Drew McIntyre isn't finished with Roman Reigns.
McIntyre had the chance to win the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WWE Clash at the Castle, but was unsuccessful thanks to Solo Siokio, who cost McIntyre the match.
McIntyre looks to regroup at WWE Extreme Rules when he faces Karrion Kross in a strap match.
Speaking to the Dallas Morning News, McIntyre was asked if he's thought about doing a regular match anytime soon as opposed to his recent schedule, which has seen him involved in physical affairs in the ring and in interview segments.
“No [laughs]. I don’t think so. I suffer for the company, suffer from my art – constantly, it feels like. But that comes with the territory being the workhorse of WWE, being the conscience, I guess, of WWE. You ain’t gonna find Roman Reigns doing the schedule that I do. I keep the championship schedule. I’m happy to do it. I’m happy to do the media responsibilities. I’m happy to represent the company on the weekend live events. This is my dream. It’s a privilege to do it. And if it involves getting beat with chairs … still be involved in the strap match with Kross, who has managed to divert my attention away from the title, so be it. Even though he keeps attacking me from behind. If it’s not him attacking me, it’s his girl [Scarlett] low blowing me from behind. I’ll do what I have to do get through all these new challenges and get my way back to Roman," he said.
Drew continued by saying, "Apparently, I’ll have to go through not just The Bloodline – because I did that prior to Clash at the Castle – then the elders and a new member [Solo Sikoa]. I’m going to have to literally go through the entire family like door to door. And I like The Rock a lot. It’s gonna pain me deeply when I go through the entire family, have to go to Hollywood, tap The Rock’s door and say, ‘I’m sorry, brother,’ then beat them him in his own doorstep because it’s the only way I’m gonna get that title off Roman.”
Reigns has held the WWE Universal Championship for over two years and became the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion at WrestleMania 38 when he defeated Brock Lesnar.
