This felt like the end of Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler crossing paths on the main roster.
To open the final Monday night Raw of 2018, McIntyre and Ziggler were locked inside of a steel cage. What better way to end an feud than a classic steel cage match?
A lot of times steel cage matches can be more hit than miss but on New Year’s Eve, both McIntyre and Ziggler put on a hell of a match.
Things are starting to get competitive in this #SteelCage Match! Will it be @HEELZiggler or @DMcIntyreWWE who comes out on TOP on #Raw?? pic.twitter.com/3Rp9MvBgeD— WWE (@WWE) January 1, 2019
Then McIntyre did this.
At more than a few points in the match-up McIntyre looked and acted like a future WWE Universal champion. Coupled with his imposing physical appearance, McIntyre brought another level of physicality to his match with Ziggler tonight (Dec. 31).
After Ziggler hit a Zig-Zag out of nowhere for a two and half count, McIntyre would go on to hit two Claymore kicks for the finish.

Post-match McIntyre would hit two more Claymore kicks and just wiped out Ziggler completely.
Apparently, @DMcIntyreWWE is NOT finished with @HEELZiggler. #Raw pic.twitter.com/JpU0m3NvvA— WWE (@WWE) January 1, 2019
Only four weeks away from the 2019 Royal Rumble, Drew McIntyre has to be one of the early favorites to win the battle royal.
Is this the end of the McIntyre-Ziggler saga?
