Drew McIntyre Explains How He Planned His Iconic Moment With WWE Legend The Undertaker

The segment started with Drew McIntyre coming out to the ring to hype up his match with Roman Reigns. He weaved a fictional future where he becomes the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion and listed off dream matches as the champ. As he finished listing Raw superstars, out came Kevin Owens.

Demanding the respect that he deserves, Kevin Owens went off on a passionate rant about his love for wrestling. Absolutely screaming off the mic, Owens stopped, but this lead to McIntyre’s moment of fire on the mic. The No. 1 contender delivers the line of the show, “We’re wrestlers in a wrestling ring, so let’s wrestle.” Breaking the longtime rule under Vince McMahon, where wrestlers were not allowed to call the sport wrestling or use any of the related terms.
