Drew McIntyre is preparing for his WrestleMania moment in front of a live crowd on night one of this year’s WrestleMania. The former WWE Champion is getting a chance to reclaim his lost title against Bobby Lashley on Saturday night, and while we don’t know if it’s the main event of the first night, placement doesn’t matter to The Scottish Psychopath.
McIntyre recently spoke to Wrasslin News, and McIntyre revealed that it didn’t matter to him if the match was the main event or the opening match of the show, all that matters is that everyone will be watching. He believes he can make his match the biggest one on the card as long as he’s on it. To him, even the opening match will feel special because it’s the first live crowd match the WWE has held since the start of the pandemic and there’s going to be a lot of pent up reactions from fans and performers for that night.
“I mean, like I would be happy opening the show or closing the show. This year is so unique in the sense that, you know, the last match…every match at WrestleMania is a main event. Let’s be realistic, if you’re on WrestleMania, you’re in a main event, but when you’re fighting for the championship, generally it’s cool to close the show. This is such a unique WrestleMania, without having the fans there for an entire year, that first reaction is gonna be so so special. So that’s why I said if I finish last, the last match…that’s phenomenal. That’s fantastic. That’s tradition. But if I’m in the opening match it’s just as big because if you get to walk out in that first match and get the crowd full of energy and all those pent-up reactions that we’ve been keeping inside for a year, that’s gonna be special too, so, either way I’m happy. But if you’re in WrestleMania, you’re in the main event. Every match is big. Every match is huge.”
While it seems like the WWE may have already internally planned the match order, it seems like all that matters to McIntyre is making sure the fans get what they paid for when it comes to his match.
