Drew McIntyre – ‘I Had CM Punk’s Number The First Time We Were In The Ring Together’



In a recent interview with The Daily Mail, Drew McIntyre provided insight into the dynamics of engaging in verbal exchanges with CM Punk, as well as the latter’s remarks regarding being referred to as “The Chosen One” by Vince McMahon on the March 25th episode of WWE RAW.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On CM Punk’s comments during the promo segment in March: “I have to thank him [Punk] for that I guess. One thing I can thank him for. If he’s got that microphone you know he’s bringing his A-game and perhaps the first time we were in the ring together he was still finding his feet being back in WWE. I think he realized – I know he realized, I could see it in his eyes – this isn’t the same Drew and I had his number the first time we were in the ring together, and I stomped his stupid little arm.”

On having the opportunity to go back-and-forth with Punk: “The second time, I could see it in his eyes, ‘Right, I’m back, I’ve got all my guns loaded,’ and this is the CM Punk of old. And I knew I could either step up to his level or I can drown and I don’t belong at his level. So it was cool to have that opportunity to go back and forth and have people go, ‘Oh my god, this is insane.’ When you thought it couldn’t get anymore insane it kept escalating and escalating. You have to be quick on your feet and you have to know exactly who you are in this industry if you’re going to compete at the top level.”

On his gratitude for CM Punk: “So I can say thank you to him for showing in that segment everybody that said well, Drew just went to-to-toe with Punk in his prime, on fire. And Seth also added to that segment in what has become something of a legendary segment. It’s all people talk to me about recently.”

McIntyre recently withdrew from the 2024 King of the Ring tournament due to an elbow injury and was subsequently replaced by Jey Uso.

During the latest episode of RAW, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Damian Priest announced that McIntyre would be granted a title shot upon his return to the ring.
