The Wrestling Observer is reporting that original creative plans called for WWE Smackdown star Drew McIntyre to continue his undefeated streak all the way until he received a run with the World Title. However, it’s now being reported that McIntyre has fallen out of favor with several WWE officials as he is said to be a high maintenance performer and he is not getting over as a heel the way WWE had initially hoped. As a result of this, the World Title run went to Jack Swagger instead of McIntyre.
USPTO.gov is showing that WWE has in fact registered and trade marked the names of all 8 rookies from the first season of NXT, which contradicts the Wrestling Observer report that only Otunga, Barrett and Bryan had been trade marked.
