Drew McIntyre accepts Goldberg’s challenge for WWE Title at Royal Rumble. The WWE Champion is currently out of action with Covid-19.
Drew McIntyre has tested positive for Covid-19. This however, hasn’t stopped him from making future engagements concerning the defense of his WWE Championship. The Scottish Psychopath was as determined to held on to his title as he’s ever been.
The WWE Champion addressed the fans earlier in the night regarding him testing positive for Covid-19. He urged them to wear their masks and practice social distancing. There was no mention of Goldberg then. A little while later though, the WWE dropped a second video.
Drew McIntyre accepts Goldberg’s challenge for WWE Title at Royal Rumble
McIntyre spoke about how Goldberg interrupted him last week before he had a chance to thank the legends who had appeared on the show. Interestingly, Goldberg accused him of being disrespectful to the legends before he challenged McIntyre.
McIntyre spoke about how you should never meet your heroes and how Goldberg had let his legacy down. He taunted Goldberg for never winning the WWE Championship before accepting his challenge for the championship at Royal Rumble.

McIntyre may have tested positive for Coronavirus. Fortunately for him though, he is asymptomatic. This is good news for both him and the WWE, who are clearly desperate to have this match on their January 31st PPV card.
It is a little concerning though, that the WWE have brought up Goldberg’s failure to win the WWE Championship. A program between the two is fine. Not a lot of fans will likely be thrilled with the prospect of another meaningless and short Goldberg title run. Most fans however, will not mind an explosive short match reminiscent of Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar at 2017’s Wrestlemania.
