‘The Scottish Psychopath’ Drew McIntyre has spoken out about vowing to end Goldberg’s streak of victorious returns in WWE.
The streak the current WWE Champion is talking about dates all the way back to 2016 when the master of the Jackhammer returned to the company and defeated Brock Lesnar in minutes at Survivor Series. Goldberg then continued, defeating Kevin Owens in 2017, Dolph Ziggler in 2019 and ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt in 2020.
On January 31 at the Royal Rumble, Goldberg aims to add Drew McIntyre to that list but the Scot has other plans as he told Sportskeeda in a sit-down interview:
“He’s on a new streak where he comes back to the company and he wins the title and so I’m looking to end that new streak he’s on right now. He comes back, he can fight me at the Rumble but with all the respect in the world for him, and it hurts me to say it, but Goldberg I’m going to have to kick your head off and beat you because you ain’t winning my title. I’m ending the streak.
No matter what anyone might think or anyone might say about Goldberg, look at what’s happened every time he’s returned to the company. He keeps himself in shape, he’s an animal, he’s explosive, he ran through Brock Lesnar, won the Universal Championship, he ran through The Fiend and won the Universal Championship.”
Prior to the January 11 edition of Monday Night Raw, Drew McIntyre was diagnosed with COIVD-19 but was cleared to compete on the January 22 tapings for the incoming WWE Superstar Spectacular which will air on January 26 on the WWE Network.
Both champion and challenger will meet in the middle of the ring one final time before the Royal Rumble on the January 25 edition of Monday Night Raw.
