Roman Reigns & Drew McIntyre In Verbal War Over Wrestlemania Main Event?
WWE is gearing up for a two-night affair of WrestleMania 36 for the first-time-ever. It won’t be a live show for the first time as WWE has been taping the show to broadcast it on April 4 and 5th.
Since the event takes place over two nights, it’s evident that two main events will be reserved for this exceptional edition of the show of shows.
With that being said, two of the potential main eventers of WrestleMania 36 have engaged in an indirect banter over who’s going to headline the show.
Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns are the two names who claimed to be the show-stealers for some good reasons. McIntyre challenges Lesnar for the WWE Championship whereas Reigns to face Goldberg for the Universal title.
During a recent interview with Alex McCarthy, Drew McIntyre received the question of who should main-event the first night 1 of WrestleMania 36 (assuming that Brock Lesnar vs. Drew McIntyre will be the Night 2 main event).
The number one contender for the WWE Title chose Edge vs. Randy Orton over Goldberg vs. Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship for this slot, (courtesy wwfoldschool.com)
“I’ve seen Roman pushing the main event of him and Goldberg, and I respect Roman more than most people in the world, but I won the Royal Rumble, mate. I’m the main event [laughs]. I’m going to pick Brock and I to main event night two because that’s the one that sends everybody home [proverbially].
For the first night, I’ll go for… ah, it’s so hard! Because Roman and Goldberg is for the title and that’s very important, it should be the main event. But Edge and Randy Orton is so personal and so well built.”
Drew McIntyre has his own reasons while picking his choice as he believes the other two options for WrestleMania main event, won’t reach that standard. The Fiend is likely to defeat John Cena in an easy way whereas the same would be the scene in the Universal Title match where Roman Reigns sends Goldberg back to retirement taking away the latter’s title.
This means Edge vs. Randy Orton and Drew McIntyre will be carried for a longer time and should be the two main events of WrestleMania 36,
“I think The Fiend is going to take down John Cena in pretty convincing fashion for revenge and I think Roman is going to take down Goldberg in pretty convincing fashion.
Edge and Randy, myself and Brock, we’re probably going to put in a little bit more time, so that’s another reason why. I don’t know that by the way, that’s just how I feel.”
Don’t care where my match falls. Just happy to be healthy and fit enough to participate. Grateful to share the ring with a legend and icon on our industry’s biggest night(s). As should everyone else, in a time like this. Be safe, healthy and grateful. https://t.co/lRIauineEc

Earlier, Roman Reigns was extremely proud to be back on the WrestleMania main event scene after a hiatus of one year. Being the franchise player of the company, he is almost guaranteed to get the slot.

But the situation is pretty different at this point where the superstars should be happy thinking that WrestleMania is even happening. So, for now, The Big Dog had the following to say about McIntyre’s opinion,
“Don’t care where my match falls. Just happy to be healthy and fit enough to participate. Grateful to share the ring with a legend and icon on our industry’s biggest night(s). As should everyone else, in a time like this. Be safe, healthy and grateful.”
