Drew McIntyre is 'God sent to WWE' but is second biggest star in promotion behind Roman Reigns, claims Paul Heyman

DREW MCINTYRE is a 'God sent to WWE' but only their secondary star behind Roman Reigns, claimed Paul Heyman.

Heyman has been managing Reigns since August, the same month the star won the Universal title.

Scotsman McIntyre – who was beaten by the former Shield member at WrestleMania 35 – on the other hand recently regained his WWE title.

It now sets him up to face Reigns at Survivor Series in a battle of the champions.

But despite defeating Randy Orton to reclaim his gold, Heyman has backed his man as the biggest draw in the WWE.

And he reckons McIntyre is unfortunately 'the right guy, at the right place, at the wrong time' as he competes with Reigns for the top spot.

He told talkSPORT: “If Drew McIntyre wasn’t in a new stratosphere every day, every Monday, I wouldn’t be intrigued with him stepping into the ring with Roman Reigns.

“The fact is that several years ago, on television, I told Roman Reigns at the time, he was the right guy, in the right place, at the wrong time.

"Because it wasn’t time for him to emerge as the single biggest superstar in all of WWE, be it RAW, SmackDown, NXT and indeed, all of sports entertainment.

"Now is that time for Roman Reigns.

"The problem here is that Drew McIntyre is a god sent to WWE. A magnificent performer.

"A tremendous human being. A fantastic representative of the WWE brand.

"He will end up with a championship reign that will be deserving of the Mount Rushmore of championship reigns.

“The problem is that Drew McIntyre is the right guy, at the right place, at the wrong time.

“Because Drew McIntyre is always going to be the biggest superstar with the secondary championship because it’s not the championship that makes the man, it’s the man that makes the championship.

“And the – T-H-E – the biggest single superstar in all of WWE, right now, is Roman Reigns. And deservedly so.

"And Roman Reigns this Sunday will demonstrate why he is the biggest superstar, the most important champion.

“And Drew McIntyre, as great as he is – and he is great – is going to have to accept the fact that he secondary to Roman Reigns.”
