Drew McIntyre worked hard to establish himself as one of the top stars in WWE. He is a former 2-time WWE Champion and is truly an inspiration to many pro wrestlers. He also reacted to Steve Austin calling him a future WWE Hall of Famer.

A couple of months ago, WWE Hall Of Famer ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin stated that he believes Drew McIntyre is future WWE Hall Of Famer. This got quite a lot of reactions as well.

While speaking to Riju Dasgupta, Drew McIntyre reacted to what Steve Austin said. McIntyre stated that he feels it is simply surreal that Steve Austin considers him a future WWE Hall Of Famer.

“Well first of all it’s surreal to see somebody like ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin to say such complimentary about myself and Sheamus about seeing us as future Hall of Fame superstars. If you get to know ‘Stone Cold’ a little bit you know he doesn’t lie, he tells the truth from his perspective and that means the world because I know he meant it. It was also amazing to see him recently, he came to Reno, Nevada live event and close to where he lives.” 


He watched the whole show and that was the coolest thing. You know when we get some of our older Superstars to come back, they’ll say hi and they’ll stick around for a bit and check it out. Steve is such a passionate wrestling fan. He sat down right at the monitor like he would have back in the day. He watched every single match, he gave advice to every that wanted advice and he stuck around right to the main event, which was myself and Sheamus in a Street Fight afterward he tried to pick his brain and he just told us, ‘You all been doing it long enough, you’ve got this thing.” And once again if he felt something he would have told us and that really met the world, but also just see his passion for this industry I admire that so much.”

The Scottish Warrior faced off against Roman Reigns at WWE Clash At The Castle for the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship, but was unable to win it. We’ll have to see what’s next in store for him. If anything, McIntyre has The Texas Rattlesnake’s attention, just like the rest of the world.
