Drew McIntyre remains one of the top Superstars in WWE and is a former two-time WWE Champion. McIntyre has faced off against the best of the best stars in the company. He also opened up about Bobby Lashley’s recent fall during a recent WWE live event.
During a recent WWE live event in England, Bobby Lashley squared off against Drew McIntyre in a singles match. During the match, one of the ring ropes broke and Bobby Lashley fell to the outside.
While speaking with Shakiel Mahjouri for SHAK Wrestling and CBSSports, Drew McIntyre opened up about the accident as it happened to him in real-time.
“For me, it was very quick yet very slow at the same time. When trouble happens, things seem to slow down for me and I’m very aware of what’s going on. I knew when I hit the ropes, something went wrong. I was able to catch myself very quickly and was watching straight ahead, and saw how Lashley went over. So the rope broke as I connected. He was a split second behind me. He had no rope. He went into what should have been the top rope and he continued head over heels at the speed he was going.
Thankfully, I could see how he landed,” McIntyre said. “He went head over heels. Those giant traps hit the ring apron. His head didn’t connect with the ring apron, thankfully. He flipped himself right around onto the mat outside. I could see he was probably going to be OK.
Knowing him, he’d be OK. A guy who just likes to roll around and fight during the day, and take unnecessary falls during the day. I always say, ‘no cameras are watching right now. Why are you doing this to yourself?’ But he enjoys the physicality. I could see he landed safely, and knowing him, I knew he’d be okay. And thankfully, he was okay. In those situations, you can only hope for the best-case scenario. Accidents do happen.”
Drew McIntyre is set to team up with Team RK-Bro and square off against The Bloodline at WrestleMania Backlash. You can check out the full card for the premium live event here. Hopefully, the ring stays together for the big event.
