Drew McIntyre recently spoke with the folks from talkSPORT for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During the discussion, “The Scottish Warrior” shared his thoughts on Jake Paul’s persona and becoming a prominent personality in the boxing world, a potential Tyson Fury match in the UK and more.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where he touches on this topic with his thoughts.
On Jake Paul’s persona: “Jake Paul is a foe of everybody I guess. [laughs] … Whenever I see him show up at these events and the whole crowd starts booing him, I’m like ‘wow, that’s pretty cool.’”
On Paul becoming a prominent personality in boxing: “It’s like Muhammad Ali back in the day. Everyone just remembers the good parts and how great he was, but if you remember in the beginning of Ali’s career, he was playing the heel and taking inspiration from WWE and playing that character, making people hate him so they would pay money to see him get beat. He [Jake] is basically the number one heel in the world so if he wants to swing by WWE and get Claymored in the face, that’s just fine with me!”
On a match with Tyson Fury in the UK: “I’m still angling for that significant UK pay-per-view and I won’t shut up until it happens. Tyson Fury and I have gone back and forth for a long time. If we needed something just a little outside of the box to get people’s attention, especially in the UK with someone of Fury’s stature fighting Drew McIntyre in the battle of Britain, that would really draw some eyes and that’s where I’d like to see it.”
