After eliminating Brock Lesnar, Drew McIntyre would go on to win the whole thing after eliminating Roman Reigns. This marks the first time Drew has won the Rumble. This is also affirming a well deserved push that is long overdue.
Drew has had several persona changes in the past while with WWE, but none have caught on as much as this has. His most recent prior to this was with 3MB, before being let go from WWE on June 12th, 2014. Then he would return to WWE on April 1st, 2017 on the NXT brand until moving up to the main roster in April 2018, aligning himself with Dolph Ziggler.
It seems likely that unless something changes, we will be seeing him facing Lesnar at Wrestlemania 36 in April.
