WrestleMania 36 was a big night for Drew McIntyre as he finally reached the top of the mountain in WWE. He is WWE Champion, but The Rock knew Drew had it in him a long time ago.
Drew McIntyre took a moment to throw a shout-out to The Rock. TMZ interviewed Dwayne Johnson months ago before McIntyre was even in the title picture. The Great One said to watch McIntyre and those words meant a lot to hear.
“I wasn’t showing my personality like I have been and I wasn’t on a winning streak or anything. He pointed me out. I think it’s interesting when guys like Vince McMahon and The Rock when they see something in somebody that others don’t or you don’t see in yourself.”
McIntyre sent a thank you to The Rock for believing in him. It was certainly a cool moment for Drew McIntyre to receive a random boost of confidence from the People’s Champion like that.
