Drew McIntyre Pitched WrestleMania Match With Triple H


Drew McIntyre has given credit to Triple H for bringing him back to WWE in 2017 as part of NXT and since then, he has gone on to be one of their biggest stars. 

The two men did work a tag team match at a live event in Japan in 2019, but never had a singles match against each other. That’s not due to McIntyre not trying to make it happen as he previously pitched a match with Triple H at WrestleMania years ago.

Triple H announced his retirement on March 25th due to health issues so the match won’t ever happen.

“I wanted a match. It’s unfortunate it won’t happen but I’m just glad he’s healthy for himself and his family. He’s the reason I’m back in WWE 100 percent. My mind was set at the time when I wasn’t going to re-sign with IMPACT that I’m going to Japan,” McIntyre told Alex McCarthy of TalkSPORT. “I pitched (a match) at every opportunity I could. How about us at WrestleMania? ‘What’s the story?’ [Triple H said] and I’d say ‘What’s the story? We’ll figure it out, but what about you and me at WrestleMania?!’ How awesome would that be We got in the ring together a few times during my first run but when I returned, we did do a match in Japan with myself, Dolph Ziggler and I can’t remember my other partners. But it was against The Good Brothers, AJ Styles and Hunter. That was really cool. We got in the ring together, we didn’t have anything in mind and we just went for it. It was cool to go back and forth a little bit and you understand just how good he is, what a ring general he is. You can see watching, but you don’t know until you’re in there with them just how good. Just some interactions during an 8-man tag in Japan I could tell like ‘wow, he’s really frigging good.’”
