Drew McIntyre Wants Sheamus On WWE Raw As Part Of The AJ Styles Trade

A blockbuster trade went down on May 22 when AJ Styles was dealt to SmackDown for future considerations.

While it's unknown if WWE will actually follow-up on the trade, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre put on his General Manager hat and has the perfect return for Styles.

"I would move AJ right back. (laughs) I think I said it quite plainly that AJ and I have been like ships in the night for years. Came back to RAW, you know where I think I was a bad guy. He was probably, I think, a good guy and then he turned. He's a bad guy and I'm like, 'ah we're never going to have this match!' Then I turn good. Then I'm like, 'Oh my God we're both on RAW. I'm a good guy. I'm the Champion. AJ Styles is here. It's finally going to happen!' Then they trade him to SmackDown," McIntyre told Sportskeeda.

"Send Sheamus over to RAW. We've known each other since I was 19, he was about 43. We came up together. We got signed together. The night he won the WWE Championship, I won the Intercontinental Championship. Obviously his career took off, mine kind of went on the down slope and I had to take the long way around. And he's looking to prove himself again right now. He's one of the most physical Superstars in the world, as am I. And I think we'd have, you know, a heck of a feud with a real good back story. He was the best man at my wedding. We have that real relationship and plenty of things to tell that haven't been on television."

It is unknown when, or if, USA Network executives will cash in on the AJ Styles trade. Styles is set to compete against Daniel Bryan for the WWE Intercontinental Title on WWE SmackDown.
