You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On his prediction for McIntyre’s direction: “I think Drew McIntyre is leaving WWE. I can’t say everything, but I can say a lot. I don’t why you’d put Drew even in [the WWE Crown Jewel] match unless you know he’s not gonna re-sign. … You’re not gonna put the belt on him unless you know he’s gonna re-sign with you, because otherwise he can just have the belt, and that’s not good for any company.”
On McIntyre’s next best move if he leaves WWE: “AEW, in two seconds. Him vs. MJF? Holy shit.”
