Drew McIntyre Hopes Undertaker Doesn't Fully Retire So He Can Get One More Match With Him

Drew McIntyre is excited to see The Undertaker have his Final Farewell, though part of him wishes he wasn't retiring for good.

McIntyre will be one of many firmly watching Undertaker's appearance at Survivor Series and spoke with Sportskeeda. McIntyre admitted that he hopes that Undertaker doesn't fully retire in the hopes that he can get one more match with him whether it would be in a regular match or in a cinematic setting.

"Selfishly, as much as he deserves this farewell, I'm hoping... that there is still something in there, at least for one more match. Be it cinematic or whatever, or he just feels it and he feels physically good and says 'I want to fight Drew', and he calls me... or like he said in The Last Ride Documentary, if Vince calls, you know he'll be a good soldier and come running. I'll harass Vince every day, like call him, call him, call him, call him. Selfishly I want that match, but he deserves to do whatever he wants after his career," McIntyre said.

McIntyre said he wanted to show Undertaker how much he's grown over the years. When he and Undertaker faced off in a tag team match at a previous Extreme Rules show, the current WWE Champion said he felt like the two should have a match down the line.

"I wanted to show him how far I'd come since that kid that used to harass him for advice all the time, that wasn't quite figuring it out," McIntyre said. "We went face to face in that first match, when I was a kid, and it looked like a boy standing in front of a man. Like it looked ridiculous, it didn't look believable. But when I went face to face with him in that tag match, where that was a full grown man that finally showed back up to go face to face with The Undertaker, the crowd recognized it and they started rumbling. And I thought, man, we've got to have this match."
