Drew McIntyre names his toughest opponent. The former WWE Champion has faced several wrestlers around the world during his career.
Drew McIntyre is scheduled to face Bobby Lashley at Hell in a Cell for the WWE Championship. The Scottish Warrior believes that Lashley and him are on similar levels, constantly trying to pull each other up through their work but does not consider him his toughest opponent.
The honor is reserved for a WWE legend that McIntyre spent months fighting last year. While speaking with Brandon F. Walker on an episode of Rasslin’, the former WWE Champion discussed who he considered his greatest rival and for what reason.
Drew McIntyre names his toughest opponent
“Thus far I think it’s Randy Orton. We spent four months with each other and that was my ultimate test of, ‘Can I step up to Randy Orton’s level on the microphone, in the ring as a storyteller, and can I hang with the best in the game?’ And that was such an important development and stage for me, keeping up with Randy and proving myself, and cementing myself at the top of the mountain.
“But Lashley and I are so similar and are at similar levels, and are trying to pull each other up through our work. And every time we get in there together it is easy. We know we can lay it in to each other any way we want. We can make people question do we like each other. And at times, we don’t. You can tell just by watching our matches sometimes on Monday Night Raw.
“You know, you can put us in there with not as much time as a WrestleMania, but you know you’re going to get a hard-hitting and exciting match for the duration of Lashley vs. McIntyre together. And keeping that storyline progressing, and adding wrinkles, like Braun Strowman, in keeps things interesting.”
