WWE Summerslam 2021 card seems to be getting bigger and bigger. Seven matches were initially part of the card. Six of these are Championship matches and Edge vs Seth Rollins was the only non-title match on the card.

But another non-title bout has been added to the card. Friends turned foes Drew McIntyre will be facing Jinder Mahal at WWE Summerslam 2021. The feud kicked off nearly a month ago and intensified when McIntyre’s ancestral sword was stolen.

This feud even costed a chance to win the WWE Money in the Bank briefcase. During the ladder match, Mahal along with his stable mates Shanky and Veer attacked Drew McIntyre. But this feud isn’t just about the sword, it is much deeper than that.

McIntyre and Mahal’s career trajectory has been quite similar. Both of them were released from the company, and they returned years later to become WWE Champions. But the issue was that while McIntyre’s reign was loved by the fans, Mahal’s reign was quite unwelcomed. Since then, this rivalry has been about jealousy!

McIntyre will battle in a Handicap match on the go-home show for WWE Summerslam 2021
