Drew McIntyre remains one of the top Superstars in WWE and certainly has a lot of passion for the pro wrestling business. He is a former two-time WWE Champion and was the face of the company during the pandemic era as the WWE Champion. He also has a good relationship with Vince McMahon. McIntyre also has a hilarious reason for all the stories he tells.
Over the past decade or so, WWE Superstars have started making the transition from pro wrestling to Hollywood. The Rock paved the way for Superstars such as Batista and John Cena to find success in Hollywood as well.
While speaking to Shakiel Mahjouri from ET Canada, Drew McIntyre discussed how WWE superstars have become blockbuster attractions in Hollywood, naming John Cena, Batista and more. McIntyre noted that WWE Superstars aren’t just ‘big dumb meatheads.’
“Some of our talent are going out there outside the company proving how talented the performers are. Like you look at “The Rock”. Unbelievable. A top Hollywood actor, made billions of dollars in his movies, has his own company. Cena is branching out. Now, Batista is the one that surprised me the most. He’s so quiet in real life. But he went out there and worked on his craft and he’s a genuinely good actor and he takes it so seriously. They have shown themselves to be capable of so much more than everyone’s perception – Big Dumb meatheads. If you take the time to look at most of our roster, everyone’s basically got a degree. We’ve got a few PhDs. I have a criminology degree. We’re all educated these days. So if you take a second to look at it, you realize, oh, they’re not just big dumb meatheads. They’re actually talented in many ways.”
Drew McIntyre is scheduled to face off against Jinder Mahal at WWE SummerSlam on August 21. We will have to wait and see whether he will end up winning the match or not. What’s your take on WWE Superstars as meatheads? Sound off in the comments!
