Drew McIntyre has said that facing Happy Corbin at this year’s WrestleMania is as big as his previous three matches at the showcase of the immortals.
At WrestleMania 35 McIntyre lost to Roman Reigns, in 2019, dethroned Brock Lesnar to become WWE Champion in 2020, and unsuccessfully challenged Bobby Lashley for the title last year.
Speaking on The Bump, McIntyre addressed the criticism that the match with Corbin is a downgrade, saying:
“I guess if you look at my WrestleMania matches since I returned to WWE, it started with a big match with Roman, and then I defeated Brock for the WWE Championship the following and fought for the WWE Championship against Lashley last year, then this year it is Corbin. A lot of people might think one of these are not like the other but at the same time this one is as big as the others.’
“I do not want to take him out yet. I could have taken him out anytime over the past few weeks. But I want to wait for WrestleMania, the biggest stage of them all, and then embarrass Corbin.”
WrestleMania 38 will take place from April 2-3 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
