Drew McIntyre has had some incredible opponents at WrestleMania, but he’s yet to receive the match he wants against Triple H.
Making his WrestleMania debut with 2010’s WrestleMania XXVI, Drew McIntyre has since faced some huge names at ‘The Showcase of the Immortals’. Despite this, ‘The Scottish Warrior’ has revealed the one dream WrestleMania opponent he never got; Triple H.
During a recent chat with talkSPORT’s Alex McCarthy, Drew McIntyre discussed pitching a WrestleMania story with ‘The Game’ at every possible opportunity, but unfortunately was unable to ever get the chance (h/t Sportskeeda Wrestling):
“I pitched at every opportunity I could. How about us at WrestleMania? ‘What’s the story?’ [Triple H said] and I’d say ‘What’s the story? We’ll figure it out, but what about you and me at WrestleMania?!’ How awesome would that be? We got in the ring together a few times during my first run but when I returned, we did do a match in Japan that was really cool. We got in the ring together, we didn’t have anything in mind and we just went for it. It was cool to go back and forth a little bit and you understand just how good he is, what a ring general he is.”
Drew McIntyre was able to share the ring with Triple H prior to ‘The Cerebral Assassin’ retiring from the ring, as they were on opposing sides of the ring during an eight-man tag team match in Tokyo, Japan in June 2019. This saw Triple H, alongside The Club, defeat Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley, Samoa Joe, and Baron Corbin.
Drew McIntyre has currently wrestled at seven WrestleManias, with a 3-4 record. His ‘Mania victories came at WrestleMania XXVIII as a part of Team Johnny, WrestleMania 36 as he won the WWE Championship for the first time, and most recently, WrestleMania 38 where he pinned Happy Corbin.
Triple H, meanwhile, has headlined seven of the twenty-one WrestleManias he’s participated in, having faced a plethora of WWE legends and Hall of Famers at ‘The Show of Shows’. His most recent outing at the event saw him defeat Batista at WrestleMania 35 in what marked both wrestlers’ final televised in-ring appearance.
