Drew McIntyre is one of the highlights of the WWE main roster, as he reinvented himself after a hiatus from the company. He was one of the biggest stars during the initial period of the pandemic in WWE. He also opened up about his mental health issues.

Mental health is a serious issue and many people suffer from many mental health issues. This includes pro wrestlers, as the industry can be a very taxing one for many.

While speaking with Ad Council’s Seize the Awkward campaign, Drew McIntyre opened up about his mental health issues. McIntyre admitted he struggled as a face when facing his own issues.

“When I was younger, I kept everything inside, it was not healthy. It bubbled over, and affected my life. As soon as I was open and honest I was able to let everybody within my support group know how I was feeling, that built my mind back to where it needed to be. And I have had a few friends reach out and tell me they’re not in a good place, it is not easy as a guy, especially, being open – and that I believe is true strength” 


Drew McIntyre is set to team up with Team RK-Bro and square off against The Bloodline at WrestleMania Backlash. We’ll have to see how the match will turn out to be.
