Drew McIntyre captured the WWE Title at WrestleMania 36. This was the biggest win of his career, but it took place during an uncertain time in history.
While speaking to WWE Backstage, Drew McIntyre was asked whether he felt additional pressure carrying the top title during this time. McIntyre feels no pressure.
Drew McIntyre wants to push forward and continue leading the locker room during this time in WWE history. These are strange and unpredictable times, but WWE is doing everything they can to remain safe and the WWE Universal Champion wants to continue stepping up.
“There’s no pressure, it’s obviously different. Obviously, the circumstances and the environment are unpredictable. You know filming everything from the PC, it’s a closed set, very strict health guidelines following all the health protocols. I had a locker room to myself at WrestleMania.”
“As long as we keep pushing forward, as long as we can stay safe, as long as we can keep putting on original content and keep people entertained during this difficult time like I want us to keep doing it. Everyone wants to keep doing it and I want to be the one leading this ship and I’m really proud of not just myself as champion, but WWE for stepping up during this difficult time in the world.”
Drew McIntyre experienced a very real moment in the ring after his title win over Brock Lesnar. He had the remind himself that it was still WrestleMania even without the fans.
