Drew McIntyre defeated ‘The Viper’ Randy Orton as he captured the WWE Championship one more time, on the latest edition of Monday Night Raw. The Scottish Psychopath is going to WWE’s upcoming pay-per-view Survivor Series and will face the WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns.
Drew McIntyre has his eyes set on Roman Reigns
WWE Champion Drew McIntyre and WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns might be on the separate brands but in the recent few weeks, they had some showdowns that has ignited a rivalry between the two.
The Tribal Chief has already established himself as the top guy on the blue brand, while The Scottish Psychopath has reclaimed his WWE title from ‘The Viper’ and going into the event he will have high confidence.
Following his victory, Drew McIntyre was interviewed backstage and he sent a message to Reigns. He said, “You told me to go get a title, Roman. Well, I went and got a title. See you on Sunday.”
This is McIntyre’s second WWE title reign, and of course, the first one started at WrestleMania 36 where he conquered ‘The Beast Incarnate. He had lost the title to Randy Orton in a brutal Hell in a Cell match at the namesake pay-per-view.
During the interview, he said that he felt like the first time he had won the title and it is definitely a surreal moment.
He said, “Every time I hear Drew McIntyre WWE Champion, it never gets old.It feels like the first time [I won the title] every time, even though this is technically my second reign. Yet, I feel exactly the same as I did the first time.”

Drew McIntyre and Randy Orton have had a heated rivalry and as we know Orton, he is full of vengeance.
Thus, the rivalry might be far from over as The Viper could come after the WWE Champion pretty soon. But, McIntyre stated that it felt ‘sweeter’ to defeat Orton after the things he had done to him personally.
He said, “The only thing that makes it sweeter is I beat Randy Orton after everything we’ve been through. After everything he put me through personally, after everybody he attacked, and after taking my title away from me at Hell in a Cell, this felt pretty freaking good.”
WWE Survivor Series is set to take place on Sunday, November 22 at WWE Thunderdome at Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.
