Drew McIntyre has offered up his opinion on what happened during the chaotic WrestleMania 40 press conference.
The WWE Universe is still buzzing over the WrestleMania 40 press conference (or press event as they called it) where the wrestling world found out that Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes is going to challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title.
That didn’t sit well with Reigns, who made it clear that he wanted to face his cousin The Rock instead. The Rock would go on to talk about the family history and how his grandfather as well as Roman’s grandfather had a blood bond while their families have carried on the legacies of their grandfathers.
While Reigns may have wanted to face Rock, we all know that Cody is the one who got to pick his opponent because Cody was the Royal Rumble winner who earned that right.
After Reigns insulted Cody and his later father Dusty Rhodes, Cody fired back to say that if Roman’s grandfather was here and Rock’s grandfather was here, they would be ashamed of Reigns. The Rock didn’t like Cody talking about their family, so Rock slapped Cody in the face. There was a fight that was quickly broken up.
Drew McIntyre is another WWE superstar that wants to get involved in this mix. On Monday’s Raw, Drew McIntyre pleaded with Cody Rhodes to pick Roman Reigns so that Drew could go after the World Heavyweight Title held by Seth “Freakin” Rollins.
In a video posted on TikTok and Twitter/X, Drew McIntyre expressed his thoughts regarding Cody’s decision for WrestleMania 40.
“Why don’t we talk about that press conference then? Rock Roman Cody, was Seth there? I can’t remember. No, no, he was there. Before I get to Seth, and I will get to Seth, let’s talk about Cody. Well done! You finally found your balls and made the right call, good for you. It just took some McIntyre truth bombs and me beating your ass on Monday for playing games with everybody, but you go and finish that story, kid. Congratulations.”
“Now, our World Heavyweight Champion. He came out on the stage, danced, said a whole bunch of nothing, and then stood by the side as the others talked down to him, talked down about the title, talked down about our locker room. The man’s not the leader you think he is. I would never let anyone, not Cody, not The Rock, and certainly not Roman talk about my title in that way. Have some pride, mate. Take the attention.
Drew McIntyre Believes Raw Needs A Change
The video featuring McIntyre continued as he spoke about Raw needing a change and that WrestleMania 40 will be the perfect time for him to be World Heavyweight Champion.
“It’s clear now more than ever, Raw needs a change. It’s clear Seth isn’t up to the job mentally, as well as physically, now. Pat McAfee even called Seth the bloody forgotten name and all of this at the start of the presser. Come on, lad. People have forgotten his name because he’s allowed it. He’s played the clown and he’s been overshadowed. Enough is enough and it’s time for a change.
“Last night was a bunch of chosen ones when the original Chosen One was left at home. I hope you’re all seeing now that I’m the only person in this place who has been telling you the truth the entire time. The only one who has actually stuck by my convictions. There’s a lot of moving parts going on right now, a lot of possible roads, but they all lead to the same destination. At WrestleMania, Drew McIntyre: World Heavyweight Champion.”
As for his WWE contract status, the latest update was that McIntyre was under contract until some point in April and it hasn’t been confirmed yet if McIntyre has signed a new contract.
