Drew McIntyre Thinks WWE Raw & SmackDown Should Have Their Own World Champion
Drew McIntyre is seemingly against a WWE/Universal Title unification
The WWE and Universal Title scenes are a little confusing right now, with Roman Reigns holding both titles despite being a SmackDown contracted star, and reportedly with no plans from WWE to officially unify the belts.
What this means going forward is anyone's guess, but former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre feels Raw and SmackDown should each have their own world champion, telling WrestleRant:
“I mean just for the roster it’s been separated. I think each show should have its own champion. I know, say like 20 years ago, whatever it was the same champion they traveled to the shows. But it was also the same roster. Right now, it’s because of what happened at WrestleMania I know the build to Mania was for this gigantic match with Roman vs. Brock. It was two champions facing off with each… the two top champions facing off with each other. Two individuals with such an incredible history really on fire at another level persona-wise with Roman as his Tribal Chief character and cowboy Brock, which we’ve never seen before so it was a huge match, huge implications. This is the fallout from that huge match with both titles and it’s cool right now. It puts him even higher up than he was before if that’s even possible. He’s literally Thanos levels right now. I think it’s about time that somebody at least took one of those titles off of him and I’m looking at Drew McIntyre,” said McIntyre.
