“We’ll run it back soon” – Drew McIntyre plans to wrestle former WWE Champion again
WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre has promised to take on Bobby Lasley one more time in a recent Twitter post.
In 2019, Drew and Lashley worked on-screen together in WWE as part of a heel trio that also included Baron Corbin. Last year, they began an intense rivalry over the WWE Championship that culminated at Hell in a Cell 2021.
Apart from the Stamford-based promotion, they also worked together in TNA/IMPACT Wrestling during the mid-2010s and feuded over the IMPACT World Heavyweight Championship.
Though the two men have been bitter rivals in the past, there is a lot of healthy respect between Drew and The All Mighty. The latter was recently interviewed by BT Sport and offered some heartfelt comments about The Scottish Warrior.
This prompted Drew to take to Twitter with some kind words, promising Lashley that they would wrestle again soon.
“Whatever company we crossed paths in, whether it was side-by-side or going to war against each other, one thing was clear – respect. I appreciate you big man, we’ll run it back soon enough,” McIntyre wrote.
"Drew is one of my favourite people in the wrestling business, if you want to talk about someone representing the company – he's that guy."
"Everything about him is champion status."
