How Long WWE Planned Drew McIntyre’s Heel Turn

This week’s episode of RAW concluded with a competitive Undisputed Universal Tag Team Title match, featuring the Judgment Day facing off against Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso. However, the outcome did not favor the babyfaces. Drew McIntyre made his presence known, and he snuffed out Cody and Jey’s chances to win the titles once again, turning full-on heel in the process.

In an unexpected turn of events, Rhea Ripley made an appearance and exchanged a handshake with Drew McIntyre, solidifying their new partnership. Judgment Day now has a fifth member for their WarGames team at Survivor Series. Now that McIntyre is a true heel, we know how long this was in the works.

Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that WWE had Drew McIntyre’s heel turn in the works for a long time. The report noted that this was the plan for “months.”

“Drew McIntyre’s turn has been planned internally for at least a couple of months.”



We also previously reported that WWE teased a return of Drew McIntyre’s former entrance music. Those Broken Dreams may return, after all. Only time will tell how this heel turn goes.

We will keep a close eye on this story, and everything else going on in the pro wrestling world, right here at Ringside News. WWE has a lot going on, and Drew McIntyre commands a certain amount of focus for a reason.
