Vince McMahon has his own way of looking for talent. Sometimes he has to wait for that start to bring out their own potential.
Drew McIntyre was introduced to the WWE Universe as “The Chosen One.” Vince McMahon put him over in a big way, and that eventually led to McIntyre’s first run with the company.
While speaking to the Broken Skull Sessions, Drew McIntyre discussed how Vince McMahon can go about bringing a Superstar to the next level so they reach their true potential.
“It’s interesting, you know, he can see things in you that you perhaps can’t see in yourself. And it takes perhaps a while for the talent to bring it out, if he ever brings it out. But he can see it in there, and it’s a case of can he bring it out or inevitably it’s gonna have to be you that brings it out – and sometimes it takes a long time to get there, and when he finally goes, ‘I saw it in you, it’s cool that it finally came out.'”
Drew McIntyre was released by WWE, and he eventually made his way back. He proved his worth on the indies, and soon brought that true potential upon his return to Vince McMahon’s company.
Vince McMahon has his own way of dealing with Superstars. It doesn’t work for everyone, but when it does he’s happy to tell people that he saw it in them all along.
