Drew McIntyre recently opened up about his deep-rooted friendship with fellow WWE star Sheamus and shed light on their memorable triple threat match at WrestleMania 39, featuring the formidable GUNTHER. In an exclusive interview with "Under the Ring," the Scottish superstar shared insights into his special bond with Sheamus and their journey from wrestling in European promotions to becoming prominent figures in WWE.
Describing their connection, McIntyre affectionately stated, "Big brother, little brother is the best way to sum it up. I think I'll have to stop making the age gags [laughs] because I've made them like ten million times." Having faced each other in the ring even before their WWE days, the duo has weathered all the highs and lows of the wrestling industry together.
McIntyre further revealed that he had the honor of being Sheamus' best man at his wedding, cementing their friendship outside the squared circle.
Realizing WrestleMania Dreams: Triple Threat Showdown
Their dream of a singles match at WrestleMania was realized, albeit uniquely, during the triple-threat encounter.
McIntyre recalled their desire to face off against each other at the grandest stage of them all. "It was awesome to have that triple threat. Sheamus and I always dreamed of the singles match at Mania, and we had that, that was the story of the match," he expressed with enthusiasm.
The highly-anticipated bout at WrestleMania 39 saw GUNTHER defending his Intercontinental Championship against McIntyre and Sheamus. The match was nothing short of physical and brutal, showcasing the fierce determination of all three competitors.

Reflecting on the match's conclusion, McIntyre explained how their issues led to an intense clash between him and Sheamus, leaving them vulnerable to GUNTHER's tactical advantage.
Despite the loss, McIntyre cherished the moments of their intense battle, emphasizing the significance of finally having their "singles match" on the grand stage of WrestleMania. With their rivalry far from over, McIntyre will have another chance to challenge GUNTHER for the Intercontinental title at the upcoming SummerSlam.
Fans eagerly anticipate another hard-hitting encounter between the two formidable athletes, who will undoubtedly deliver another show-stopping performance. As McIntyre and Sheamus continue to share their journey as friends and competitors, their story serves as a testament to the enduring friendships formed in the world of professional wrestling, bound by shared experiences and unbreakable bonds.
