On the Latest Edition of the E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness, NXT champion Drew McIntyre was a guest.McIntyre talked about the unwilling angle between 2014 WWE departure and The Undertaker who grew up in front of WWE Universe.
At the departure of McIntyre ‘s WWE, McIntyre said it was originally thought that it was out of the WWE’ s bubble, but he grew professionally and privately during his own time. In addition, “chosen people” asserts that it is time for him to come back to WWE at the right time.
“I’ve been fantastic. I don’t even know where to begin. It [has] been a few years. I think I’ve grown up a little bit and I’ve been away from the WWE for about three years and I kind of did my own thing. And thanks to everything that I’ve learned from being on the road with guys like yourselves and the roster that we had at the time and I’ve been able to take those lessons and apply them all across the world and build my name. It was the right time to come back and I’m back.”
On McIntyre began with WWE a very young.Edge said McIntyre began looking for something like Hunter Hearst Helmsley and evolved to Braveheart.
“I had a match with Taker, but I was supposed to do something bigger with Taker. But I looked at myself and how I looked back then. And I was like, ‘man, I would not believe that guy.’ And then, I look at myself now and I’m like, ‘okay, I get it now’ when people like Hunter and stuff at the time, I see what they were saying, so I believe this guy that I am currently. And just mentally and everything, all around, I’m ready for that responsibility. And like I said, it takes a lot to be that guy just like you see on TV.”
“I was trying too hard. Like, I wasn’t able to relax back then. That’s another thing and guys, you know, once you’re able to relax, that’s when things start clicking and people can feel that as well. I just wasn’t relaxed at all for my whole first run. I was on-edge that whole time, trying too hard.”
According to Christians, he used to destroy McIntyre and the house with a WWI superstar, he tells Triple H how good McIntyre is. “Haitch” agreed, but he suggested that McIntyre must learn how to play a good Matches every night.
“I think it was somewhere in Illinois, [McIntyre] and I, I got to that arena and I was wrestling [McIntyre] on Superstars and [McIntyre] hadn’t been doing a lot at this point,” Christian said. “[McIntyre was] kind of in flux in terms of what you were doing. And so I get there and I think we ended up having 15 or 16 minutes [for the match] and that’s some good time for TV. And like I said, it was on Superstars. And I remember, I wasn’t the happiest guy to be on Superstars, so I was like, ‘you know what? We’re going to tear the house down and make it really hard for anybody to follow this match.’ And I remember we went out there and we tore the house down. We had an amazing match and I came back and Hunter was back there. And I said, ‘hey, he is good.’ And he goes, ‘no, he is good, but he needs to learn how to do that every night.”
