WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre, recently spoke to Sportskeeda about The Fiend and if he believes that the WWE Championship will make the character or break the character.
McIntyre had the following to say about The Fiend holding the WWE Championship:
“Maybe eventually, not right now. I’m WWE Champion and I think, in fact I know, like the way I’ve been building the title, it’s about the honor and respect and about wrestling. And there’s room on the show for everything, a little bit something for everybody, different characters. It’d be boring if everyone was the same and The Fiend’s unique character is so incredible, so out there, but I don’t think that’s something I think I want to mix the WWE title with. Like that’s for, you know that portion of the audience and for me as a fan to watch and be blown away by the spectacle. But when it comes to the WWE Championship, I expect it to be in a wrestling match. You know, like man-on-man, fighting over the title with respect and honor. And that’s what I’m all about, that’s how I’ve tried to represent the title and that’s how I think it should be represented. Not in a comedic fashion or an outlanding fashion, but a realistic wrestling environment.”
McIntyre isn’t crazy about facing The Fiend in a cinematic match with his championship on the line for good reason.
Drew McIntyre is scheduled to face Goldberg at the Royal Rumble this Sunday.
