Drew McIntyre has certainly come a long way and honed his craft after debuting in WWE way back in 2007. McIntyre reinvited himself after his initial release back in 2014 and came back, better than ever. He also opened up about WWE holding off on his match against Roman Reigns.

For the past few weeks, Roman Reigns has been engaged in a feud with Drew McIntyre. The Scottish Warrior is certainly no stranger to The Tribal Chief either. However, they never had their title match as it was postponed for a later event.

While speaking with CBS Sports ahead of WrestleMania Backlash, Drew McIntyre opened up about WWE holding off on his title match against Reigns. McIntyre said that the delay has only built more anticipation for the future clash.

“It’s awesome to be back around… Roman Reigns and The Bloodline have been doing incredible things for a couple of years. Literally running the industry when it comes to Roman and for McIntyre to step back into that picture, but also to be side-by-side with Randy and Riddle who have been having the time of their life this past year, I’ve never seen Randy so happy in the ring and out of the ring.


It’s cool to be involved in that picture. The tag title scene has been so interesting with those two tag teams going at it. With the addition of myself and Roman, you get an interesting dynamic and you get to delay that match.

I know everyone wants everything right now. Now you get an interesting wrinkle to the equation and then you get to delay that match that’s going to then build even more anticipation and when it happens, maybe even in a stadium or somewhere else down the line with more elements added to the story, if you finally get that match — I assume that will eventually happen — it’ll be an even bigger deal.”

Drew McIntyre and Team RK-Bro were unable to defeat Roman Reigns and The Usos at WrestleMania Backlash. We will have to wait and see when McIntyre and Reigns will duke it out in a singles match.
