Drew McIntyre vs. MVP
We go back to the ring and Rome introduces Drew McIntyre as man who won the Royal Rumble and will go on to challenge WWE Champion Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania. Drew takes the mic and gets the crowd hyped up for WrestleMania. Drew says Flair already pointed to the sign tonight so he’s going to do one better. Drew calls on the fans to point with him, and everyone points at the sign. Drew says these days Suplex City is located in Claymore country and come WrestleMania, he’s demolishing that bitch to the ground. Drew is interrupted by Paul Heyman, who comes down the ramp with a mic. Heyman works the mic and goes introduce his client but Lesnar isn’t showing. Drew waits for a fight. Fans boo Heyman. Heyman goes on about Lesnar beating Ricochet at Super ShowDown, then beating McIntyre at WrestleMania. McIntyre remains confident and shuts Heyman down.
Heyman, still speaking from the stage, finally introduces MVP and out he comes. MVP says Heyman might not have an issue with Drew, but he does. MVP says he invited Drew to The VIP Lounge last week as an old friend, treated him with respect… fans do the “What!?” treatment. MVP enters the ring and the talk continues. MVP says Drew hit him with a cheap shot last week but he promises to whoop Drew this week and it won’t be a cheap shot. MVP calls for the bell and delivers a cheap shot to Drew anyway. MVP with the big Yakuza Kick in the corner. Drew is upset.
The bell rings and MVP immediately runs into a huge shot from Drew, who isn’t thrilled. Drew tosses MVP into the corner and unloads with strikes. The referee tries to pull him off. Drew runs into an elbow but comes back with a Futureshock DDT out of nowhere for a pop. Drew leads the crowd in a 3-2-1 countdown, then levels MVP with a big Claymore. Drew covers for the pin for the easy win.
Winner: Drew McIntyre
After the match, Drew stands tall as his music hits. Heyman is already nowhere to be seen. We go to replays. Drew poses in the corner and points up at the WrestleMania 36 banner.
