Monday night on Raw will bring us the second part of this year’s WWE Draft and someone keeping a close eye on it is current WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre.
During a recent chat with Mike Jones on Washington radio station DC101, McIntyre didn’t hold back on discussing who he’d like to see make the switch from the blue brand to the red.
I’d be a bit curious if Sheamus and I end up on the same show. We’ve known each other since I was 19 and he was about 47 [laugh] he’s been there through all the ups and downs of my life. If you check out the 24 special on myself and my career, it’ll kind of take you through the story. You’ll see how important Sheamus has been to my life and career. I think if we get the opportunity to do something pretty special. I want Braun Strowman as well. He’s a big man, I want to give him a big beating.
Another wrestler he mentioned going up against was the current WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, which got the attention of Triple H who had the following to say:
The draft is always an exciting time because it creates these, I think in some ways, fantasy moments. Like 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 vs. Drew McIntyre is a Hulk Hogan/Ric Flair scenario, it’s a The Rock/Stone Cold Steve Austin scenario. And you don’t want to hit that before it peaks. But 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.
Back to the interview and Mike Jones also mentioned next year’s WrestleMania to McIntyre and if he could potentially face The Undertaker.
In his Last Ride documentary on the WWE Network, he [The Undertaker] said he will always come when Vince McMahon calls. So, every single week, I prod Vince McMahon to ‘make the call, make the call!’
Just to mention that whether it’s Sheamus, Braun, Reigns or the Undertaker, we’re there for it all! The full interview can be heard below:
