Drew McIntye: There Is Nobody Close To Roman Reigns In The Entire Wrestling Landscape
McIntyre acknowledges Roman
Drew McIntyre has hailed Roman Reigns, saying that nobody is 'close to him' across the entire wrestling landscape.
McIntyre and Reigns appear set for a collision on SmackDown following the 2021 WWE Draft last month, and McIntyre is keen to fight once again with The Tribal Chief after going at it at last year's Survivor Series.
Speaking to Sky Sports, McIntyre said: "He’s on fire. There’s nobody close to him in the entire wrestling industry. That’s why everyone keeps saying to me ‘it’s Drew and Roman, that’s obviously what’s going to happen.’ I’m sure it’s inevitably going to happen but I don’t want it to happen right now.
"He’s got 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, I want to keep building up momentum, I want him to have to watch and go ‘alright, I know what this guy can do.’
"We fought each other at Survivor Series last year. His cousins, of course, 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 the fans. Not until the time is right, though."
