• Triple H Compares Possible Champion vs. Champion Match To Hulk Hogan/Ric Flair & The Rock/Steve Austin Feuds
While speaking on the RAW panel at New York Comic Con, WWE EVP Triple H discussed a potential Champion vs. Champion match between Universal Champion Roman Reigns and WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.
Below is what he said:
“The draft is always an exciting time because it creates these – I think in some ways the fantasy moments like I’ll be honest I don’t want to see Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns yet.
I would love to see that percolate because I think that a couple of years down the road Roman Reigns versus Drew McIntyre is a Hulk Hogan/Ric Flair scenario, is a Rock/Stone Cold Steve Austin scenario, and you don’t want to hit that before it peaks.
That’s what makes the draft so exciting to me is those moments in time where you were like, ‘well, what if?’ and then ‘what if’ becomes a reality.”
The match is still considered a big deal due to both men’s current positions in WWE, but it already happened a couple of times in 2019. They even had a match at WrestleMania 35, where Reigns beat McIntyre.
