Drew McIntyre Says WWE Was Wrong To Unify The WWE & Universal Championships


WWE SmackDown Superstar Drew McIntyre has spoken out against the company’s decision to unify their two World Championships.

At WrestleMania 38, Universal Champion Roman Reigns defeated WWE Champion Brock Lesnar to unify the titles, with Reigns now billed as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.

While speaking with WrestleRant, McIntyre said that it was wrong to unify the two titles given that RAW and SmackDown are brand-exclusive events:

“Each show should have its own champion. I know, say like 20 years ago, whatever it was the same champion they traveled to the shows. But it was also the same roster. Right now, it’s because of what happened at WrestleMania I know the build to Mania was for this gigantic match with Roman vs. Brock.

“It was two champions facing off with each… the two top champions facing off with each other. Two individuals with such an incredible history really on fire at another level persona-wise with Roman as his Tribal Chief character and cowboy Brock, which we’ve never seen before so it was a huge match, huge implications. This is the fallout from that.”

Reigns and McIntyre will be on opposite sides for tonight’s six-man-tag match at WrestleMania: Backlash.
