Drew McIntyre recently spoke to Comic Book regarding his SummerSlam Match with Randy Orton, and he mentioned a number of mouthwatering opponents he’d like to face from SmackDown in the event of a draft.
There’s a few guys. Like, Cesaro is on my list of never had a match ever. I’d love to have a big match with him. Braun Strowman and I have never had a big, significant singles match. I think that could be interesting. It’s not so often you pay and you see two larger than life superstars going at it, but two that can actually move around I think would make for a very interesting match-up.
Along with ‘The King of Swing’ and ‘The Monster Among Men’, he also gave voice to a potential tantalising Celtic crossover.
It seems Drew has given a lot of thought to a match with Sheamus, and it’s interesting to see that even at the top of the game superstars still fantasy book their careers just as everyone else does.
It would be Sheamus over there. Him and I go way back to when I was about 18, 19 years old, he was about 43. He was a little bit older (laughs). We’ve got that big brother, little brother relationship. We both get signed on the same day, came to America together, developmental together. The night I won the IC title, he won the heavyweight title. Obviously his career ascended from there, mine went on the down slope until I got fired. I returned, he’d come down a little bit and then I exploded into the main event scene while he’s still trying to find his way back there. I think there’s a very interesting jealous older brother with little brother storyline that’s got a lot of real footage, a lot of real depth that fans would get behind, especially Scotland versus Ireland beating the crap out of each other. That would be great. We could definitely do that one in the bar again.
WWE is looking to holding its annual draft this autumn, with the latest word being that it will take place in October with two dates – one Raw and one SmackDown – being discussed as per the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
With the possibility of a draft incoming, which cross-brand matchups would you like to see? Andrade vs. Bryan? The New Day vs. The Street Profits? Perhaps The Miz vs. Kevin Owens in a battle of the talk show hosts?
