Drew McIntyre wants all the dream matches.
McIntyre thought he found an ally in The Rock, who was always complimentary of McIntyre's work in interviews. However, The Rock switched sides leading up to The Horror Show at Extreme Rules, supporting Dolph Ziggler becoming WWE Champion.
“The Rock is the best, one of the nicest guys in the world and he deserves all his success,” McIntyre said to the Glasgow Times. “There was a time I was doing nothing, really, and TMZ asked him who he thought was the next breakout star. And he picked me, which really inspired me and fired me up. I appreciated that and it gave me motivation. Then to see WWE posted an image of Dolph Ziggler with the title, and Rock backed him up! That hurt my one feeling I’ve got left. I thought, ‘What would Rock do in this situation?’ If this was 1998/99, what would he say? I thought, screw it. I’m the champion, I don’t back down to anyone, even The Rock. My phone exploded. I’d love to face The Rock anywhere, but if there was one place on earth it would be a WrestleMania at Ibrox. That would be great for personal reasons. It would probably have to be Hampden, we’d need somewhere massive. If he chose to come back for a match, as the biggest Box Office attraction in the world, wow. Come on, Rock, give me that match.”
McIntyre recently said he would also like a dream match against John Cena. You can find his full comments on a potential bout with Cena by clicking here.
