WWE star Drew McIntyre recently spoke with Newsday on a number of topics including his status with the company.

McIntyre said, “I can say I’m having fun. And I hope to continue to have fun, no matter what. I’m still young, I’m in my prime. I’m gonna be wrestling. If I’m not, you know, one of the featured players, if I’m not making a significant difference to the show, and the business as a whole, then quite frankly, I don’t want to be there.”

His thoughts on CM Punk:

“My thing is, if I really don’t like you, I shouldn’t be there, because I might punch you in the face . . . I don’t want to give away too much right now. But the story isn’t really a story. It’s real. And people are feeling it’s real. And they can see how much fun I’m having at his expense. And . . . there is a really good reason for that. And maybe we’ll get to tell that story, eventually. We just need Punk to not injure himself in rehab and make it back to WWE, or not injure himself driving to the show or walking to the show since he’s made of glass.”

The recent changes to his character:

“As a smiley, sword-wielding Scotsman . . . there were limitations and a wall I would hit. Right now there’s absolutely no limits. I can use all my creativity… A lot of people say, Wow, you know, the new Drew is great.’ But if you ever check out my independent work when I was gone from WWE from 2014 to 2017, you’ll see, ‘Wait actually, that’s just kind of the real Drew, with the volume turned up at times.’”
