Drew McIntyre has stated that he believes there should be two World Championships in WWE if the brand split is to continue.
In 2016, when Raw and SmackDown once again drafted exclusive rosters, both the WWE and Universal Titles were regarded as the company’s top prizes. At WrestleMania 38, Roman Reigns defeated Brock Lesnar in a Winner Takes All title unification bout to become the WWE Universal Champion
Speaking with the New York Post, McIntyre argued that if WWE is going to keep two separate rosters, the company should have two top titles:
“If we’ve got separate rosters, I kind of prefer the idea of a champion for each show. At the same time, we just had WrestleMania and we needed a huge match. Brock had one title, Roman had the other title.
“It made for a very interesting … I don’t want to use the word stupendous, but it made for a very, very big match and now we are kind of with in the fall out of that huge match, that huge WrestleMania and we’ll see what happens.
“I kind of like the idea of a champion representing each brand. We have those separate brands, so somebody has to take down Roman at least for one of those titles.
At WrestleMania Backlash, McIntyre will team with RK-Bro to face off against The Bloodline. Prior to this bout being announced, RK-Bro and The Usos were slated to do battle in a Raw & SmackDown Tag Team Championship unification contest.
Following this original match announcement, and speculation that WWE was planning to end the brand split, a report revealed WWE’s plans for the Raw and SmackDown brands moving forward.
