“There ain’t nobody, man, and it’s no — I could say my favorite number two, Drew, he’s my favorite number two. There’s a bunch of number twos, threes, whatever you want to call them. We can rank them, it really don’t matter. They’re under me. How far under? Who knows? Who really cares at this point? I mean, how strong of a number two do you want to be, and at this point, my favorite is Drew McIntyre.
WWE Smackdown: Roman Reigns picks Drew McIntyre as someone who could come close to his level
Many a time, Roman Reigns has been seen saying that Drew is his favorite #2. The two titans had a showpiece bout in the last year’s Survivor Series in which Roman Reigns, courtesy of some aid from his cousin Jey Uso managed to sneak past with a victory. Roman continued the interview and said that he would only pass the torch to someone like Drew McIntyre.
“So in a perfect world, if there was an opportunity to pass the torch to him, he’s the one guy I think that has captivated my attention in that manner,” he added. “But at the same time, he ain’t there. And it’s only because I’m still here, so solid, within my foothold, my stronghold. The flag is fully planted in, so I can’t even think about it now. But I mean, John [Cena] needed somebody to come in, so he could move on and try new things and take care of his body. I will eventually need that. But there’s just nobody at this point.”
