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. McIntyre also has a high opinion of Austin Theory’s current push.
McIntyre was introduced as The Chosen One by Vince McMahon as many thought he was destined for greatness. While he did find some success, McIntyre didn’t become a huge star during his first run with the company.
On the other hand, Austin Theory has seen a ton of growth over the past year. This is especially true thanks to his storyline with Vince McMahon. While speaking with Sportskeeda, Drew McIntyre explained why Austin Theory’s current push is better than his push as The Chosen One.
“I think this has been approached a lot better than mine. I was Vince (McMahon’s) Chosen One, but only interacted with him maybe two or three times on television. Mr. McMahon has a very strong presence in this particular story with Theory, he’s not only there by name, when Theory talks about him, he’s also physically there a lot of the time as part of the story and give Theory that rub.
And again, he’s a young guy, but he looks phenomenal and he’s got a great attitude, he works incredibly hard and if he keeps on the path he’s on right now, which being a random the way I have, I’ve got a good feeling about him, he’s gonna do good for us in the future.”
Austin Theory is currently the United States Champion and it is clear the company is very high on him right now. We’ll have to see how he will be booked as the champion in the coming weeks.
