Drew McIntyre wants to split the world champions of WWE once again.
The titles were unified at WrestleMania 38 earlier this year when Roman Reigns defeated Brock Lesnar and have been defended as one title since. McIntyre, who challenges Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WWE Clash at the Castle, wouldn’t mind splitting the titles once again.
McIntyre told Alex McCarthy of Inside The Ropes:
“I mean, there’s no talk to me about any plan whatsoever. That’s the truth and generally, I don’t like to find out until last minute because things change so much anyway. But you know, splitting the titles may not be a bad thing if it’s possible. I’ve been saying it constantly on TV and in the media, I do believe the titles deserve to be represented in [an] appropriate manner, which means being on the show. When they’re both together, they can’t be on both shows. The weekend live events, the media interviews right now, the title should be represented, should be very visible that there’s a certain honour and prestige to those titles, and it used to be defended every 30 days and we’ve lost that somewhere along the line. And they’re fine right now, they’re on a huge star like Roman Reigns but at the same time, I do believe they need to be on the show. And there’s more emphasis on wrestling right now. It needs to have the champion wrestling,”Drew McIntyre to Inside The Ropes
