There is WWE Legend that believes WWE has a potential big star on their hands.

Drew McIntyre has certainly made an impact on the WWE.

McIntyre has won several titles during his career not only in WWE but in other promotions. He is a former one-time WWE Intercontinental and Tag Team Champion.

Outside of WWE, he wrestled for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (now Global Force Wrestling) where he is former one-time TNA World Heavyweight Champion and one-time Impact Grand Champion.

He has also wrestled extensively on the independent scene. He is a former one-time and longest-reigning WCPW World Champion with What Culture Pro Wrestling, a two-time ICW World Heavyweight Champion with Insane Championship Wrestling and a former Evolve Champion and Tag Team Champion with Evolve.

Following his first run with WWE ended with his release in 2014, McIntyre re-signed with the company in April 2017 and joined developmental brand NXT. If you recall, he appeared at NXT TakeOver: Orlando.

Later on, he won the NXT Championship in August at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III by defeating Bobby Roode. This marks the first time that a Superstar won the NXT Title in his TakeOver in-ring debut.

If you recall, he suffered a torn bicep back in November at an NXT TakeOver event where he lost the title to Andre Almas.

Fast forward to after WrestleMania 34, McIntyre made his return from injury and to the main roster by being paired up with Dolph Ziggler on Monday Night Raw.

WWE Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page spoke with Sportskeeda to talk about various topics and during this interview, he revealed which star could be a top draw for the sports entertainment company. Here is what he had to say:

"Drew McIntyre, who is a stud ... when people say, 'Who is your guy? Who do you think's going to be the next big star to come out of the new guys coming up?' There's no question."

DDP also commented on his dream opponent, which was Randy Orton.

"I would have always liked to have worked with Randy Orton because of the Diamond Cutter and the RKO. I think if Randy was a heel. Randy's not at the top of his game anymore. He's still great in the ring, he looks great - he's just not featured. He was featured for 15 years, he had a hell of a run, but I'd still love to work with him, even if it was today. I'm past that now, but if I could go back in time ten years, it would have been amazing."
