Drew McIntyre On Being Vince’s “Chosen One”, Leaving WWE, Wrestling Getting A Bad Rap



Drew McIntyre

Former WWE Superstar and current EVOLVE Champion Drew McIntyre recently spoke with STV in Scotland to promote a local indie event. Below are some highlights:

He commented on being Vince McMahon’s “Chosen One” in WWE:

“That has never happened before and will never happen again, Vince endorsing someone like that. I could never be unhappy in the WWE. No matter what they give you. As a kid, I’d have been happy to be Dumpster Droese. But I have big goals. After Vince said what he did, I was always planning on being the best in the world. I’m not happy if I’m not being creatively fulfilled and contributing what I know I could.”

Drew also commented on leaving WWE and his character now:

“It was a good time to separate – I can try out new avenues like TV and film, someone said I should try out for Game of Thrones because I look like those guys. My character at the moment is me. It’s like the Chosen One, but that’s still a bit too much like the Scottish Terminator for me. If it works or not, it will be on my own merit.”

Finally, Drew had some words for pro wrestling’s naysayers:

“There are always going to be people who give it a bad rap. I’d challenge anyone in entertainment to be given their lines at the last second, do their own stunts and only have one take to get it right.”
