Drew McIntyre vs Roman Reigns

In the interview, DAZN News talked about the dream match between McIntyre and Roman Reigns. Their match for Survivor Series did not get a massive build.

It was very short and didn’t get the big-match feel that it deserved. DAZN News asked, “Maybe I’m wrong here, and you can correct me if I’m wrong, but the big match in WWE that people do want to see is between you and Roman Reigns.

To this, McIntyre quickly replied, “I hope so because that’s the big match I’d like to see down the line. We only had a few weeks or f-that, I think we had like three shows. Yeah, it wasn’t included. We didn’t have much time to build it. But I know the chemistry has always been there with Roman and I, especially where I’m at as a character now, and he’s doing the most unbelievable work right now. It clicked right away. We have such interesting stories, and we’re feeling as good as I’ve ever felt as characters right now. That was cool to give everyone a taste of it. I know it’d be awesome to come back around to it. I just love watching what Roman’s up to right now.”

McIntyre praises Roman

McIntyre revealed that he is a big fan of ‘The Big Dog‘ and added that the work he is doing right now is unbelievable.

“He’s feeling it. He knows where he’s at as a character, and it’s pretty much the opposite of what he used to be. Where he used to be is where I’m at right now in being the fighting champion, putting the work, and being the workhorse. It’s interesting how those roles are flipped. I’m excited about the possibility of what we can do down the line because he’s absolutely killing it right now. I’m just going to keep doing it. If people want to see it, but us back together, give us time and watch us go.”

DAZN News pitched an idea for the match to take place at WrestleMania 38. Drew jokingky replied,

“I’m sold. That’s a genius idea. I’m going to get Vince (McMahon) on the phone. You pitch it to him, and let’s make it happen.”
