Drew McIntyre on sharing screen space with Hulk Hogan- 'Inside as a wrestling fan, I'm screaming'
"Surreal. My dad texted me afterwards. He also posted a picture on Facebook...a picture of Hogan and me doing the speech- 'What you gonna do brother, when Drew McIntyre and Hulk Hogan run wild on you?' We're doing the speech together. He sent me a message- 'Remember watching WrestleMania 7 with your brother? As a 7-year old, 6-year old. And Hogan being the man back then?'" said Drew McIntyre.
Drew McIntyre may be on top of the world as the WWE Champion, but he maintains that he's still amazed at the opportunities he gets.
"I tried to play it cool. 'Yeah dad, I'm the WWE Champion and Hogan wants to hang out with me. But realistically, inside as a wrestling fan, I'm screaming. And it's absolutely incredible that I get these cool opportunities. Like performing Hulk Hogan's shtick with Hulk Hogan. (Laughs)"
