Drew McIntyre has admitted Bobby Lashley has 'earned his moment' with the WWE Championship while teasing a potential match with the All Mighty at WrestleMania 37.
Lashley claimed his first WWE title on Monday Night Raw with a victory over The Miz, who had won the championship only eight days prior from McIntyre, cashing in his Money In The Bank contract on the Scotsman following Lashley's assault.
Lashley's first primary title in WWE has been well received, and McIntyre believes the new champion has put in the graft to get his chance as the top guy in the promotion.
Speaking on RAW Talk, McIntyre said: "He’s worked hard for it. The man is an absolute animal in every possible way, in the gym and ring. He’s earned this moment.”
McIntyre and Lashley previously clashed over the WWE title at Backlash 2020 and the former champion has speculated on the idea of the two standing across the ring from each other at WrestleMania 37.
He added: "The idea of Drew McIntyre vs. Bobby Lashley is pretty big for me, it feels like a significant match for RAW. If it happens at the biggest stage of them all, that’s just fine with me.
"There’s no way I’m not going to try and work myself into the main event of WrestleMania."
