In other news regarding Drew McIntyre, the former WWE Champion discussed the new ban that WWE has enforced regarding leg slapping and how that will affect his moveset, such as his finishing move – the Claymore. McIntyre made the following remarks in conversation with Alfred Konuwa of Forbes. Credit to Bleacher Report for the below transcription.
“For the general fans, if you’re good enough [at leg slapping] that you can do it—like a Shawn Michaels—then you’re not gonna catch it. It’s become so blatant at times that I think you’ve got to pick and choose your moments.
“But when it comes to the Claymore—let me explain how the Claymore works—people said to me, ‘You’re slapping your leg.’ That’s not the case with the Claymore. When I raise my leg and kick forward, you’ve got a 6’6″, 270-pound man jumping and kicking you. I’ve got a very strong shoulder, so when I’m throwing that kick and I also put some shoulder behind it, I’m just adding force. So, you see, it’s not really a leg slap for me; it’s just extra force.” McIntyre also used a banned move on RAW.
