WWE's Drew McIntyre Doesn't Rule Out Match With Kazuchika Okada

Will we ever see it?

It emerged recently that WWE was in talks with New Japan Pro-Wrestling over a working relationship that would see Vince McMahon's company become NJPW's exclusive partner in the United States.

After the initial news broke, former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre teased a match with Kazuchika Okada on social media, and The Scottish Psychopath didn't rule out eventually facing the five-time IWGP Heavyweight Champion when speaking to Sportskeeda

"I mean I'm not going to say that we're never going to see it ever," McIntyre stated. "But I will say that I like to have fun. And I like to play out to things online. So, if you notice anything weird about something I say or something I do, there's generally a reason behind it as you noticed. But that's a match I'd love to have if it ever is possible.

"And as we've seen over the last few years, with all the different companies in the world and people working together, WWE is always open for business if it's the right situation. If it makes sense for business, that would be the match I would love."

A match with Okada has been something McIntyre has had on his mind for years. The Scottish Warrior revealed during a previous interview that he was close to joining NJPW before he re-signed with WWE in 2017 and matches with The Rainmaker, Hiroshi Tanahashi and Will Ospreay were at the top of his list.
