Drew McIntyre remains one of the top Superstars in WWE and is a former two-time WWE Champion. McIntyre has worked very hard to get to where he is in the company as it was not smooth sailing for him. McIntyre also defended Vince McMahon’s focus on scripted promos.
Lately in WWE, most Superstars are always handed a script which they have to memorize and speak as part of their promos. A large section of the WWE Universe does not like scripted promos as they feel it highly restricts the characters of WWE Superstars.
While speaking with Newsday, Drew McIntyre addressed criticism of WWE’s scripted nature of promos. The Scottish Warrior defended Vince McMahon’s focus on scripted promos.
“I would not do something that I’m convinced is not going to work, unless I’m told by the man himself [WWE chairman Vince McMahon], ‘You’re doing this,’ which, he’s not going to do. A lot of people would just take the paper and complain privately to people in the locker room, perhaps, or to themselves, and then, maybe down the line, if they’re not with the company anymore, in interviews, rather than trying to work together with the creative writer you’re with and saying, ‘It doesn’t feel like me.’ And if you really feel strongly about it, go to the boss himself.
I know a lot of people are intimidated to go to Mr. McMahon. But, in the end, he’s the boss of the company where you work. In an office, if you want a promotion, or if you have a significant question about your life and career, you go to the manager of the office. In our world, Vince gets the final say. And he’s very open. His door is always open. He’s always going to listen. If you feel strongly about something, he wants to hear your opinion, because he wants the best show possible.”
Drew McIntyre also had many light bulb moments with Vince McMahon. We’ll have to see how his feud with Roman Reigns will be booked in the coming weeks.
