It’s not a battle that I’m fighting myself, it’s a battle the world is fighting. "But nevertheless, we’re going to get there, we’ve got WrestleMania over two days now – so no matter what, I’ll still beat Brock Lesnar for the title.
It may not be how I envisioned it in my head, but I assure you, the world’s never going to forget this WrestleMania!” McIntyre has won the Intercontinental Champion one time and the WWE Tag Team Championship, twice.
