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 revealed the important advice that The Undertaker gave him.
The Scottish Warrior had a long and hard path to success in WWE. He was introduced as The Chosen One by Vince McMahon but he never quite found success during his first run in WWE.
He came back to WWE in 2017 and since then, has seen a great deal of success. While speaking to Sports Illustrated, Drew McIntyre revealed the important piece of advice The Undertaker gave him.
“As Undertaker once told me, ‘Don’t play the wrestler. Be the wrestler. At the time, ’Taker was my mentor, a role assigned by Vince [McMahon], and I had no idea what he was talking about. I was a wrestler, obviously, right? Now, almost 15 years later, I have a much different appreciation for his lessons. I know who I am every time I step out there, and I know what I’m aiming for, and that’s Roman.”
McIntyre also struggled with mental health issues in the past. McIntyre is likely to square off against Roman Reigns at WWE Clash at the Castle in Cardiff in September. We’ll have to see when the company will start booking the feud.
