Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley Trade Shots on Twitter a Week Before Their WWE Championship Match

Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley will clash at the Backlash pay-per-view on June 14 over the WWE Championship. And while the pair haven't exchanged many words on television (with MVP doing most of the talking for Lashley), the same cannot be said for social media. On Sunday the pair traded verbal jabs over their upcoming match, starting with the challenger.

One more week. Your story was fun @DMcIntyreWWE, but that's all it is: A story," Lashley wrote, posting a photo of himself holding the WWE title. "My prophecy has been written for YEARS. I am the TRUE 'Chosen One'. Time to dominate."

"How cute, you bought a replica, about as close as you'll be getting to the title. Seth's side plates as well, your fate will be the same as his," McIntyre responded. "'The Chosen One' was 11-years-ago, since then I've been released, came back, & became Champion. The fans chose me. What have you done?"
