Drew McIntyre on Roman Reigns: “No one is close to him”

Last updated

WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre recently revealed his huge praise for WWE Universal Champion and fellow SmackDown competitor Roman Reigns.

Speaking to Sky Sports, McIntyre stated that “He’s on fire. There’s nobody close to him in the entire wrestling industry. That’s why everyone keeps saying to me, ‘Drew and Roman, that’s what’s going to happen.’

“I’m sure it’s inevitable that’s going to happen, but I don’t want it to happen right now” Drew McIntyre revealed. “He has all this momentum and I’m a very patient man, I’ve been in the wrestling game for over 20 years now.

“I want to keep building up victories and momentum. I want him to have to watch and go, ‘Alright,’ I know what this guy can do, we fought each other and Survivor Series last year, his cousins interfered, he low blowed me and eventually choked me out.

“That’s cool, but he knows what I’m capable of these days and I want him to have to watch me build up momentum and when the time is right, we come together, and it’s going to be a huge match for us as superstars, but especially for fans. When the time is right though” McIntyre concluded.
