Drew McIntyre is a prominent name in the WWE, and he is one of the top superstars on Raw. He had a remarkable match against Finn Balor at TLC, but he lost the match after Dolph Ziggler interfered. Currently, he is having a feud with Finn Balor and Dolph Ziggler. As a matter of fact, he is set to face Balor and Ziggler next week on Raw.

McIntyre's first WWE run was bland, and he did not have any notable success. WWE released him in 2014, but he earned his name on the independent circuit. Subsequently, he returned to WWE in 2017 and became the NXT champion. He was promoted to the main roster this year, and he has become an elite superstar of the red brand.

WrestleMania is less than four months away, and McIntyre needs an outstanding opponent for WrestleMania 35. He might continue his feud with Balor and Ziggler till Royal Rumble, but they are not WrestleMania worthy opponents for McIntyre. He needs to face a top-notch superstar at WM 35 if he is to make his mark.

Here we discuss the three best opponents for Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 35.

#3 Braun Strowman

The Monster Among MenThe Monster Among Men

Braun Strowman is undoubtedly a great choice to fight McIntyre at WrestleMania 35. As a matter of fact, Strowman could not cash in his Money in the Bank contract successfully, as he was a victim of The Shield. Eventually, he joined the team of Ziggler and McIntyre to fight The Shield. However, they got separated a few months ago, and this could lead to an intense rivalry at WrestleMania.


Presently, Strowman is one of the popular names of the WWE, and he has achieved a lot in his career. He has been in the title picture since last year, but he has not managed to win the Universal title. He won the Raw tag team titles, Money in the Bank and the Greatest Royal Rumble this year.

Strowman will fight Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble, and it will be interesting to see if he wins his first Universal title. However, a rivalry between Strowman and McIntyre will be awe inspiring. They are impressive in the squared circle, and they are capable of stealing the show.

#2 Brock Lesnar

The Universal Champion Brock LesnarThe Universal Champion Brock Lesnar

Currently, Brock Lesnar is the Universal Champion, and McIntyre can be an ideal challenger for him at WrestleMania 35. Roman Reigns was the last man to pin Lesnar, but he has left the company due to illness. Therefore, McIntyre can be a serious candidate to pin Lesnar, winning his maiden Universal title at WrestleMania 35.

Lesnar is one of the greatest superstars in the history of WWE, and he has achieved a lot of success in his career. He won the WWE world title four times, the Universal title twice, and the Royal Rumble once. But the ultimate feat of his career was when he broke the Undertaker's WrestleMania streak.

Lesnar's last Universal title run was astonishing, and his title reign lasted 504 days. Similarly, his second Universal title reign is likely to be impressive. McIntyre is well-built, & swift in the squared circle, and he could be a believable candidate to pin the Universal Champion.  

#1 The Undertaker

The PhenomThe Phenom

The Phenom is a dream opponent for any superstar, and McIntyre could be the perfect choice to fight The Undertaker. It will undeniably lift the stature of McIntyre if he locks horns with The Undertaker.

In fact, Undertaker fought John Cena at WrestleMania 34, and won the match comfortably. His last appearance was at Crown Jewel where he had a tag team match against DX.

The Undertaker is one of the popular names in the history of professional wrestling, and he has been wrestling in WWE for 28 years. He has a long list of achievements in his illustrious career, and he has won several titles.

However, the Phenom's most notable achievement was the WrestleMania streak which Brock Lesnar broke at WrestleMania 30. He has participated in 26 WrestleMania matches, and he has had numerous extraordinary opponents.

The Undertaker and McIntyre are evenly matched in appearance, and they are capable of having an awe-inspiring match. The match would be highly beneficial for McIntyre, even if he loses.
