Drew McIntyre is certainly one of the top Superstars in WWE, and he clearly loves his profession. He won the WWE Champion twice and continues to be a beloved star. That being said, he also knows how to call an audible when needed.

The Scottish Warrior has been engaged in a feud with Karrion Kross ever since the latter returned to WWE last month. On last week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown, McIntyre was confronted by Kross and Scarlett, and that resulted in quite a melee.

It also included a botched fire paper spot. While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that the segment was “largely impromptu,” and he also revealed their original plans.

It was largely impromptu, but not exactly. There was concern because they used like a fire gun. It was almost like if it was known since they were going live, that they would adjust. So if you noticed Drew McIntyre paused for a second, and then he attacked Kross. They pretty much called, I guess there was mutual understanding as Scarlett hit a low blow. It worked out somehow, but it was absolutely not the plan.


The segment went off as it did on television. Some fans might not have noticed, but those who knew the actual plan certainly saw that they changed up the segment.
