Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre have been engaged in an intense feud for several months now. Since Rollins claimed the World Heavyweight Championship in May last year, the Scottish Warrior has faced two significant setbacks in his attempts to defeat the Visionary. Despite these losses, McIntyre continues to pursue Rollins relentlessly. Recently, McIntyre has called out Rollins, accusing him of being a false leader.

McIntyre’s victory in the Men’s Elimination Chamber match has earned him another opportunity to challenge Rollins for the title. Set for Night 2 of WrestleMania 40, McIntyre is determined to seize the championship from The Visionary.

On this week’s edition of RAW, Drew McIntyre reignited the issue by placing blame on Rollins. McIntyre criticized Rollins for prioritizing the tag team match at WrestleMania over his own title match, suggesting that Rollins failed to recognize the significance of his own championship bout in Philadelphia and missed an opportunity to steal the show.

In a recent interview with The Ringer, Drew McIntyre didn’t mince words when discussing his feelings towards Seth Rollins. McIntyre expressed his disapproval of Rollins’ approach, particularly highlighting what he perceives as a selfish attitude.


McIntyre emphasized Rollins’ lack of true leadership qualities, suggesting that while Rollins may see himself as a leader, his actions don’t align with that role. McIntyre stressed the importance of being present and engaged with the roster, something he feels Rollins falls short on by isolating himself on his tour bus.

“You get the moment, winning the title, your responsibility is to lift up the title. I don’t hate Seth Rollins, he’s not CM Punk, I just don’t like the way he goes about things and his selfish attitude. He doesn’t see it. He thinks he’s a leader, but he’s not, he’s about himself. A true leader is about the roster and about democracy, and how can you lead the roster and the locker room if you’re never in it and you’re on your tour bus? You don’t have your finger on the pulse.”

Despite his criticisms, McIntyre acknowledged Rollins’ talent and the significant role he played in elevating the title. However, he believes that for the title to fulfill its potential, it needs to transition to someone like himself who is fully committed to representing it on a broader scale. McIntyre expressed his eagerness to take the title on a journey with him, defending it in various arenas and engaging with fans on social media.

In his trademark confident style, McIntyre also addressed criticisms of being a “troll champion,” asserting that he’s not merely a keyboard warrior but someone who backs up his words with action. He made it clear that he’s willing to take on any challenger, both inside and outside the ring, and is determined to leave a mark as a dominant champion.

To me, he’s done a great job, a phenomenal job, I don’t think anybody could have made the title into what it is besides someone as talented as him. He got the title first, it’s his baby, he’s raised it, he’s taken it to college and done such a good job, but it has to leave the small town and go into the big bad world and become who its going to be and reach its potential. I’m the one it needs to come to to help reach its potential. I’ll finally have the world title I can take around and defend. It will come everywhere with me. It will join me on social, it will be hating on people on Twitter. It’s going to have a hell of a journey by my side. People can say I’m a ‘troll champion,’ but I’m not your average troll. I’m not behind a keyboard. I talk behind a keyboard, then I get up and I’ll beat you down. If you’re married, I’ll take your girl too.”

The two dynamic RAW stars are scheduled to face off in the co-main event of WrestleMania Night 2, with the World Heavyweight title on the line. As the road to WrestleMania 40 nears its conclusion, the evolution of this feud over the next few weeks will undoubtedly be intriguing.
