Earlier this month, Drew McIntyre talked about a potential match with John Cena and how he would like for it to happen at WrestleMania 39 in Los Angeles, California in 2023.
Cena later took to Instagram to share a photo of the fellow former WWE Champion.
While speaking to On Demand Entertainment’s Melissa Nathoo, McIntyre doubled down on his desire to get this match booked because it would be their first singles match together.
“One hundred percent, and I hope it does happen. I’ve been around John since I was 22 years old. I just turned 36 last week, I believe it was, and we’ve never had a significant singles match. We’ve actually never had any singles match, which blows my mind. We’ve been in tag matches together, multi-man matches together, and never had a singles match.
Where I’m at today career-wise and managed to reach the top in the industry after so many ups and downs and where John is at, he’s at another level right now. He’s conquered WWE, he’s conquering Hollywood, he still loves WWE more than anything and wants to come back to help and have those big matches. There’s no bigger match as far as I’m concerned than John Cena vs. McIntyre.”
