Big Show is a big fan of Drew McIntyre and believes he could be a champion that will be remembered for years to come.
During an interview with Digital Spy, Big Show, a former WWE Champion in his own right, spoke highly of the current WWE Champion and saw something special when McIntyre defeated Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36.
"I've been in this business for decades and I've seen champions come and go. I've been a fan of Drew McIntyre for a long time. He has all the talent in the world. He has the size, he has the look, he has the athletic ability, but years ago he didn't quite put it together. I saw the match he had with Brock Lesnar and it was absolutely amazing. I saw so much heart and determination and just big star appeal that I seized the opportunity," Big Show said.
But Big Show made a surprise appearance immediately after McIntyre's match at WrestleMania and faced McIntyre in an impromptu match that aired the next night on Raw. After seeing everything that he has seen, Big Show believes that McIntyre could be one of the best WWE Champions ever.
"I wanted to put Drew in the absolute worst condition possible, after surviving a very brutal match with Brock Lesnar, and have him step in the ring with a fresh giant who was going to beat on him and show the world what he was made of," Big Show said. "That was my goal… To show the world that he's a champion that Raw deserves, a champion that WWE deserves and after the three count when I was holding my chin, trying to put my jaw back in place after that Claymore Kick, I was smiling at Drew. I am very proud of Drew and I think he's definitely on his way to [being] one of the best champions ever."
