Drew McIntyre: ‘I think each WWE brand should have its own World Champion’


WWE unified that WWE Title and Universal Title at WrestleMania 38 last month when Roman Reigns beat Brock Lesnar in a winner take all match.

This has left Raw and SmackDown with one champion as Reigns has made appearances on both shows as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. This is the plan going forward although many expect WWE to go back to having two World Champions eventually.

While speaking with WrestleRant, Drew McIntyre stated he prefers there being two World Champions since the rosters are separated.

“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 bell 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.”

As previously reported, WWE is saving the big title match between Reigns and McIntyre for one of the upcoming stadium shows.
