WWE Extreme Rules 2022 Predictions: Karrion Kross Will Bury Drew McIntyre

5 of 5

Drew McIntyre vs. Karrion Kross [Extreme Rules Match]

Karrion Kross will defeat Drew McIntyre in the main event of WWE Extreme Rules 2022 because he simply needs to win his PPV debut on the main roster in order to solidify his main event status. Kross has clearly been more obsessed with crushing the world title dreams of Drew McIntyre than actually winning the world title from Roman Reigns.

Nonetheless, this victory over McIntyre will set up Kross for a future world title opportunity whilst McIntyre gets sent back to the upper midcard vortex. In fact, McIntyre is the most likely candidate on SmackDown to dethrone Gunther.

After McIntyre lost to Reigns for the fourth time at Clash at the Castle, his world title dreams are basically over. There is no reason for McIntyre to hinder Kross’ momentum after his own momentum has been completely shut down by Reigns.

Kross will finish the job Reigns started and put McIntyre to rest. The main event scene is eminently boring with Reigns as champion right now, especially since he won’t even be defending the title on PPVs like this one. However, a triple threat amongst Reigns, McIntyre, and Kross will likely be booked for the Crown Jewel show in November.
