Drew McIntyre reveals who convinced him to return to WWE

Drew McIntyre had a chance to make it big into WWE during his first run with the company, however his Chosen One gimmick didn’t work as planned and he ended up leaving the company on a low note.

Though the former Champion went on to reinvent himself in the indies and so far it appears that he will make it big into the company this time and become a world champion.

McIntyre recently had an interview with The Orlando Sentinel where he talked about his departure and return to the promotion and revealed that it was Triple H who convinced him to comeback:

“Triple H convinced me it was time to come home. I’m proud of the different man I became during my time away. I came back as the grown-up version of myself.”

Apart from this, Drew McIntyre also talked about being exited to be a part of the Raw roster and revealed his ambition to become the first British heavyweight champion of the company.

    I have heard nothing about Strowman being champ. I won’t dismiss it outright, but I have heard nothing on that. Strowman does not seem like he would fit on what Fox wants Smackdown to be and that’s more sports oriented. I have heard Rollins moving to Smackdown, I have heard Ronda moving to Smackdown, but with Sullivan going to Smackdown, I do not see them moving Braun there as well. This year’s roster shakeup is going to be on the scale of, what was it, 08? The year they moved Triple H to Smackdown. Sasha and Bayley may also be Smackdown bound to set up the Horsewomen vs Horsewomen match. What I have heard about Taker is a possible Rumble win for him and go on to get his win back from Brock five years later and retire as Universal Champ. As for Cena, I heard he’s taking a walk…

    Lot of things in the WWE has change but one thing I known since Smackdown was moving to Fox. Braun Strowman will be WWE champion when that happens. I think for Braun Strowman he might end up being the guy who retires the Undertaker but then again I believe the Undertaker is the only reason John Cena is back we will see.

    Here is what might happen because I think it really the best choice to face Lesnar for the Unverlasial Champion at WM 35.

    You might see AJ Styles lose the WWE title match an come back to win the Royal Rumble. He goes on to face Brock Lesnar at WM 35. I think AJ Styles vs Brock Lesnar for the Unverlasial Championship would be money.

    I’m saying that was the plan during the summer. That is not the plan now and has not been for a couple of months. Some of the wrestlers know part of the plans, some don’t. Just because the creative team doesn’t tell the wrestlers doesn’t mean they don’t leak it to people outside the company. I am not guessing. I am telling you what the plan is. You don’t know who I know or where I get my information. Like I said, if you choose not to believe me, that’s your business, but you’re not going to sit there and tell me who I heard what from when you have ZERO idea.

    As for Stowman, the plan as of now is for him to take on Bray Wyatt. Obviously, things can change, but that was the plan for last year’s Mania at one point and is in the early drafts of this year’s WM.

    You see us having a Ronda vs Natayla at WM 35 I never did. You just prove my point you don’t know anything that going to happen in the WWE you just guessing like the rest of us. The wrestlers themselves don’t know what is happening in WWE right now.

    I think it maybe Daniel Bryan vs Braun Strowman at Wrestlemania for the WWE Champion if Strowman doesn’t beat Brock Lesnar. Remember there was another Royal Rumble and I believe they been wanting to move Braun Strowman to Smackdown since the Fox Deal.

    That’s incredibly rude. Just because you haven’t heard anything leaked doesn’t mean that others, like myself, don’t have any inside information. After Rumble I will post everything I know. By the way, as of about six months ago, the plan was to do Ronda vs Natayla at Mania. If you noticed, Natayla was always coming out to save Ronda, meanwhile Ronda was rarely ever coming out to help Natayla. Then WWE realized that no matter what you do, no one will ever give two craps about Natayla, Becky got hot, and the rest is history.

    Rey Mysterio hasn’t mattered since WCW. WCW Rey vs Bryan would be great, but WWE, over 40, ten knee surgeries later Rey vs Bryan would not.

    What? I think Daniel Bryan vs Rey Mysterio could be an instant classic. Both are still pretty fresh out of the gate (returning within the last year) and have momentum. I agree, AJ, Hardy and Orton would be stale choices.

    As far as pushing McIntyre to the top? I say not yet… he will hang around the IC title picture until eventually capturing that gold first. I don’t see him passing Rollins or Ambrose. I see a fatal 4-Way at Mania (Ambrose/Rollins/Ziggler/McIntyre), or an IC ladder match with Drew McIntyre coming out on top.

    The big question: who will face the Universal Champion, whoever that may be? Hard to pick a “money” opponent for either Lesnar or Strowman?

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I saying you are full of it. WWE has not let anything out.

  • Spoiler Alert

    What I am telling you is coming from a source inside WWE. If you don’t believe, that’s fine, I can’t force you to. Look at the landscape of Smackdown. Who is a top face that you would put against Daniel Bryan? AJ? Already been done. Jeff Hardy? Please. Rey? Not a chance. I’m not saying I like it, I’m not saying it’s a good idea, but that’s the match as of right now. Drew is taking on Rollins in the first draft of the WM card.

    Dont listen to the haters. Your far better th n Cena, any day of the week and what HHH could never become.

  • wwemrpeeps85

    Yay another reason to add to my many reasons why I hate triple hhh

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I don’t think there is really an clear winner on who going to win the Royal Rumble. Too soon for Sullivan anyway.

  • Spoiler Alert

    As of right now, the plan is for Sullivan to win and go on to challenge Bryan.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I think HHH was looking in the mirror when he saw this new Drew McIntyre. I wouldn’t be surprise if he wins the Royal Rumble right now.
