WWE Champion Brock Lesnar respects Drew McIntyre and is very invested in their WrestleMania 36 angle. McIntyre won the 2020 Men’s Royal Rumble Match to earn a world title shot at WrestleMania and picked Lesnar as his opponent for the Show of Shows.
It really shows the amount of respect between the two men and it really shows how good a match we’re going to get
The Scottish Terminator now has the golden opportunity to become the first ever British world champion when he takes on The Beast on April 5 at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
The WWE Champion’s kayfabe persona as well as his advocate Paul Heyman claims the No1 Contender doesn’t deserve to face him at the Showcase of the Immortals.
According to Sportskeeda’s Tom Colohue, however, the UFC Hall of Famer actually has a lot of respect for McIntyre and the feeling appears to be mutual.
Lesnar is determined to get that angle over and put together a stunning encounter at the Grandest Stage of Them All.

The eight-time world champion proved his commitment on RAW last Monday night when he had an intense confrontation with McIntyre.
The Scottish Psychopath destroyed the ex-UFC Heavyweight Champion with three Claymore kicks and made the crowd go wild with excitement.

The ex-Universal Champion heard the crowd demanding another Claymore and got back up to his feet to receive his foe’s finisher one more time.
The MMA hero was also heard ordering the Scotsman to pick up the Universal Championship and lift it over his head after delivering his second Claymore.
Colohue told the Dropkick DiSKussions podcast: “In addition to that, when you hear the crowd chanting one more time, Brock Lesnar heard it, Lesnar got up. He showed for it.
“Lesnar is doing everything he can to put Drew McIntyre over and he’s been doing that since the Royal Rumble match. Brock is really invested in this and it’s great to see.

McIntyre was always highly rated in WWE as Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon endorsed him as a future world champion back in 2009.
But his first stint didn’t work out as he was fired in 2014 following a hapless stint with Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal in 3MB.
After regaining his confidence in the independent scene as well as TNA, McIntyre returned to WWE in 2017 and has been on fire ever since.
