Drew McIntyre was recently interviewed by “DC 101”. During the interview, he discussed his struggle to decide whether or not to return to the WWE and his thoughts on his upcoming match against Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 35. Here are the highlights:
On His Decision To Return:
It was a tough decision to decide to come back until I spoke to Triple H on the phone. He’d been watching what I was doing, he was very proud and made it clear that it was time to come home. We both decided NXT was the place to start because of the hardcore fanbase that had been following my career outside of the company. That was the best way to reintroduce myself. I got to be a part of NXT and a leader there which I enjoyed more than anything.
On Winning The NXT Title:
Entrance-wise I’ve been a little nervous. We had the fire dept band and they were playing the bagpipes and had the drums there for my entrance. I was little bit nervous and I didn’t want to mess it up. I was walking out to the ring, and we’re doing it live, I saw the pipers and I was just amped out of my mind. Poor Bobby Roode got chopped to death.
On His Match Against Reigns At Wrestlemania 35:
I got the butterflies, I’ve got the nerves. The day that stops is the day I retire. I feel beyond ready and with someone like Roman, who like you say is used to that big stage, a phenomenal performer and so physical like myself. I know we’re bringing something that no one else will be able to compete with because we’re two big physical guys.
It’s going to be a war. It’s going to be great.
