DX Backing Drew McIntyre, Shane’s Departure A Mystery

— Triple H and Shawn Michaels are said to be allies of young superstar Drew McIntyre and are partilly responsible for his strong push on SmackDown. They feel he has the potential to be the next major star and a talent the company can build around in the future, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Many see the similarities between McIntyre and a younger Triple H, with the height, body build, hair and the same ability. The strong push for McIntyre has upset talent backstage, as some wrestlers have been around for several years and were promised a push if they performed better The general feeling backstage on the Raw brand is that if you do not have the support of Triple H, Shawn Michaels, John Cena or Randy Orton, then your upward mobility on the card is limited.

There’s nothing new to report on Shane McMahon’s resignation from WWE. After speaking with a number of people in WWE, nobody seems to know why he left or what’s next for Shane.

    If they don’t do something about his gimmick than neither HHH nor Michaels won’t help on what is coming for this young wrestler – failure.

    This is a perfect example proving DX are not holding talent back!!

  • rockinyourmom

    That show u Dx does hold talent back as well as cena and orton…There so much talent that deserves it more….Move Shelton to SD and Give him a Main event Push …Morrison maybe? why does drew get the green light cause dx gen old says so?

    i dont blame DX for holding back talent..i blame guys like john cena and batista

    I honestly think McIntyre is a twig. Plus he was awkwardly put in his position on SD. If anyone deserves a push, I think Shelton, Morrison, and Swagger are in line. Benjamin and Moso can get a crowd behind them and Swagger has “the look”, unlike Drew.

    Why is this nobody getting a push when there are so many guys in WWE who are way more talented and have been working thier butts off for so many years and have still not gotten the push that they deserve. Guys like Shelton Benjamin, MVP, Jack Swagger, Evan Bourne, and even John Morrison and The Miz are just a few examples wrestlers who have the potential to lead the WWE into the 2010s and beyond. Instead, they continue to put over the same boring cast of main event talent and trying to force feed guys like this who nobody cares about. WWE really needs to start listening to its fans again or pretty soon, thier gonna end up the same way WCW did.
