Drew McIntyre was the victim of a brutal attack on SmackDown with Roman Reigns and The Bloodline laying waste to the Scottish star.
The main event of SmackDown in Detroit saw The Bloodline’s associate Sami Zayn step up to the plate to face Drew McIntyre. McIntyre survived interference from The Usos to put Zayn away with a Claymore for the win but the battle was far from over.
After the match Unified WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns made his presence felt, nailing his Clash at the Castle challenger with a spear. The Usos then swarmed on Drew McIntyre, laying him out with repeated chair shots before sending him across the announce table at ringside.
WWE on social media has now shared the battle scars of McIntyre following the attack, showing the harsh reality of life as a WWE Superstar.
