As noted, Lesnar will enter the contest first and will have to outlast 29 other stars to win the match.
“Brock Lesnar going in one as the champion,” Drew said when asked how #1 entrant Lesnar will affect the dynamic. “It’s really never happened like this before. It’s not some guy doing it either. It’s Brock Lesnar. A once-in-a-lifetime athlete. I think it’s going to be interesting. I hope he is in there when I am. There hasn’t been a confrontation between myself and Brock since I came back.”
McIntyre added, “I also have a lot of experience. I’m very excited for that potentially happening.”
Obviously, the winner of this bout will have the choice of picking which title they choose to challenge for at WrestleMania 36. Whether that be Lesnar for the WWE Title or the winner of Strap Match between Daniel Bryan and WWE Universal Champion Bray Wyatt.
If McIntyre wins the contest then he already knows which title he will be challenging for, which is the WWE Title as he wants to wrestle Lesnar at the biggest event of the year for WWE.
“If I won the Rumble, it’s the same guy I’ve had in mind for years. I’d fight Brock Lesnar in a second,” McIntyre declared. “A lot of people on the roster genuinely wouldn’t want to get in the ring with him. They are terrified of the idea. I want to get in the ring with him. I know we could put on a heck of a spectacle and a fight. There aren’t many who can stand toe-to-toe with me. That’s someone I definitely want.
McIntyre also talked about bringing the WWE Title back to Raw on a regular basis unlike with Lesnar, who works a part-time schedule.
“He gets this criticism that he doesn’t show up to work all the time and this and that. The way I look at it, he was offered the contract. He signed the contract. It’s not his fault. The only problem I have is the title is not on the shows and live events. We need the title back. I have no personal issues with him. Who wouldn’t sign that contract? I just want that opportunity to get the title back on Raw because it belongs on the shows and live events.”
