Drew McIntyre on why his WWE Championship reign is unique
Drew McIntyre has come a long way in his career in WWE. However, when it comes to his WWE Championship reign, it is very unique as it is taking place at a time when there is no audience physically present in the WWE arenas. He talked about how unique his run has been.
"We're in uncharted waters - Drew McIntyre finally wins the World Title and a worldwide pandemic happens. So, innovating and adapting, and it has been a fun process for me on TV as a character to figure out things, like looking at the camera, and sending little messages to fans at home which we couldn't have done before and making it clear to the rest of the roster, 'hey if the Champ's doing it, we can do it too, let's try new things."
Drew McIntyre also talked about his coming match with Randy Orton. McIntyre is set to face Orton in an Ambulance Match at WWE Clash of Champions, and said that if he can't meet Randy Orton at his level, then he was not deserving of the WWE Championship.
"I've been able to step up and go to Randy's level and swim with him because if I can't swim with Randy Orton I don't deserve to be WWE Champion."
