Drew McIntyre Names Randy Orton As His Greatest WWE Rival
The two feuded over the WWE Title next month
Drew McIntyre believes Randy Orton has been his best feud in WWE so far, but believes his current rivalry with Bobby Lashley has the potential to overtake it.
McIntyre and Orton feuded over the WWE Championship for four months throughout 2020 and McIntyre believes it proved to be the biggest test of his standing in the company up until that point.
The Scottish Warrior says, because of that, he has to list Orton as his greatest rival, but admits the ongoing feud with Lashley could become his best because of how well they work together.
Speaking on Rasslin’ with Brandon F. Walker, McIntyre said: "Thus far I think it’s Randy Orton. We spent four months with each other and that was my ultimate test of, ‘Can I step up to Randy Orton’s level on the microphone, in the ring as a storyteller, and can I hang with the best in the game?’ And that was such an important development and stage for me, keeping up with Randy and proving myself, and cementing myself at the top of the mountain.
"But Lashley and I are so similar and are at similar levels, and are trying to pull each other up through our work. And every time we get in there together it is easy. We know we can lay it in to each other any way we want. We can make people question do we like each other. And at times, we don’t. You can tell just by watching our matches sometimes on Monday Night Raw.
"You know, you can put us in there with not as much time as a WrestleMania, but you know you’re going to get a hard-hitting and exciting match for the duration of Lashley vs. McIntyre together. And keeping that storyline progressing, and adding wrinkles, like Braun Strowman, in keeps things interesting."
