KEY POINTS

  • Drew McIntyre is scheduled to fight Roman Reigns later this year
  • Reigns and Usos defeated McIntyre and RK-Bro at WrestleMania Backlash
  • Reigns is the current WWE and Universal Champion

Drew McIntyre has said he is interested in teaming up with RK-Bro member Riddle in the WWE.

McIntyre wants to team up with Riddle to take away the Unified Tag Team Championship from The Bloodline members The Usos, Scottish Warrior said on WWE's YouTube Show "The Bump."

The Usos, a wrestling tag team comprising twin brothers Jey Uso and Jimmy Uso, are the current holders of the RAW and SmackDown Tag Team Championship.

Interestingly, The Usos, who already was the SmackDown Championship, claimed the Unified Tag Team Championship by defeating RK-Bro last month, becoming the first-ever team to do so in WWE.

On "The Bump," when McIntyre was asked who would be the perfect partner for him to take the Unified WWE Tag Team title off The Usos, he replied, "I'll go with Riddle, just for what's going on with himself and The Bloodline right now, what he did to Randy, and our short time working together as RK-McBro. He's capable and he's showing it right now of more than just being the goofy guy. He's very physical and very intense. And if you push him, he's going to knock in your butt. So together, we'll be a really cool tag team."

McIntyre, along with RK-Bro, lost to The Bloodline at WrestleMania 38 Backlash earlier this year in a six-man tag team match.

Both McIntyre and Riddle are expected to take on The Bloodline's key member, Roman Reigns, in the coming days.

Riddle recently challenged Reigns' WWE Universal Championship. The two are set to face off against each other on Friday Night's SmackDown. It was earlier reported that a stipulation has been added to the fight, which means that if Riddle loses to Reigns, he would not be allowed to challenge the Tribal Chief again.

Meanwhile, former WWE Champion McIntyre recently locked horns with his old rival Sheamus on last week's episode of SmackDown. The two were competing for a chance to qualify for the Money In The Bank ladder match. However, their fight ended in a no-contest, meaning neither of them qualified for now, according to Sportskeeda.

Reigns and McIntyre's fight is scheduled to take place on Sept. 3 at The Castle.
