“With Roman [Reigns] it’s pretty obvious there is unfinished business. We are a couple of Superstars at the top of our game on our respective brands, we had a cheap finish from the last match with all the interference and the low blow,” McIntyre said, referencing his loss by unfair means to Reigns at Survivor Series 2020.”

‘The Scottish Psychopath’ names Jinder Mahal as his second choice, claiming he has never had a ‘significant’ singles match with the Indian Superstar.

“When you have real history with somebody, even though you’re friends, it’s good to get in there and be competitive with your friends and then hopefully joke about it afterwards and have fun afterwards,” McIntyre explained. “No matter who wins. Obviously with Sheamus things got a little bit personal, hopefully, that wouldn’t happen with Jinder.”

Drew McIntyre is unsure of Daniel Bryan’s status in WWE

Daniel Bryan is the biggest topic in WWE right now, given the speculations over his contract expiring and the like. Fans are not sure if he is still part of the WWE roster. However, Drew McIntyre does not rule out a possible encounter with him.

“I don’t know what’s going on with his future after he lost the match. Maybe he shows up on NXT? Maybe he shows up on Raw? But he and I haven’t got to do much together. Certainly never had anything big, and I think obviously with where we’re at in our careers, it would be something very special,” he admitted.

Drew McIntyre will try to regain his WWE Championship once more at Hell in a Cell after failing to secure the victory at WrestleMania Backlash. This opportunity, although not yet confirmed, may be his last at the prize.

He wants nothing more than a singles showdown with Bobby Lashley with no third party, and that is exactly what the WWE Champion may give him in the weeks to come.
