By the time Survivor Series 2020 came, both Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns’ characters changed very much. Reigns established his Tribal Cheif Character and was a heel after a long time. McIntyre turned face earlier that year and defeated Brock Lesnar to become WWE Champion. The anticipation for this match was so much that WWE cut short Randy Orton’s title reign and put the title back on McIntyre just a week before Survivor Series.
This was by far the best match between them as they headlined Survivor Series. After going back and forth throughout the match, Roman had Drew in the Guillotine but Drew shoved him into the corner to break it. After a while, Drew put Roman in an armbar. The action spilled to the floor and Roman put Drew through the announce table with a Samoan drop before hitting a spear through the barricade. But, Drew managed to kick out of the pin. Drew countered a spear with Claymore which also knocked out the referee. Roman then hit Drew with a low blow before putting on Guillotine to put Roman to sleep to win the match.
