Drew McIntyre is one of the top names in WWE right now. The former WWE Champion is set to face Roman Reigns at Clash in the Castle, where he will aim to topple the Tribal Chief to win the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.  

The match will take place on Saturday, September 3rd, where Reigns will put both his titles on the line against the Scottish Warrior. Since Reigns is now performing in a part-time capacity, McIntyre thinks that he is much more fit to represent the company as a full-time wrestler.

During a discussion on After The Bell with Corey Graves, McIntyre stated that WWE’s titles need a champion who is available at all times, unlike Reigns, who is a part-timer now. The challenger said he is two steps ahead of Reigns because he can defend the titles more and be the face of the company consistently:

“Roman is a huge star. He’s worked really hard to get where he’s at. He’s done some incredible work for these past 10 straight years with these past two years being unbelievable, but, he has taken a step back… That limited schedule has allowed me to take two steps forward because I believe the titles need to be represented on a television show, defended on a more regular basis, and shown in our media appearances on the live events, and that’s the difference right there.”


It remains to be seen if Reigns will drop the titles at Clash at the Castle. A report suggests that there are plans to have Reigns face off against The Rock at WrestleMania 39.
