The Right Decision
At Wrestlemania it seemed like Bobby Lashley was unquestionably going to lose his championship to Drew McIntyre. After seeing The Hurt Business restructuring it was clear that Lashley needed something to help rebuild momentum and seeing Drew McIntyre on the chase for a bit would be something fresh. In my opinion, I think that WWE chose to keep the title on Lashley to avoid fans thinking that the obvious would happen. McIntyre has been on the champion side of things for the better part of a year since last Wrestlemania.
Lashley has earned a long reign as WWE Champion and now the next step is the Hurt Business reconstruction as MVP said the THB is anything but done. Finding new members for the group would be the best way to try and keep things fresh for a group that has done wonders for it's members. Seeing Cedric and Shelton remain a tag team even though they are gone from the Hurt Business would still make sense due to the lack of depth within the tag team division. I do believe that they also shouldn't rush to find new members of the group and instead should set the long story with MVP scouting talent on Raw and NXT to find the right members to fill in the group. I know that WWE doesn't like long term story telling, but there is no reason rushing into something big like this that could produce solid ratings if done right.
As for Drew McIntyre it will be something that allows the company to move in a different direction for a little while with Drew not being World Champion. Lashley has plenty of talent to compete against at least until Summerslam and there is no reason he can't work as champion until Summerslam. According to the WWE PPV list the next event is Money in the Bank coming in May it will be interesting to see who will be in Money in the Bank this time around. The only question left to ask is will Lashley & McIntyre meet again at Money in the Bank?
