During a recent interview with Sportskeeda, Drew McIntyre commented on why he thinks “The Fiend” character shouldn’t be in the WWE title picture right now, and more. He said,
“Maybe eventually, not right now. I’m WWE Champion and I think, in fact I know, like the way I’ve been building the title, it’s about the honor and respect and about wrestling. And there’s room on the show for everything, a little bit something for everybody, different characters. It’d be boring if everyone was the same and The Fiend’s unique character is so incredible, so out there, but I don’t think that’s something I think I want to mix the WWE title with. Like that’s for, you know that portion of the audience and for me as a fan to watch and be blown away by the spectacle.
But when it comes to the WWE Championship, I expect it to be in a wrestling match. You know, like man-on-man, fighting over the title with respect and honor. And that’s what I’m all about, that’s how I’ve tried to represent the title and that’s how I think it should be represented. Not in a comedic fashion or an outlanding fashion, but a realistic wrestling environment.”
McIntyre will be facing Goldberg in a WWE Championship match at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event this Sunday night.
