Editor's note: I don't have WWE 12 the video game, I've never played it, and had no idea this was one of the storylines. Thanks!
It seems as if the WWE has something up its (their) sleeve for Drew McIntyre. At least I hope they do. His losing streak as of late has been the focus of a mini storyline. Maybe it's going to take him to bigger and better things, but if it doesn't, I submit this plan for your approval.
It's by no means an original idea, I've talked about it with friends before and I'm sure others have had similar thoughts. But I think this idea would bring several missing elements in the WWE back to the table. I would create a new stable called "The European Union", members would include of course McIntyre, along with Wade Barrett, Mason Ryan, Layla, and manager William Regal. I considered adding Sheamus into the mix, but right now the WWE seems pretty high on him as a face, so I'll let them have him.

Of course putting this plan into place would require the WWE creative team to come up with storylines and angles for the EU and not botch it up. Considering the track record of the Nexus, the New Nexus, the Corre, and the Straight Edge Society; I'm not too hopeful.
