WWE Champion Drew McIntyre recently spoke with Gary Cassidy of Sportskeeda and discussed several topics, ranging from unscripted promos to being himself on television. McIntyre also shared his thoughts on Drake Maverick’s recent storyline on NXT.
McIntyre: “It’s the real Drake Maverick. That’s the real Spud. You know, he’s very, very passionate about this industry, much like myself. He’s always wanted to do it. He’s gave his entire life to it. You know, again, in the situation that he was in he just put his heart on his sleeve and told the world I’m still gonna keep doing this and he would, he’d be successful wherever he went. But I think he’s so capable of multiple different roles, not just in the ring. He’s so talented when it comes to, you know, his mind. He can be writing the show, he can be helping with characters, he can be on the show, he can be a manager, he’s so multi-talented, and I do think, you know, going off this storyline, which he created himself, you know, he will be around and he’s gonna have a long future here, not just on-camera but off-camera too.”
McIntyre also offered a brief message on cyberbullying:
McIntyre: “There are so many scenarios and situations around the world that are incredibly upsetting. I don’t think that Drew McIntyre is the person who should be speaking on it. I think you should just ask yourself, you know, ‘Would I like it if somebody said that to me?’ You know, It’s as simple as that. It takes a lot of effort to not be nice and it doesn’t take any effort to be nice. Just be nice.”
