Despite having greats such as William Regal and Davey Boy Smith on their roster throughout the years, WWE has never had a British-born WWE World Champion. Drew McIntyre is hoping to change that at WrestleMania 36.
Speaking with SuperSport, Drew McIntyre spoke openly about looking forward to having his WrestleMania moment, even if current circumstances will not allow Drew’s vision of sharing this moment with a crowded stadium to come to fruition.
“I don’t think there are quite the words for it,” Drew began. “I had visions for how it would go in that stadium…but right now, looking at the bigger picture, the fact that I’ve got the opportunity to fight for the WWE Title, after an 18-year journey, against Brock Lesnar, in the main event at WrestleMania. This can be a moment of escape for everybody.”
Continuing, Drew spoke about creating a moment that people can feel on a deeper level by becoming the first British WWE Champion in history and how much that means to him.
“Becoming the WWE Champion finally after 19 years, becoming the first British Champion, hopefully, will make people feel something on a deeper level and that is very important to me too,” he concluded.
Drew will get his opportunity to headline one of the nights during the first-ever two-night WrestleMania which will take place between April 4th and 5th on WWE Network.
