Vince McMahon was a huge part of the WWE programming in both the Attitude Era as well as the Ruthless Aggression Era. Many superstars such as Kofi Kingston, Kurt Angle and Bobby Lashley have given accounts of fighting with Vince McMahon.
Drew McIntyre has been having a tremendous career in WWE. As the superstar appeared on an interview with Fightful, he talked to Sean Ross Sapp. The two talked about a lot of WWE PPVs such as SummerSlam, Survivor Series and Royal Rumble.
Ross Sapp talked to McIntyre about his take on Big Show, after which he asked him about Vince McMahon. Citing that Kofi Kingston has talked about fighting McMahon and Kurt Angle claimed to have performed takedowns on him, he asked Drew about his own encounters with McMahon, if any.
McIntyre revealed that the two have never locked horns before. However, he added that knowing that McMahon has wrestled all those people sounds makes him think that he is intimidated.
He’s not, and hearing that he’s done that with all those people, especially Lashley, tells me that he’s intimidated by ol‘ Drew McIntyre. He should be.
Drew McIntyre added that he has an instinctual reaction to people coming up to him. If he thinks that someone is sneaking up on him to try something, his first impulse is to go for the headbutt, and maybe that’s why Vince is intimidated by him.
He knows I’m Scottish as well. That Glasgow kiss that I do, that is a real Scottish thing. Like, if I feel like someone is coming up on me, and trying something with me, it’s almost a reflex that I headbutt the nose, instantly, because I just assume everybody in the world is Bruce Lee. No matter what size they, it breaks the nose so they can’t see, and then go from there in a fighting situation. I think he knows I [Vince] don’t wanna go try ol’ Drew or he might go for that head butt real quick.
Drew McIntyre has had a complex relationship throughout the years. In his early years, he made his name by being alongside Jinder Mahal & Heath Slater. However, he took his leave to work in indie promotions in 2014. After his work at promotions such ICW, PWG and Evolve, he came back with a new spirit, when all was ripe for his taking.
