Mick Foley – ‘I Told Triple H To Keep An Eye On Drew McIntyre After His WWE Release’


Following his WWE release in 2014, Drew McIntyre returned to the indies.

On a recent edition of his “Foley Is Pod” show, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley recalled the time he told Triple H to make sure to keep an eye on the Scottish Warrior during his time away from WWE. He said,

“Drew will admit that there are times to go out there [on the indies] and be that guy from WWE. But when it really counted, like with Insane Championship Wrestling — people need to know, just from the onset, I rarely text the powers that be and in this case, I texted Hunter after Drew sent me something.”

He continued, “I wasn’t close friends with Drew by any means, but I liked him, and he sent me something. He said, ‘Hey, I know you’re busy, but I’m working on something different. I did something for her ICW in Glasgow. Can you take a look?’ The first thing I did, and he’d only been gone like a month, I texted Triple H and said, ‘I know you just released him, but you need to keep your eye on Drew McIntyre. He’s like an entirely different person.’ Sometimes you just need to go there. You may find out by betting on yourself that you’re only as good as WWE told you you were, but man, the two dirtiest words in the English language, ‘What if?’”
