Freddie Prinze Jr. Reveals What Wrecked Drew McIntyre’s Confidence Early On In WWE



During the latest edition of his “Wrestling With Freddie” podcast, former WWE creative team writer Freddie Prinze Jr. recalled the time when Drew McIntyre first got signed to WWE, what he would tell McIntyre to try and build back his confidence, and more.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On the note that Drew McIntyre kept getting before going out on camera: “Vince comes out and deems him the golden one, the next guy. And then every single week at TV, he would get the same note right before he would have to go on camera, ‘Try not to have a Scottish accent.’ Which is the most horrible note you could ever give a human being in their life, especially right before they’re going on live or taped television or backstage segment, and it was the only thing in his head.”

On what he would tell McIntyre to try and build back his confidence: “I would tell him two words after that all the time, ‘Supreme confidence, Drew, supreme confidence, common man, don’t listen to that nonsense, supreme confidence.’ ‘Oh no, my accent.’ I remember I said, ‘You don’t think Braveheart made a bazillion dollars? Nobody cares!’ And he’s like, ‘Well, my boss cares.’ And that’s a tough argument to make, so it was real tough on this kid. He eventually got let go and he had to kind of discover himself through other promotions like TNA, I think he went to Japan for a little bit, and then eventually he becomes this huge star in these companies.”
