Ahead of his WrestleMania 35 showdown with Roman Reigns, Drew McIntyre appeared on WJLA’s Good Morning Washington show on Monday morning to promote tonight’s “go-home” edition of WWE RAW. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On WWE showing faith in him by having him be the first big singles match opponent for Roman Reigns on PPV at WrestleMania 35: “It’s wild. You know, I’ve been back on Monday Night RAW for 10 months now and I’m fighting Roman Reigns, the #1 guy, returning from his illness in his first big singles match at WrestleMania. It’s pretty incredible, it’s a great opportunity and a show of faith by the company, in my ability now, and I’m very, very excited to give the world a performance they won’t forget.”
On WWE working with so many charities and his respect level for Reigns: “It means the world. We can make such a difference in so many different areas. Some areas that are very personal to myself, and with someone like Roman coming back, it’s his personal mission to get word out there and really make a difference. And I admire him more than probably anybody on the roster. I did strongly recommend that he didn’t accept my challenge for WrestleMania because I don’t want to have to embarrass him in front of the world, but fortunately now it’s a big marquee match, we’re two large men and we’re going to lay into each other pretty good.”
On taking a shot at Brock Lesnar when promoting the ‘go-home’ edition of RAW: “Brock Lesnar’s actually going to show up tonight. Yeah, it sounds crazy but the champion’s actually there.”
