Drew McIntyre Comments About His WrestleMania 39 Match

Drew McIntyre has reflected on his match against Sheamus and Gunther at WrestleMania 39 for the WWE Intercontinental Championship.

On the latest edition of WWE’s The Bump show, Drew McIntyre appeared as the guest and discussed about several topics. While speaking, McIntyre talked about his WrestleMania 39 match and stated that this triple threat match against Sheamus and Gunther is in the top three of his favorite matches he’s ever had.

One of my favorite matches I’ve ever had is in the top three. And it can be in any position, to be honest, to have a WrestleMania match at that level with Sheamus in there and always make the joke, about, you know, I met him when I was 19. He was 43. And it’s not a joke cause he’s much, much older than me, but I’ve always dreamed about having that big stage match and to have it at WrestleMania finally. And to have GUNTHER in there was so incredibly talented and physical himself was unreal,” said McIntyre. (H/T WrestlingNews.co)

The match took place on the second night of The Show of Shows this year, and it was incredible. The origin of this match started on the March 10th, 2023 episode of Friday Night SmackDown, a fatal five-way match was contested, where the winner would face Gunther for the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania 39. This match ended in a double pinfall, with Drew McIntyre and Sheamus named co-winners. 

Then, WWE announced that Sheamus and Drew McIntyre will face each other the following week to determine the definitive number one contender. However, that match also ended in a no-contest after IMPERIUM (Gunther, Ludwig Kaiser, and Giovanni Vinci) attackinh both superstars. Then, WWE official Adam Pearce decided that GUNTHER will defend his WWE Intercontinental championship against both Drew McIntyre and Sheamus in a triple threat match at WrestleMania 39 on Night 2.

It was incredible match up between GUNTHER, Sheamus and Drew McIntyre. At the end The Ring General GUNTHER retained his title after delivering a powerbomb to get the pinfall victory. It was also The Scottish Warrior Drew McIntyre’s last match before he went on a hiatus. Now, he made a surprise return to WWE at Money in the Bank where he confronted GUNTHER and set his sight on WWE Intercontinental championship.
