Drew McIntyre will go one on one with Jinder Mahal at SummerSlam.
The friends turned rivals have been on a collision course for a number of weeks with tension escalating with every passing day.
Upset at the opportunities that have come the way of the Scottish Warrior, Mahal and his henchmen destroyed McIntyre’s prized sword. In retaliation, The Scot destroyed Mahal’s motorbike.
At Money In The Bank, Mahal cost McIntyre a shot at glory, pulling him from a ladder just as it seemed the Scottish star was heading to victory. Mahal alongside Shanky and Veer dragged McIntyre out of the match and to the backstage area.
On RAW the following night, McIntyre sought revenge attacking the three men with a chair. Shanky caught the worst of the former World Champion’s aggression being nailed 34 times by the chair wielding Scotsman.
With no sign of a de-escalation in the rivalry, the grudge match has now been made for SummerSlam.
