This week, Triple H was on the WWE Raw panel at New York Comic Con. He spoke about how the WWE Draft is an exciting time, and the “fantasy moments” that it could lead to. Talking about the potential for Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre to end up on the same brand, he said:
“I’ll be honest I don’t want to see Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns yet. I would love to see that percolate because I think that a couple of years down the road Roman Reigns versus Drew McIntyre is a Hulk Hogan/Ric Flair scenario, is a Rock/‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin scenario, and you don’t want to hit that before it peaks. That’s what makes the draft so exciting to me is those moments in time where you were like, ‘well, what if?’ and then ‘what if’ becomes a reality.”
The two superstars have had a one-on-one match before, at WrestleMania 35 last year. In that encounter, the ‘Big Dog’ came out on top. Since then, both Reigns and McIntyre have changed significantly. The ‘Scottish Psychopath’ having won his first WWE Universal Championship at this year’s WrestleMania and taken on all challengers. Meanwhile, Reigns has aligned himself with Paul Heyman and taken a darker turn in his feud with his cousin, Jey Uso.
When the two do meet in the ring again, there’s every chance it will meet Triple H’s lofty expectations.
The WWE Draft continues this Monday night on WWE Raw. For all the news and results, keep checking back at ITRWrestling.com
