Reigns defeated McIntyre at WrestleMania 35 on his first Singles Match since coming back from a four-month battle with leukaemia.
But The Scottish Psychopath hasn’t been disheartened by that loss as he pointed out that The Undertaker, who holds the most impressive win-loss record of 24-2 at Mania, also fell to The Big Dog at the Show of Shows.
The Scottish Terminator is now concentrated on the WWE tour which will see RAW and SmackDown superstars performing this week at The O2 in London and Bournemouth.
The ex-NXT Champion is also looking forward to Money in the Bank where he will compete in the annual Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match against Ricochet, Braun Strowman, Baron Corbin, Randy Orton, Ali, Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor and Andrade.
Sure, WrestleMania did not go to plan
If the ex-Intercontinental Champion wins the briefcase then he will get a perfect opportunity to become the first ever British world champion as he will be guaranteed a title shot at any time and place he wishes within the next 12 months.
McIntyre said during an international conference call: “Money in the Bank would be a huge victory and I’m here to stay top of the card.
“But every RAW and live event is an opportunity to prove myself.
“Sure, WrestleMania did not go to plan.
“But there’s no shame in losing at WrestleMania to Roman Reigns.
“Undertaker lost to him at WrestleMania too, so I just look at the next match and the goal is clear in my mind and the future is inevitable.
“I plan to prove myself in the UK this week, I plan to prove myself at Money in the Bank and get the briefcase and finally get that Universal title.”
McIntyre returned to the WWE main roster in 2017 following a disappointing first stint in the company that saw him being let go in 2014.
Ever since, the two-time tag team champion has been on fire as he has beaten the likes of Dolph Ziggler, Dean Ambrose and recently-crowned Universal Champion Seth Rollins.
The 33-year-old Ayr-born grappler also picked up a dominant win over WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle as he made him tap out to his own finisher the Ankle Lock.
