Drew McIntyre Reveals What Changed In Him Between His WWE Runs, More


During a recent media conference call, WWE RAW Superstar Drew McIntyre commented on his time away from WWE and what changed when he was gone, returning to the company and going to NXT, and more. You can check out some highlights from the conference call below:

On needing his time away from WWE: “It would have been very hard to grow if I hadn’t stepped outside the WWE bubble and gain a clear perspective on everything. I was already comfortable talking but that wasn’t my strong suit. I think I would have done okay but I don’t think I would be where I’m at. I certainly wouldn’t be as comfortable as I am now to get more opportunities.”

On starting in NXT upon his return: “I had a lot of conversations with Triple H and I made it clear if I come back, I would like to go to NXT…You need those experienced leaders because that makes a difference in the product. NXT had lost a couple of people and I felt I could really make a difference going in there.”

On what changed between his first and second WWE runs: “What’s changed from my first stint is that I don’t take anything for granted. I’m a lot more mature and I don’t have negativity in my life. Partying isn’t as important to me anymore like it was when I was younger. I focus very much on the job and my goals and dreams…They say opportunity is everything you’ve got. I didn’t realize that the first time around because I had lost perspective.”
