WWE legend and hall of famer Mark Henry appeared on “Busted Open Radio” recently. During the interview, he spoke incredibly highly of Drew McIntyre. He went as far as to say that he could replace John Cena and Roman Reigns and become “the man” in the WWE. Here are the highlights:
Mark Henry On McIntyre Excelling Since His Return:
Ever since Drew came back and we stuck him with the grown ass man Drew McIntyre moniker, he has been stellar. His promos are priceless and he is unrivaled. Drew is grabbing the business and he’s doing things that a lot of the young people are not doing and that’s why he’s in this conversation that we’re talking about, as where he’s gonna be in the next year or two. I think that he will be champion. I think before next year is over, Drew McIntyre will be world champion.
Henry On Whether He Thinks McIntyre Can Be “The Man”:
I think he deserves it and maybe he needed that Three Man Band gimmick. Maybe he needed to get a little taste of the bottom before he could rise to the top. When he first came on the scene in the WWE, he was Vince McMahon’s hand-picked chosen one. That was his gimmick on SmackDown. He had that great feud with Matt Hardy and he was The Chosen One and it just didn’t seem to get over. Now, whether it was the fault of creative or maybe a little bit of fault on Drew, he wasn’t able to really take that next step, so I think leaving and coming back is where you’re really starting to see Drew McIntyre shine. I do think that, not only can Drew McIntyre be a champion, I think Drew McIntyre can be face of the company. If I was the guy in charge, I would look no further than the Drew McIntyre I saw in the ring last night in the main event on RAW. I think Drew McIntyre could take the place of Roman Reigns. I think Drew McIntyre could be that John Cena. I think Drew McIntyre could be the face of the franchise. I think Drew McIntyre could be the face on the program, the face on the poster, and the face that sells tickets and pay-per-views, and the [WWE] Network. I think Drew McIntyre could be the next face of the WWE.
