WWE Champion Drew McIntyre Says He Wants To Face Universal Champion Roman Reigns In Title Versus Title Match

Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre met at WrestleMania 35

Drew McIntyre has really arrived as a main event player since becoming WWE Champion at WrestleMania 36, and that’s not always a given.

The Scot has been a mainstay on Monday nights and has grown into the top role many assumed he was always destined for.

Over on SmackDown, Roman Reigns returned to WWE and set the wrestling landscape on fire with a heel turn that was long overdue.

Back in 2002, WWE had two world champions for the first time and it stayed that way until the brand split was relaxed in 2013.

In 2016, we got two champions once more with another brand split, but today’s WWE is pretty fluid with many superstars crossing brands.

Speaking with Vicente Beltrán of ViBe & Wrestling, Drew McIntyre says he would love to have a title versus title match with Roman Reigns.

“I think there is a good balance now between all the titles of all the brands. All shows have an Intercontinental Championship that takes you to the Heavyweight Championship or a United States Title that takes you to the next Championship. Obviously, women are represented with their respective titles and the Tag Titles so I think we are well stocked,” McIntyre said.

“If I could only have one title I would like to have a super match with Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship and create a dominating champion; that would be a tremendous match.

“Roman Reigns is the guy who has proven his worth for many years and even though he has had a short period of absence, has returned with a different attitude, a new look, bigger and stronger than he ever was and he still has a talent for framing and that’s what I want to show, that I can be the Superstar that he is and it is inevitable that in the future we will have a match between Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns, title versus title, that would be the biggest match.”

If WWE wanted to unify the title, it would make life difficult for whoever the champion was. But, a unification match with two huge stars will always sell, too!
