One of the big names missing from this year’s SummerSlam was none other than the Scottish Psychopath, Drew McIntyre. Elias was the Special Guest Enforcer for Shane McMahon and Kevin Owens – a role that could have easily been played by Drew McIntyre.
However, he was not on the show as it appears that the direction for McIntyre at the moment is that he is being kept strong by being kept away for a bit.
“They definitely wanted to protect Drew McIntyre. He was nowhere to be seen.”Dave Meltzer
WWE had considered adding McIntyre to the card against Cedric Alexander, but the match was not announced.
