Rangers-daft Scots WWE star Drew McIntyre will main event WrestleMania against Brock Lesnar this year.

The grappler, originally from Ayr, won the 2020 Royal Rumble on Sunday evening to seal his passage to the Grandest Stage in Tampa, Florida, later this year.

Formerly of Glasgow company ICW fame, McIntyre hit WWE champion Lesnar with his finishing move the Claymore Kick to send him flying over the top rope - before he went on to win the entire match by last eliminating bookies favourite Roman Reigns.

And last night, on Monday night RAW, McIntyre confirmed he'd be squaring off against the Beast on April 5. "I challenge Brock Lesnar," he told the audience. "Now I can tell you for a fact, most of the boys in the back are terrified of that man. Not me.

"When I walked in the ring last night, I looked into his eyes. Do you know what I saw? I can Claymore this man over the top rope. That's exactly what I did. And you know what else I know? I'm going to beat Brock Lesnar for the WWE title at Wrestlemania."

McIntyre's victory was wildly celebrated in a Glasgow bar showing the event. And the 34-year-old thanked his fans for their overwhelming support.

His beloved Rangers also shared a message of congratulations after he picked up the biggest win of his career in the Rumble. The club posted on social media: "One of our Own - Congratulations, @DMcIntyreWWE".
