CM Punk, Drew McIntyre, and Seth Rollins shook up the atmosphere on the March 25th episode of WWE RAW with a promo segment that set the world on fire and now Drew McIntyre has confirmed the segment had an outline.

During this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, CM Punk and Drew McIntyre had a verbal spar on the microphone. During their battle, CM Punk asked McIntyre who named McIntyre ‘The Chosen One,’ which was a Vince McMahon reference.

During an appearance on Torg & Elliott, McIntyre delved into the dynamics of the segment involving himself, CM Punk, and Seth Rollins. He highlighted the palpable tension in the interview and emphasized the collaborative effort that goes into planning such segments, right up until showtime.

“This week, a lot of stuff, if you watch that interview with myself, CM Punk, and Seth Rollins, I’m sure you could feel the tension


Addressing the Chosen One line and the overall discomfort felt by fans, McIntyre explained that while there was an outline, the interaction was largely improvised. He stressed the authenticity of their verbal sparring, emphasizing that as professionals, they could engage in verbal jousting without relying on scripted lines for a live audience.

 “Basically, the whole thing, if it felt uncomfortable, it’s because there was an outline and it’s three guys going out there who may not like each other and may have personal feelings, but also are good at their job and we go out there and tear into each other verbally without it on a piece of paper because it’s stupid writing everything down to deliver it to a live audience.”

WWE’s backstage reaction to the Vince McMahon reference was also revealed. Nevertheless, fans loved the segment and that is all that matters in the end.
