Former WWE Raw Executive Director Paul Heyman spoke with Alex McCarthy of TalkSport to promote this Sunday’s Survivor Series pay per view, where his new client, Universal champion Roman Reigns, will be battling WWE champion Drew McIntyre in the evening’s main event matchup. Hear what he had to say about the Scottish Psychopath and the Tribal Chief below.
Praises Drew McIntyre as a god:
If Drew McIntyre wasn’t in a new stratosphere every day, every Monday, I wouldn’t be intrigued with him stepping into the ring with Roman Reigns. The fact is that several years ago, on television, I told Roman Reigns at the time, he was the right guy, in the right place, at the wrong time. Because it wasn’t time for him to emerge as the single biggest superstar in all of WWE, be it RAW, SmackDown, NXT and indeed, all of sports entertainment. Now is that time for Roman Reigns. The problem here is that Drew McIntyre is a god sent to WWE. A magnificent performer. A tremendous human being. A fantastic representative of the WWE brand. He will end up with a championship reign that will be deserving of the Mount Rushmore of championship reigns.
Says McIntyre holds the secondary title because Roman Reigns is the top guy:
The problem is that Drew McIntyre is the right guy, at the right place, at the wrong time. Because Drew McIntyre is always going to be the biggest superstar with the secondary championship because it’s not the championship that makes the man, it’s the man that makes the championship and the – T-H-E – the biggest single superstar in all of WWE, right now, is Roman Reigns. And deservedly so. And Roman Reigns this Sunday will demonstrate why he is the biggest superstar, the most important champion. And Drew McIntyre, as great as he is – and he is great – is going to have to accept the fact that he secondary to Roman Reigns.
