Drew McIntyre has been a part of the wrestling world for almost two decades and in this time, he has wrestled many extreme matches and taken many dangerous bumps.
However, when it comes to the worst bump of his entire career, the WWE Champion thinks that a very recent bump was worse than all the others he has taken in the past.
The former NXT Champion was asked this question during his recent interview with Fox Sport’s Ryan Satin, and McIntyre picked his big Hell In a Cell bump in his match against Randy Orton from this past October:
“[It was] the worst bump by far. Horrible,” McIntyre said. “But again, I just wanted to do it for the sake of history. I wanted to do it for the fans. Thinking of [Mick] Foley, I was like, ‘Think of the virtual pop!’ When I was up there, it’s legitimately ten feet the plate I was standing on, but with my boots on I’m 6’7. So it was 17 feet basically. I was looking down before I fell off. When I hit that table, I was like, ‘Ok table, break my fall.’ As soon as I landed I bit through my tongue. Blood coming out of my mouth. Whiplash. Sucked.”
For those of you who missed it, Randy Orton forced Drew McIntyre to get onto the roof of the Hell In A Cell structure and then the Viper had his opponent chase him down the opposite site. However, while the pair was still half up the wall, the former world champion caused Drew McIntyre to fall onto the commentary desk.
