Drew McIntyre Doesn't Want To Defend The WWE Title In A Cinematic Match Against The Fiend

He thinks the WWE Title should be defended in "a realistic wrestling environment"

During a recent interview with Sportskeeda, Drew McIntyre admitted he doesn't want to defend the WWE Championship in a cinematic match against The Fiend.

"Maybe eventually, not right now," The Scottish Psychopath said. "I'm WWE Champion and I think, in fact I know, like the way I've been building the title, it's about the honour and respect and about wrestling. And there's room on the show for everything, a little bit something for everybody, different characters. It'd be boring if everyone was the same and The Fiend's unique character is so incredible, so out there, but I don't think that's something I think I want to mix the WWE title with. 

"Like that's for, you know that portion of the audience and for me as a fan to watch and be blown away by the spectacle. But when it comes to the WWE Championship, I expect it to be in a wrestling match. You know, like man-on-man, fighting over the title with respect and honour. And that's what I'm all about, that's how I've tried to represent the title and that's how I think it should be represented. Not in a comedic fashion or an outlanding fashion, but a realistic wrestling environment."

Both Superstars are on the Raw roster but McIntyre is currently feuding with Goldberg, while Bray Wyatt hasn't been seen since being set on fire at TLC.
