WWE Reportedly Planning To Push Drew McIntyre As Top Star On RAW Brand

WWE has some interesting plans in mind for "The Scottish Psychopath," according to recent reports making the rounds.

According to Dave Meltzer on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio at F4WOnline.com, WWE is back to pushing Drew McIntyre as a top star.

On WWE RAW this past Monday night, McIntyre battled Ricochet in his first match back since undergoing minor undisclosed surgery, picking up the big win in his return bout.

WWE is reportedly looking to strengthen McIntyre again by getting him going with a push whereas Ricochet is looked at more of a "long term project."

This would be one of the main reasons why McIntyre was booked not only to beat Ricochet, but to beat him up on the way out.

The other possibility is that McIntyre vs. Ricochet could be a program that WWE carries through the Crown Jewel PPV in Saudi Arabia (both wrestlers are involved in the Team Hogan vs. Team Flair match).
