WWE star Drew McIntyre recently joined Sam Roberts on Notsam Wrestling podcast. He went on to speak about how the WWE Universe backed him for winning the WWE Champioship.
Drew McIntyre reveals why WWE Universe supported him
Drew McIntyre is having a great run in WWE. He has been on top of his career since eliminating Brock Lesnar in the Royal Rumble match last year. He further achieved his dreams at WrestleMania 36 when he went on to become the WWE Champion by defeating The Beast.
He has come to the stature of top stars of WWE like John Cena and Roman Reigns. He got great reaction from the crowd when he won the title and WWE Universe has cheered him for the win.
During the podcast Roberts asked what made McIntyre different from Roman Reigns and John Cena, who had struggled to get a positive feedback from the crowd. McIntyre believes it was all because of his journey from getting released in 2017 and bouncing back stronger to claim the WWE title.
It was a rough road through which The Scottish Warrior had gone. There has been several ups and downs that he faced despite of having a great physique and in-ring prowess.
But, he was able to achieve his goals as he never gave up on his dreams and the crowd backed him up as they could connect to the former WWE Champion.
He said: “When it comes to the relatability thing, I think the key for me is I went through a bunch of hell. The fans knew I had been through some crap , had to overcome some crap, even as a 6’5, 270 lbs guy. They know this guy never gave up on his dreams, he’s fighting for his dreams. They could relate to that.”
In the Royal Rumble match, McIntyre had eliminated Lesnar and it was huge, given the circumstances of the match. The Beast Incarnate had been dominating since the beginning but McIntyre changed the whole scenario of the match as he eliminated Lesnar.
During the podcast Drew McIntyre also admitted that as he was the one who eliminated Lesnar, WWE Universe gave up him a positive reaction and also when Edge made his much awaited return, the crowd went berzerk.
McIntyre is once again eyeing to reclaim the title as he would face WWE Champion Bobby Lashley and Braun Strowman at WrestleMania Backlash on May 16.
