WWE Champion Drew McIntyre recently joined Sportskeeda’s Riju Dasgupta for an interview. He was questioned on what his take was on The Undertaker’s recent comments on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, where he had said that the current WWE product was ‘soft’. Drew McIntyre then responded to the legend’s remark.
Drew McIntyre disagrees with The Undertaker’s opinion
WWE veteran The Undertaker had recently made some remarks over WWE’s product which he is not a fan of. Now, Drew McIntyre answered him stating that he believes The Phenom was referring to the storylines and characters and not the quality of action displayed inside the squared circle.
The Scottish Pyschopath opened up on the current PG product and claimed that WWE can go far with the product.
He said: “I don’t agree whatsoever. Especially from an in-ring perspective. I’ve listened to part of it, I’ve got to listen to the whole thing it’s pretty new. But I think he may have been referring to like the kind of storylines and characters etc.
McIntyre believes that in Attitude Era the storylines and segments “were more sexual based” and “current product is PG”, there’s only so far that they can push it and they are willing to push it. He added: “But when it comes to the in-ring game, that’s just not true at all. It’s never been more physical.”
Drew McIntyre reflects on current WWE talents
McIntyre spoke highly of the current roster of WWE. He further made a bold claim stating it to be the best ‘in-ring talent roster’ of all time. He also said there is no comparison between the matches of the attitude era to the ones happening now.
On the matches of attitude era he said: “You look at back at the attitude era, you compare the matches, turn the volume off and watch the match quality and compare it to now, there’s no comparison.”
He further lauded the current athletes and claimed that they are the best in-ring talents. He said: “But now, there’s no roster like ours in the world. We’re physical, we’re hard-hitting, we have athletes that can do things that are just absolutely mind-blowing. So it certainly wasn’t the in-ring part he was talking about.”
Drew McIntyre is set to defend his WWE Championship against Goldberg at WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view on Sunday, January 31.
