WWE Summerslam: Drew McIntyre can now take a sigh of relief as he would be taking on Jinder Mahal at WWE Summerslam one-on-one, without his sidekicks Veer & Shanky present at the ringside.- This would be a massive advantage for Drew McIntyre, and Veer & Shanky could have easily cost him his match against the Modern Day Maharaja.
WWE Summerslam: Veer & Shanky banned from the ringside
Drew McIntyre faced Veer & Shanky in a 2-on-1 handicap match on tonight’s WWE Raw go-home episode of Summerslam. The match was made interesting with a stipulation that if Drew loses, he can’t bring her heritage sword, Angela, to the PPV event. However, if he wins, Veer & Shanky will be banned from the ringside.
The match started off with Drew completely annihilating Veer. However, the latter got some space and displayed his offense for a bit before tagging in Shanky. The giant figure of Shanky took things in his hands and floored Drew with a big boot. Just when it seemed like Shanky was in control, Drew returned with a Michinoku Driver to slam Shanky back first.
Drew then looked to wrap up things quickly by hitting Veer with a Future Shock DDT followed by a penultimate Claymore to clean up Shanky. A match that promised to be going pretty well ended up as a one-man show. With this win, Drew has ensured that at WWE Summerslam, Jinder Mahal will be on his own.
