Drew McIntyre vs Roman reigns expected to happen soon
According to Roman Reigns’ current WWE contract, “The tribal chief” will only participate in some well known classic live events. The contract has been similar to that of Brock lesnar’s, who participated in fewer events back in 2021.
Recently, Drew McIntyre was on WWE’s The Bump where he discussed a variety of topics, with one of them being Roman Reigns’ new Contract with WWE.
McIntyre said that one of the two main WWE World Championships that Roman has should be in the business and accessible for competition. He said that Roman has signed the contract of appearing in few events is not a problem but atleast one championship should be available for competition and for that somebody needs to step up.
“His confidence is at an all-time high. We’ve always known how good Roman is. He’s always been incredible in the ring. He was always holding back in a certain way and I guess that was his character and who he was outside the ring because in the end, that’s the real Roman, he’s all about him or his family, as he claims, but inevitably he’s all about himself. Since he’s embraced his true self, he’s gone to levels that most of us could never even imagine so good for him. Bad for us, he’s got both the titles, he’s not on all the shows. We need those titles back, and I don’t hold it against him. He didn’t offer the contract, he signed the contract so if he’s not always there then that’s cool but we need those titles back. We need somebody to step up. We need someone to take him down.”
Recently during an interview with wrestling observer radio, Dave Melltzer had stated that WWE wants a Stadium show to feature Drew McIntyre vs Roman reigns. Meltzer stated, both being bigger stars in WWE as the reason for this. Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns last faced each other at WWE Backlash in a six man tag match, where “The Bloodline” defeated Drew McIntyre and RK- Bro.
