Randy Orton is a true veteran in WWE, having worked in the company for almost two decades. Throughout his career he has faced several top Superstars and that includes Drew McIntyre.
The two feuded in 2020 and early 2021 and it involved the WWE Championship. However, it seems Orton wasn’t all that keen on facing McIntyre initially.
While speaking on Broken Skull Sessions, ”Stone Cold” Steve Austin asked Randy Orton regarding his feud with Drew McIntyre. Orton revealed that he had no interest in facing Drew McIntyre inside the squared circle.
However, that would change in good time.
“Originally, I had no interest in being there with him. We got closer and closer and closer and closer and he grew on me. And we had like three or four pay-per-view matches and I slowly learned more about this guy. I did watch y’all sit down when it came out and like, I felt that, I felt that. I got to know him to the point where I know he’s got heart and I know he loves this business and I know that this business has given me everything I have and he feels the same way. And here we are, let’s do what we can to elevate each other and to make what we love as great as we can.”
Orton added that McIntyre is “good” in his books. Orton would defeat McIntyre at last year’s Hell in a Cell PPV for the WWE Championship. McIntyre would regain the WWE Championship a few weeks later on WWE RAW.
