“I’ve been watching what Roman’s been doing over this past year and I might not like how he does things a lot of the time, but he is operating at a different level. He always talks about these levels, and right now he is at the absolute top.”

Last year at Survivor Series, McIntyre gave a hard time to Roman and ‘The Tribal Chief’ really had to fight really hard to gain the upper hand. Therefore, now with McIntyre on SmackDown, the WWE Universe might definitely see a match between Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre.
