Drew McIntyre Says Not Right Now To Cinematic Match With The Fiend


WWE Champion Drew McIntyre has opened up about the possibility of a ‘cinematic’ match against Bray Wyatt.

Drew recently sat down with Sportskeeda’s Riju Dasgupta for an interview in which the idea of a cinematic match was brought up. Whether McIntyre would want to defend his WWE Championship in such a match is quite clear, “The Scottish Psychopath” pointing out the strides he has taken to give authenticity to his Title.

Maybe eventually, not right now. I’m WWE Champion and I think, in fact I know, like the way I’ve been building the title, it’s about the honour and respect and about wrestling.

There’s room on the show for everything, a little bit something for everybody, different characters. It’d be boring if everyone was the same and The Fiend’s unique character is so incredible, so out there, but I don’t think that’s something I think I want to mix the WWE title with.

Like that’s for, you know that portion of the audience and for me as a fan to watch and be blown away by the spectacle. But when it comes to the WWE Championship, I expect it to be in a wrestling match. You know, like man-on-man, fighting over the title with respect and honour. And that’s what I’m all about, that’s how I’ve tried to represent the title and that’s how I think it should be represented. Not in a comedic fashion or an outlandish fashion, but a realistic wrestling environment.

Drew McIntyre hasn’t been involved in any cinematic matches in his WWE career, so far. Drew stating that he doesn’t want to mix the WWE Championship with the environment of a cinematic match just now – not closing the door entirely but certainly full-stopping the idea in the short term.

Drew will face Jinder Mahal at the WWE’s Superstar Spectacle PPV on 26th January 2021, before lacing his boots up once again just 5 days later at the Royal Rumble PPV where he will clash with Goldberg for his WWE Championship.
