WWE news: Drew McIntyre argues Edge vs Randy Orton should main event WrestleMania 36 night one

Drew McIntyre has argued that Edge vs Randy Orton should main event night one of WrestleMania 36 weekend on April 4, not Goldberg vs Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship.

Drew McIntyre will face Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 36, and this match will likely main event night two of the Showcase of Immortals weekend.

However, the main event of night one of WrestleMania 36 is still up in the air, as several matches could fill this slot.

Possible main events for night one include Goldberg vs Roman Reigns for the Universal title, Becky Lynch v Shayna Baszler for the Raw Women’s Championship, Rhea Ripley vs Charlotte Flair for the NXT Women’s Championship, and Edge vs Randy Orton in a Last Man Standing match.

McIntyre has weighed in on the debate of which match should main event night one of WrestleMania 36 weekend, and he believes the honour should be given to The Rated-R Superstar and The Viper for how personal and how well-built their storyline is.

The Scottish Psychopath said during an interview with talkSPORT: “I’ve seen Roman pushing the main event of him and Goldberg, and I respect Roman more than most people in the world, but I won the Royal Rumble, mate. I’m the main event [laughs].

“I’m going to pick Brock and I to main event night two because that’s the one that sends everybody home [proverbial].

“For the first night, I’ll go for… ah, it’s so hard! Because Roman and Goldberg is for the title and that’s very important, it should be the main event. But Edge and Randy Orton is so personal and so well built.

“The situation we’re in isn’t ideal for most people when having matches, but I know these guys. They’re such good sellers and storytellers that it’s going to be like a cinematic masterpiece watching their match. That’s how it looks in my head.

“The way they work and the way their facials and their storytelling, I imagine their match will be more like watching a movie.

“Brock and I, I imagine it’s more like a bar fight, very uncomfortable to watch. Which I think that will be cool to play down the camera to everybody at home, we can be smart about it. So you’ve got to think bigger picture; how can we make this interesting for everybody watching at home? That’s the way I see our match. So I’m going to go with Edge and Randy.”

Reigns responded to McIntyre in a tweet, saying he doesn’t care where his match falls on the WrestleMania 36, he’s just happy to be competing at the event.

The Big Dog said: “Don’t care where my match falls. Just happy to be healthy and fit enough to participate. Grateful to share the ring with a legend and icon on our industry’s biggest night(s). As should everyone else, in a time like this. Be safe, healthy and grateful.”
