Drew McIntyre is considered one of the top Superstars in WWE and there is no doubt he has a ton of passion for the pro wrestling business. He is a former two-time WWE Champion and was the face of the company during the pandemic era as the WWE Champion. McIntyre is always open to giving advice to his peers whenever they need it.
Ever since the Royal Rumble pay-per-view last year, Drew McIntyre was featured in the WWE Championship picture and that includes numerous title matches against Bobby Lashley. Many fans felt McIntyre has been in the title picture for far too long.
McIntyre lost to Bobby Lashley during this year’s Hell In A Cell pay-per-view and that finally brought an end to him being in the WWE Title picture all the time, much to the relief of fans.
While speaking to Ariel Helwani of BT Sport, Drew McIntyre was asked about his constant challenges for the WWE Champion after losing at WrestleMania 37. McIntyre added that he believes he had too many title shots during his feud with Bobby Lashley.
“It was weird because generally, the good guy, is the one chasing and that’s where the excitement is. I felt for a long period that as champion, that’s where I was meant to be and the chase was exciting from Rumble to Mania when I beat Brock, but there was a period where I felt ‘I’m meant to be. I’m meant to be champion.’ During the Lashley stuff, perhaps the way we set up the matches, perhaps the narrative of ‘Drew keeps getting title matches’ that we were pushing for some reason, didn’t exactly help during that period. Perhaps I could have gotten out of the title scene a little quicker after I lost the first match and didn’t have a couple of follow-up matches and started the rebuild again.”
WWE is currently building towards a feud between Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre. Before that, McIntyre will be squaring off against Madcap Moss at WWE Day 1 on January 1st, 2022. We will have to wait and see when Reigns and McIntyre will duke it out once again.
