WWE champion Drew McIntyre spoke with Sportskeeda where the Scottish Psychopath talked about Hall of Famer Edge’s return at the Royal Rumble, and hyped a possible future showdown. Highlights are below.
Worried about fans turning on the Rumble after Edge’s elimination:
Edge was returning at the end after a nine-year absence from the company. People thought they’d never see him again. He returned at the Rumble and we’ve seen crowds turn on certain superstars if they don’t get the winner that they wanted. So that was in the back of my mind, I guess, while I was out there. That wow… when Edge gets eliminated and it’s Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns, they might just turn on the match.
Having a singles match with Edge down the line:
You know Edge had this amazing career. I was thankful that I traveled the world with him. Learned a lot from him as a kid, but to see him back… of course, the wheels started turning. And I thought to myself, ‘Oh yeah, we’re going to have that big match.’ I’m absolutely ready for that big match now, you know, physically and mentally.
