Drew McIntyre is not in favor of Logan Paul and other celebrities receiving championship opportunities in WWE.

In an interview with MySanAntonio.com, McIntyre was asked about Paul challenging Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia next month, and he responded as follows:

“I understand why this is happening and I’m getting celebrities involved, especially those who give their all, and we’ve had a few. Logan Paul has done a great job, but I don’t know how to fight for it. titles. I think titles should be for people who have worked the map and put in the time. It’ll be a show and Roman will break it down and people will talk about it. That’s what it’s all about I guess I just have a different view of titles as I was talking about leading the game with Roman.”

McIntyre has a unique perspective in that it took many years of hard work and dedication to work his way onto the main event stage and become world champion.

Although he was nicknamed “The Chosen One” during his first stint with WWE from 2007 to 2014, he never made it to the top and was released from his contract. After rebuilding himself in promotions around the world, McIntyre returned to WWE in 2017.

McIntyre won the 2020 Royal Rumble match and defeated Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36 to win the WWE Championship for the first time in his career.

Meanwhile, Paul has only had two matches in WWE, and he’s already set to face Reigns in the main event of Crown Jewel for the world title.

Paul has shown a remarkable aptitude for professional wrestling during his short time in the company, and he’ll no doubt generate a ton of crossover appeal, but it’s understandable that some full-time wrestlers in WWE may not like- be not the idea that he is already pushed up.

Ultimately, it’s likely that Reigns will beat Paul and push him down the card, but that could still be a tough pill for McIntyre to swallow after falling short in his world title match against Reigns at Clash at the Castle last month.
