WWE SmackDown star Drew McIntyre has revealed that he pitched to face Triple H at WrestleMania.
The former two-time WWE Champion has gone on record in the past to credit Triple H for bringing him back to WWE in 2017 as part of the NXT brand.
The two men have never faced in a singles match, but The Scottish Warrior has admitted that it wasn’t for a lack of trying for the match on the biggest stage possible.
Speaking with Alex McCarthy of TalkSPORT, Drew McIntyre admitted to pitching a WrestleMania match against The Game.
“I wanted a match. It’s unfortunate it won’t happen but I’m just glad he’s healthy for himself and his family. He’s the reason I’m back in WWE 100 percent. My mind was set at the time when I wasn’t going to re-sign with IMPACT that I’m going to Japan. I pitched (a match) at every opportunity I could. How about us at WrestleMania? ‘What’s the story?’ [Triple H said] and I’d say ‘What’s the story? We’ll figure it out, but what about you and me at WrestleMania?!’ How awesome would that be We got in the ring together a few times during my first run but when I returned, we did do a match in Japan with myself, Dolph Ziggler and I can’t remember my other partners. But it was against The Good Brothers, AJ Styles and Hunter. That was really cool. We got in the ring together, we didn’t have anything in mind and we just went for it. It was cool to go back and forth a little bit and you understand just how good he is, what a ring general he is. You can see watching, but you don’t know until you’re in there with them just how good. Just some interactions during an 8-man tag in Japan I could tell like ‘wow, he’s really frigging good.’”
Triple H announced his in-ring retirement on March 25 due to health issues. In the interview with the announcement, he stated that there was plans for him to wrestle at WrestleMania 38.
