Drew McIntyre BEATS Seth Rollins to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion at WrestleMania 40…but loses it to Damien Priest moments later thanks to CM Punk!

Drew McIntyre’s future with the company is still up in the air, but he at least though he now held a valuable bargaining chip after winning the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 40 – and he did, for about three minutes.

The Scot opened night two with Seth Rollins and immediately hit him with a Claymore Kick to kick off the match.

It was a fast-pace affair with both men emptying their tanks from the get-go. Rollins did hit a pedigree and he landed a stomp onto the top of the announce table, but four claymore kicks over the course of the match is what it took to get the job done.

But after CM Punk attacked a gloating McIntyre, Priest took advantage of the beat down and cashed in his Money in the Bank contract.

Punk even whipped off his arm brace during the attack – and hit McIntyre with it – but he’s still not expected to truly compete for a few months yet.

Priest got McIntyre in the ring and all it took was one chokeslam for the 41-year-old to get the job done.

The Judgment Day man has held onto the briefcase for 10 months and picked the perfect moment in front of 70,000-plus fans in Philadelphia.

It was only one night earlier where Priest lost the undisputed tag team titles.

McIntyre’s WWE deal is still set to expire at the end of May and while there is hope an agreement can be reached, nothing has been signed thus far.

The Scottish Warrior has discussed extending his deal just so he can perform at Clash at the Castle: Scotland in June.

However, there is every hope the two sides can still negotiate a long-term deal.

With a feud against a returning CM Punk in the offing, one would think he has heavy incentive to stay.
