Drew McIntyre Wants To Face Randy Orton At WWE SummerSlam 2020

He thinks The Viper can be his Joker...

WWE's next pay-per-view is only two days away as Backlash will be broadcast from the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. The show includes multiple hotly-anticipated matches including Drew McIntyre vs. Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship. 

The Scottish Psychopath is already looking beyond Lashley, however, and recently told Kenny McIntosh at Inside The Ropes that he wants to go one one one with Randy Orton at SummerSlam. 

"Regarding SummerSlam, I think Orton is the one that has to happen. You know, right now, we're in a situation where we're building a lot of people, including myself, and myself and Lashley together, I think we're people to help each other with MVP and bring each other up as I'm on my rise, establishing myself as champion and what my legacy is going to be. 

"But someone like an Orton is somebody that can make me work up, really learn from. He's also an established face and people tune in and they're gonna say, 'There’s Randy Orton.' If they've never seen me before, if they remember me from the past, they're gonna go, 'Oh, who's this guy?' And he's gonna help tell that story and really establish me as a top top player. I think basically Randy Orton is my joker. I think there's a great storyline there."
