After a youth full of ups and downs, Drew McIntyre has put his head right and has become a reference on the WWE roster. In addition to being a four-time world champion, the Scottish superstar has once held the Intercontinental Championship and twice the Raw Tag Team Championship, making him the 31st wrestler in history to complete the Triple Crown.
He also won the 2020 Royal Rumble match, eliminating the 'Tribal Chief' Roman Reigns last. On September 3, at Clash at the Castle, McIntyre was defeated by Reigns due to interference from Solo Sikoa, thus failing to win the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
Interviewed by Steve Fall for 'NBC Sports Boston', Drew revealed which type of match he hates most.
Drew McIntyre's confession
“I never liked Hell in a Cell match. I've played two and I've always lost.
I've been to the top of the cage a couple of times and it was a terrifying experience, "said Drew McIntyre. “As I was climbing to reach the top of the cage, I felt a fear that I can't even describe. Theoretically, there should be little holes to help you climb, but you are so tense in those moments that you can never find them.
They are invisible ”- he added. Drew also spoke of Vince McMahon's departure: “We were all speechless when we heard the news, it was a shock. In recent years, several athletes have preferred to complain in the newspapers rather than confront him directly.
Many guys were afraid to turn to Vince, but in the end he was the head of the company. There were no alternatives. If you had an important question or concern related to your career, it was him that you should go to. Although he had the last word, he always listened to his employees and never a priori rejected ideas that could improve the show."
Vince's place was taken by his daughter Stephanie and Nick Khan, while Triple H became the new head of the creative team. Drew McIntyre expects WWE fans to see a more real side to his personality if he ever performs as a bad guy again.
“That’s what I’ve enjoyed most about being a good guy in the past year and a half, two years, is I’ve just literally been myself and the crowd have responded positively. Also, if I eventually turn bad again, I won’t just be the big, angry man.
My character will have depth because they’ve been educated on who I really am, and it’ll be more interesting next time around”.
