Drew McIntyre Names The NXT Superstars He’d Like To Face

The former NXT Champion has some unfinished business…

Drew McIntyre took part in an Instagram Live video with WWEonBTSport ahead of his WrestleMania 37 WWE Title match against Bobby Lashley. 

During the session, talk turned to NXT, and who former NXT Champion McIntyre would like to face from the black and gold brand.

McIntyre, it turns out, has quite a few names on his list:

"NXT is always so full of talent, it’s hard to single anybody out. You know, Adam Cole and I have had some matches in the past. Very few, actually. One particular one where Shawn Michaels was the referee. We always had such stellar matches and it’s an easy story to tell. And it’d be interesting because he’s a heel, he’s such a good heel. [Karrion] Kross has been getting my attention over the past year, he’s really been making some waves. He’s a big guy, we could do some really cool stuff together. 

“[Johnny] Gargano and I go way back. [Tomasso] Ciampa and I go way back. A couple of guys I’ve had some great matches with, and it’s a cool story. Gargano and I, you know, on the independent scene, really had some significant matches… We have an interesting backstory which has never been touched upon, so that could be fun. Everyone is the answer, they’re all good!”

No matter the opponent, we reckon any of these names against McIntyre would make for a box office encounter.
