Drew McIntyre is currently a mainstay on Monday Night RAW and that has been the case for well over a year now, as he has proven to be up to the task when it matters. He has come a long way since his first WWE run and the results speak for themselves.
According to McIntyre’s new book, A Chosen Destiny, the former WWE Champion talked about the time he took part in a WWE tryout. During that time, McIntyre was performing under the guidance of The Undertaker and Chris Benoit.
Drew McIntyre then added that when he saw The Undertaker and Chris Benoit laughing while they were close to the ring, McIntyre feared the worst and thought they were laughing at him and thought that it was humiliating.
“We rolled around, beat each other up for real. It was very quick, maybe a bit too quick. I remember seeing Undertaker and Chris Benoit laughing close by the ring, and I thought, Oh my goodness, they’re laughing at us! How humiliating.”
Now that Drew McIntyre is a veteran himself with a lot of years under his belt, he realized that McIntyre might have been worried about nothing as the two were likely just laughing at something else entirely.
“Now – having been in that position, close by a ring, during trials – I realise that they were not watching us at all and were almost certainly laughing about something else. At the time I felt a bit disheartened: were we so terrible it was laughable?”
Drew McIntyre is set to challenge Bobby Lashley and Braun Strowman for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania Backlash next week. We will have to see McIntyre will become a three-time champion.
