Drew McIntyre is a fighting champion and there are a few names in WWE that he wants to see move over to the red brand so that he can defend his championship and check off some boxes on his dream match list.
Most recently, Drew McIntyre defended the WWE Championship against Dolph Ziggler at WWE Extreme Rules. This occurred after Dolph Ziggler moved to Raw from SmackDown. on Dolph Ziggler's first night, he answered an open challenge from the WWE Champion and that is how opportunity formed.
Speaking with Comic Book, Drew McIntyre named other members of the Friday Night SmackDown roster that he would like to see move over to Raw, Superstars who share his hard-hitting in-ring style.
“There's a few guys," McIntyre began. "Like, Cesaro is on my list of never had a match ever. I'd love to have a big match with him. Braun Strowman and I have never had a big, significant singles match. I think that could be interesting. It's not so often you pay and you see two larger than life superstars going at it, but two that can actually move around I think would make for a very interesting match-up.”
He continued, "It would be Sheamus over there. Him and I go way back to when I was about 18, 19 years old, he was about 43. He was a little bit older (laughs). We've got that big brother, little brother relationship. We both get signed in the same day, came to America together, developmental together. The night I won the IC title, he won the heavyweight title. Obviously his career ascended from there, mine went on the downslope until I got fired. I returned, he'd come down a little bit and then I exploded into the main event scene while he's still trying to find his way back there. I think there's a very interesting jealous older brother with little brother storyline that's got a lot of real footage, a lot of real depth that fans would get behind, especially Scotland versus Ireland beating the crap out of each other. That would be great. We could definitely do that one in the bar again."
