympics and see the effect WWE and McIntyre has on people and I can understand Cena's perspective of not turning. Of course, he's on a higher level and did so much outside the ring, but I can understand where he was coming from. For the right time and right moment and it was entertaining for the fans, I would be about that. One of my favorite runs was outside the company as a heel. When that dark side comes out, it's pretty dark."
