Drew McIntyre has decided on the main events for both nights of WrestleMania.
Most fans expect McIntyre challenging Brock Lesnar for the WWE Title to serve as one of the main events for the two-night WrestleMania 36 event. But the other main event is reportedly up in the air with Edge and Roman Reigns both lobbying for their matches to serve as the show closer.
But if it were up to McIntyre, he would side with Edge.
"I’ve seen Roman pushing the main event of him and Goldberg, and I respect Roman more than most people in the world, but I won the Royal Rumble, mate. I’m the main event [laughs]. I’m going to pick Brock and I to main event night two because that’s the one that sends everybody home [proverbially]. For the first night, I’ll go for… ah, it’s so hard! Because Roman and Goldberg is for the title and that’s very important, it should be the main event. But Edge and Randy Orton is so personal and so well built," McIntyre told Alex McCarthy of TalkSPORT.
He continued, "The situation we’re in isn’t ideal for most people when having matches, but I know these guys. They’re such good sellers and storytellers that it’s going to be like a cinematic masterpiece watching their match. That’s how it looks in my head. The way they work and the way their facials and their storytelling, I imagine their match will be more like watching a movie. Brock and I, I imagine it’s more like a bar fight, very uncomfortable to watch. Which I think that will be cool to play down the camera to everybody at home, we can be smart about it. So you’ve got to think bigger picture; how can we make this interesting for everybody watching at home? That’s the way I see our match. So I’m going to go with Edge and Randy. I think The Fiend is going to take down John Cena in pretty convincing fashion for revenge and I think Roman is going to take down Goldberg in pretty convincing fashion.
"Edge and Randy, myself and Brock, we’re probably going to put in a little bit more time, so that’s another reason why. I don’t know that by the way, that’s just how I feel. It’s tough, because the title should be last. Roman didn’t technically lose the title either. Although the meme of me winning the Royal Rumble and then Roman walking out and saying ‘I’m next’ made me laugh [laughs]. Realistically, the title was taken off him, he didn’t lose it. He has a great story to tell, but I just think he’s going to run Goldberg over pretty quick and the story behind Edge and Randy, the nine years, the fact that in this particular setting they’re going to thrive in it, I’d put it last – on night one! Brock and I are obviously night two [laughs]," finished McIntyre.
It is unknown which matches will main event each night of WrestleMania. Fightful Select reported that Becky Lynch vs. Shayna Baszler was set to main event night one, but there has been a push for Roman Reigns vs. Goldberg.
