Drew McIntyre: WWE WrestleMania 37 Match with Bobby Lashley Will Be A "Classic Heavyweight Contest"

"It's two classic heavyweights going to have a classic heavyweight contest"

WrestleMania 37 is only three weeks away and WWE added Bobby Lashley vs. Drew McIntyre for the WWE Title to the card on this week's edition of Monday Night Raw. 

The Scottish Psychopath recently sat down with Bleacher Report to talk about the title clash and he described the match as "a classic heavyweight contest."

McIntyre said: "It's two classic heavyweights going to have a classic heavyweight contest in the main event of WrestleMania... WWE was built on two heavyweights going out. Just slugging it out and sitting in holds a lot of the time. We're two guys that are gonna go out there and lay it in, but we're gonna have an entertaining, athletic contest at the same time. It's so cool we have a modern heavyweight contest in the main event of WrestleMania."

McIntyre also reflected on the return of fans at The Showcase Of The Immortals, adding: "It means the world. Last year, I'm so proud of what we did, bringing the world an escape with WrestleMania, brought a lot of smiles on a lot of faces during a difficult time... but we've all been buzzing for the idea of the fans coming back. 

"The fans are unreal, so passionate in general. They've been starved of WWE for a long time, and they're ready to make some noise, and it's so cool the first time they're gonna be there is at WrestleMania. I'm just gonna try to not get overwhelmed. That's gonna be the biggest challenge for me, walking out for the first time in a stadium with that many people at WrestleMania trying to compose myself. I can't wait."
