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 is also never afraid to give advice to his peers whenever needed.

During the pandemic era of WWE, Drew McIntyre would regularly go off tangent and talk about bizarre stories during interview segments, which he dubbed Storytime With Drew. The segments were eventually done away with once live audiences made their return.

While speaking with Shakiel Mahjouri of CBS Sports, Drew McIntyre talked about the WWE Universe getting tired of him last year. McIntyre explained why he dropped the Storytime With Drew segments for good.

“I know at that time we had been trying the storytime with Drew that everyone loved so much, especially me,” Drew McIntyre sarcastically said. “I knew it wasn’t going to connect to the live audience. So as soon as I got to cut a promo at Money in the Bank if you go back and watch it, you’ll hear the initial reaction when I appeared. There was a lot of cheers, but also some boos mixed in there as well. If you watch the duration of the promo, I was back to being just regular Drew.


I wasn’t trying any outside-the-box things like storytime with Drew. I instantly dropped that crap the second the crowd came back. I knew it wasn’t gonna work with a live audience. You can hear them cheering by the end of the interview from that moment forward. I kept with what I know works, what brought me to the dance as a main event player, which is just me [with] the volume turned up.”

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 return to WWE television.
