Drew McIntyre Wants To Challenge For World Heavyweight Title At WWE Clash At The Castle

Drew McIntyre wants the World Heavyweight Title at WWE Clash at the Castle

When WWE announced the second-ever Clash at the Castle was set for Glasgow, Scotland, then it seemed only inevitable that Drew McIntyre would be in line to headline the show.

The former WWE Champion is currently out of action, but is in line to receive a shot at Damian Priest’s World Heavyweight Championship, and should Priest still be champion on June 15 then McIntyre wants his shot in Glasgow, as he told PWInsider Elite:

"This is something that is beyond a dream. I talked about it for years. I spoke about it with yourself and everyone else that would listen to me for years that the UK needs to get a significant event. I've been asking from the day I was in WWE and I always heard the logistics excuse and this and this and suddenly we're doing shows all across the world and places like Australia that have got the craziest time difference. Finally, the original Clash at the Castle happened. I was like oh my goodness, this is a dream come true wrestling in the main event at Clash at the Castle. I could have done without singing that stupid freaking song afterwards. Nonetheless, it was just an amazing experience. I never thought for a second that ‘hey, we're gonna get a PLE in Scotland’. I was smartened up a few months ago that it's gonna happen. I thought ‘oh my goodness this is beyond dreams’. Growing up I didn't think about this because it wasn't a real thing and the idea that I get to go back there and be part such a big show while the industry is so hot. The industry wasn't as hot, I can assure you the Scottish were just as crazy and if you think Backlash was something, just wait for the songs. The Scottish fans will be bringing it. If I'm in [something] less than a title match, quite frankly I'll be upset," said McIntyre.

McIntyre continued, noting how he wants Priest specifically at the event:

"As much as I'd love to slap Punk around in front of my friends and family in Glasgow… it's about getting that title back. You know, having the title for 5 minutes and 46 seconds at WrestleMania was pretty cool and it was a legitimate very special moment and you could tell how much it meant to me and it meant having that moment with the fans and my wife and my brother before we went into the other stuff which obviously advanced the stories. But I want that title match if Priest has still got the title. We had words last week and whatever he said, everyone thinks Priest got one over on Drew. You never get one over on Drew. Nobody gets one over on Drew. Drew is playing chess while Priest is playing with his guyliner."

McIntyre continued, "I would like to have that title match if he's still the champion in Scotland and finally having that moment with the title and actually keep the title. I could never imagined it could potentially be in Glasgow so that's my dream scenario."
