5) Drew McIntyre – Big E became the WWE Champion in a competitive match against WWE Crown Jewel 2021.
Heading into WWE Crown Jewel 2021, Big E was set to face the toughest challenge of his tenure for the WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre. There has been a lot of tension between the two in the past few weeks as they have had to stay together as team partners. However, their respect for each other was still evident and would surely produce quality competition.
There was a lot of back-and-forth in the WWE Championship battle, and neither man was able to capitalize for long. This is what fans expected from the heavyweight bout between two heavyweight strikers in Big EU and Drew McIntyre.
Here at WWE Crown Jewel 2021 it was a big move after a big move from every competitor. McIntyre hits the Future Shock and the Claymore, but can’t put Big E down for the three. Big E was able to connect with the Big Ending, but Drew tapped out at two. The WWE Champion picked up another big win to retain his title by defeating the Scottish warrior.
Big E won the WWE Championship just last month and defended the title against Bobby Lashley twice. The Crown Jewel 2021 competition has shown that the New Day member has what it takes to take on WWE’s top stars. With the new superstars on Raw, Big E will have a lot of new obstacles, so this win helped establish himself as the brand’s top star.
