He’s up next. The main event of this weekend’s WrestleMania 38 will feature one of the most important matches in recent WWE history. Both the WWE and Universal Titles will be on the line as Brock Lesnar faces Roman Reigns in a winner take all showdown. That is going to leave one champion above everyone else, but that champion is going to need a challenger. Someone has already thrown his hat into the ring.
In an interview with the Hindustan Times, former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre said that he wants to be the first challenger to whoever comes out of WrestleMania with the title. McIntyre said that he needs to work his way up the ladder to become the new #1 contender. McIntyre defeated Lesnar at WrestleMania 36 to win the WWE Title and faced Roman Reigns at Survivor Series 2020.
Opinion: I don’t see anything wrong with this as McIntyre getting back into the title picture is not exactly the biggest stretch. I could go for seeing McIntyre against either of these guys, if nothing else for the sake of wondering who else the challenger could be. Let McIntyre be built back up and be the star that he can be against either of the monster champions.
What do you think of the idea? Who would you rather see McIntyre face? Let us know in the comments below.
