Drew McIntyre says he was booked to win Money In The Bank at WrestleMania 26. The former WWE Champion was not told about the change of plans.
Drew McIntyre recently revealed that his original plans for Wrestlemania 26 was to face the Undertaker. That match did not happen unfortunately. Instead, the Dead man went on to face Shawn Michaels in a career vs streak no disqualification match while McIntyre competed in the Money in the Bank match.
Writing in A Chosen Destiny, Mcintyre revealed that he was told that he would the Money in the Bank match in advance. As the event drew nearer however, it became clear to him that he wasn’t winning it. The worse bit for him however, was that he wasn’t informed of the decision leading him to feel like he was being elbowed aside.

“I was told in advance I would be winning the Money in the Bank match. To beat nine fellow Superstars for the coveted contract would have been a massive deal and the next logical stage for my spoiled character.
“What was disappointing was that it became clear that I wasn’t winning the Money in the Bank match after all – because it was ‘too obvious’. The change of plan wasn’t communicated to me or explained. It just happened, and I felt elbowed aside.
“In the event, Jack ‘the All-American American’ Swagger took the honours, defeating Christian, Dolph Ziggler, Evan Bourne, Kane, Kofi Kingston, Matt Hardy, MVP, Shelton Benjamin and me.
“As I’ve said, I’m good at blocking out negative thoughts, but in retrospect I see that episode as a bit of a double-whammy for a young guy just concentrating on trying to figure out himself, his character and his responsibility to make the most of this new high-profile position he found himself in.”
All’s well that ends well and in the end it worked out very well for McIntyre. The Scottish Warrior is a two-time WWE Champion and will face Bobby Lashley and Braun Strowman in a triple threat match for the WWE title at Wrestlemania Backlash.
