Drew McIntyre has his sights set on the Universal Championship.
On Friday, October 1, WWE kicked off their latest draft on SmackDown. The show featured 4 rounds, with both Raw and SmackDown making a total of 8 selections. The final picks are set to be made this Monday night on Raw.
One of the biggest names to change brands was Drew McIntyre, who was drafted from Raw to SmackDown. The Scottish Warrior spoke with Kayla Braxton on the most recent edition of Talking Smack and commented on what winning the Universal Title would mean to him. He said the following:
"It would mean a lot to me. You know it's interesting, Roman and I have quite the history since I've returned to WWE and perhaps the roles are a little bit reversed. I've been watching what Roman's been doing over this past year and I might not like how he does things a lot of the time but he is operating at a different level. He always talks about these levels, and right now he is at the absolute top. To be honest, not just the top of SmackDown, but the top of this industry. I want Roman. I want that match. I tangled with him last year. He needed a bit of help to get that victory, but I know I can take him down. As much as winning those two WWE Championships meant to me, where Roman's at right now, taking him down, taking the Universal Championship would be the biggest moment of Drew McIntyre's career."
Roman and Drew faced off at last year's Survivor Series, with the Tribal Chief picking up the victory after Jey Uso got involved in the match.
Up next for Roman, however, is a showdown with Brock Lesnar at WWE Crown Jewel on October 21.
