Former WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre is the biggest babyface on the WWE Raw roster. He has been one of the biggest stars for the company during the pandemic era. Now, McIntyre has revealed that a Heel turn is inevitable.

Drew McIntyre will be challenging Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship in the opening match of Wrestlemania 37 Night One. At Westlemania 36, McIntyre had defeated Brock Lesnar in the main event to win the Championship.


But with no fans in attendance, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, McIntyre was robbed of his Mania moment. This year he finally has the opportunity to live his moment in front of 25,000 fans. McIntyre recently appeared for an interview with Steven Muehlhausen of DAZN, where he teased his possible Heel turn.

“You mentioned the pressure, and some people have not been able to handle it in the past that being champion, all the eyeballs on you, and all the responsibility is on you. Everything I’ve been through prepared me for everything. Nothing gets my eye off the prize. I’ve done this for a very long time. I know how to do my job. I do it to the best of my ability. If the fans are digging it, that’s cool. If they don’t like it, that’s cool, too. Eventually, big Drew’s going to have a big heel turn. I can’t wait for it.”

At the Showcase of Immortals, Drew McIntyre will be facing Lashley for the Championship. But this wont be his first bout against the All Mighty Champion. They had even faced each other at IMPACT Wrestling Slammiversary some years ago and also wrestled for the WWE Championship at Backlash, 2020.


About the match, McIntyre mentioned that fans can expect a brutal bout. “Lashley-McIntyre will be highly physical and be highly athletic. It’ll be like a modern-day heavyweight classic, and I guarantee you that people will be talking about it for a very long time.”

WWE Wrestlemania is less than 24 hours away, and Night One airs live on 10th April.
