Drew McIntyre is considered one of the top Superstars in WWE and there is no doubt he has a ton 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. McIntyre is always open to giving advice to his peers whenever they need it.
Ever since the Royal Rumble pay-per-view last year, Drew McIntyre was featured in the WWE Championship picture and that includes numerous title matches against Bobby Lashley. Many fans felt McIntyre has been in the title picture for far too long.
McIntyre lost to Bobby Lashley during this year’s Hell In A Cell pay-per-view and that finally brought an end to him being in the WWE Title picture all the time, much to the relief of fans.
While speaking with CBS Sports, Drew McIntyre talked about live crowds returning after over a year of absence. McIntyre admitted that fans had seen too much of him by that point in time.
“I remember that particular time. It was amazing that the fans stayed so positive for such a long time and the only way we could gauge it was social media. Generally, they are the harshest critics. So they were positive for such a long time until, I think I had wrestled with Lashley a couple of times.
Even though it had technically only been maybe two matches, it felt like it’d be going on for a long time. Perhaps we didn’t do as many interesting things as we could and should have done to keep fans invested. I think they were just over that particular storyline. By the time fans were coming back, there was still a bit of a feeling like we’d had a lot of Drew in our face, which we had.
Realistically, we had Drew McIntyre at the top of the card for a year and a half, which in today’s day and age might as well be 20 years with the short attention spans that people have. I was aware of that fully when the crowds were coming back, especially at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view. So as soon as I got the opportunity to cover for all earlier in the night, I had the money in the bag. If you go back and watch it, you hear the initial reaction. When I appeared, I was just glad to hear the noise. Like, there was a lot of cheers, but also some boos mixed in there as well.
As reported earlier, Drew McIntyre is out of action with a neck injury. We will have to wait and see when The Scottish Warrior will make his triumphant return to WWE television.
