Current WWE Champion Drew McIntyre has had a stellar run so far, and he is already planning on his next big opponent for Summerslam.
The Scottish Psychopath spoke with Inside The Ropes and discussed a possible challenger for the title currently around his waist. McIntyre brought up the name of the ‘Viper’ Randy Orton, and believed Orton vs McIntyre is a feud ‘that has to happen’.
“I think Orton is the one that has to happen. You know right now we’re in the position where we’re building a lot of people, including myself, and myself and Lashley together I think we’ll be able to help each other with MVP bringing each other up, establishing each other as I’m on the rise establishing myself as champion and what my legacy is going to be.
“But someone like an Orton is someone who can make me work up, really learn from, he’s obviously an established name, people tune in saying hey there’s Randy Orton.”
McIntyre has noted in the past that he wants to desperately have a feud with AJ Styles, but The Phenomenal One has departed to the blue brand, leaving McIntyre with a shorter list of credible heels on the roster.
McIntyre has defeated Seth Rollins and Andrade, while a possible feud with his former tag-team partner Jinder Mahal was nixed due to an untimely surgery for the former WWE Champion.
McIntyre is currently scheduled to face Bobby Lashley at Backlash and will have one more defense at Extreme Rules before the biggest party of the summer in August.
