Roman Reigns is the head of the table in WWE and he wouldn’t accept anyone as the #1 above him but a strong #2. The Tribal Chief is still the WWE Universal Champion as he leads Edge at Money in the Bank, but if he wishes the torch will be given to Drew McIntyre.
while talking to Cheap Heat with Peter Rosenberg, Roman Reigns was asked who is directly under him in WWE. Reigns said we could list #2 and #3 all day, but he’s still the top dog in WWE, no matter what brand you’re talking about.
Drew McIntyre had an impressive performance as WWE Champion during his Thunderdome days, knocking out Brock Lesnar in front of Zero Live fans at WrestleMania 36. He carried that title through the Thunderdome until Bobby Lashley was able to topple him, and remained the All Mighty WWE Champion.
If given his preference, Roman Reigns said he would give the torch to Drew McIntyre.
“I can say my favorite #2, Drew. That’s my favorite #2, 3 whatever you want to call them. We can rank them. It doesn’t matter, they’re under me. How low? Really Who knows? Who really cares at this point? I mean how strong do you want #2’s to be at this point, and right now my favorite is Drew McIntyre.
“So, in a perfect world if he had the opportunity to pass the torch, I think he’s the kind of person who got my attention that way, but at the same time he’s not there and it’s only because I ‘ I’m still here and my feet, so solid inside my citadel. So, the flag is firmly in place, so I can’t even think about it right now, but I mean you know John [Cena] Somebody needed to come in so she could go and do other things and take care of her body, I’ll need it eventually, but there isn’t any at the moment. “
It remains to be seen what happens next for Roman Reigns. A rumored match against The Rock is always a possibility and the Great One could return as early as Survivor Series. Then, WWE will take The Rock with them whenever their busy schedule works.
