Drew McIntyre talks about Sting in WWE, 'Taker's streak ending, Going from "The Chosen One" to 3MB
Digital Spy has a great interview with Drew McIntyre, who was promoting Sunday’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view. Here are a few highlights:
Going from being “The Chosen One” to being in 3MB:
“It was obviously night and day, the difference. I went from a Terminator-style character to being in a band, having a good time. For myself, at the time it was pretty good. I did suffer a hand injury and have to get surgery. I wore a cast for about the first seven months of 3MB, I had to get a screw put in my wrist. It gave me a chance to show a different side of my personality, rather than be serious all the time.
“That’s what it’s all about. You can’t just be the same character forever, you’ve got to add some layers, show some personality. That’s what we’re all about – we’re about entertainment, and I’m having a great time right now. One day I’ll maybe get a little serious again and start heading for those titles.”
The Undertaker’s streak ending:
“I was completely in shock. Nobody saw it coming. If anybody happened to miss the finish they would have had unlimited oxygen to breathe because everybody held their breath at the same time! It was just unbelievable. The reaction – just silence. I don’t even know how to describe it. I did not see it coming.
“My dad was at the event, he was frantically calling me! That’s how big it was I guess, my dad’s trying to phone me saying, ‘What’s going on, what’s going on? The Undertaker lost!’ He couldn’t comprehend it, I don’t think anybody could. I know it’s a moment that’ll be remembered. Lesnar is going to go down in history as the man who did it.”
Rumors of Sting debuting in WWE:
“He’s somebody who’s never been in the company, if that was to happen it would obviously be a very big thing, but as I always say – don’t believe everything you read on the internet until it actually happens!”
Drew also discussed his favorite Ultimate Warrior memories, CM Punk, wanting to face Bret Hart, Paul Heyman being the greatest manager and more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
