Drew McIntyre is currently one of the top Superstars in WWE, and he clearly loves his profession. He is a former 2-time WWE Champion and has accomplished a lot in the company already. He also admitted his creative frustrations with WWE last year.
Last year, Drew McIntyre was in a very weird place after the ThunderDome era ended and live fans came back. He found himself in meaningless feuds among other things.
While speaking to New York Newsday, Drew McIntyre talked about his frustrations with his creative direction in WWE. McIntyre admitted he had trouble navigating through uninteresting storylines.
“It got to a point where things went off track, in my opinion a little bit. And it was hard to tell, without the live fans there, if it would have been okay. Right about the time where I fought Lashley a couple of times, I was telling these interesting—or, not so interesting—Scottish stories. That period maybe was not one of my favorites. But, hey, send me a challenge and I’m going to try and pull it off.
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.”
Drew McIntyre is set to team up with Team RK-Bro and face off against The Bloodline at WrestleMania Backlash this Sunday. It remains to be seen who will win the match.
