Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns have been the face and main wrestlers of the company for about a year now. Both hold the title, the first on Monday Night Raw and the second on SmackDown and surely we can say that thanks to great work they have earned these awards.
All the fans of the WWE Universe and even the insiders themselves are now wondering who can be considered the best champion? During UnSKripted Sportkeeda Wrestling, former WWE creative team member Vince Russo tried to answer this question.
Vince Russo on Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre
During his speech, Vince Russo made the following statements: "I have to say guys since his arrival Drew McIntyre has really worked hard for the company and has done just everything WWE asked him to do.
The only thing that has lowered the value of his character in quotes is the decisions of the creative team, in very dire situations. There's no reason Drew McIntyre couldn't be considered one of the best of all time, but WWE appears to have made several mistakes on the character.
Who is better between Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre? I love Roman and I know that he is doing a great job, but Drew is really destroying himself for WWE, he is doing an incredible job and for this reason between the two I choose the WWE Champion."
From WrestleMania 36 Drew McIntyre is doing a great job and removed a short period where he gave the WWE Championship title to Randy Orton, has long held the scepter on Monday Night Raw and has beaten opponents of the caliber of Randy Orton and recently also Bill Goldberg with which was the protagonist of a great success.
In a few days, the WWE Champion will have to compete in the Pay per View of Elimination Chamber is one of the most difficult matches as he will have to defend the title against 5 other competitors, namely Kofi Kingston, AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy, Randy Orton and Sheamus, a great friend of the champion who recently broke this friendship in order to aim for the title.
Since turning heel and winning the WWE Universal Championship, Roman Reigns has been dominant on the blue brand of WWE. The Tribal Chief defended his title against his cousin Jey Uso before the former tag team champion joined Reigns' entourage.
Reigns has also successfully defended his belt against Kevin Owens on a few occasions. He most recently beat the former WWE Universal Champion at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. The Tribal Chief also holds a notable win over current WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.
