Drew McIntyre returned to WWE a while ago to try to achieve the success he could not do a few years ago; And for the moment, it looks like his new path to success has started off well by winning an NXT Championship opportunity against Booby Rhode on TakeOver: Brooklyn III .
Now, McIntyre was the special guest on the X-Pac Podcast : Sean Waltman’s X-Pac 12360 , where among other things he talks about his role in NXT, Jinder Mahal’s victory , and his resemblance to John Cena .
Regarding its importance in NXT compared to the 16 Times World Champion John Cena :
On the victory for the WWE Championship of Jinder Mahal:
“I was there that night in Chicago. The NXT pre-show the night before, I stayed for the PPV the next day. I did not want to know the result, and I asked them both (Jinder Mahal and Randy Orton ) not to tell me, I went to see him from the crowd. And when he won, most of the NXT roster was headed for the bus, and I ran like the Ultimate Warrior, straight to the “gorilla.” I was there waiting for him and I broke a 3MB air guitar. “
About wanting to be part of NXT and not of RAW or SmackDown Live:
“Just the buzz in the locker room, just the way the shows are together. How much is your opinion It’s a team effort, and that’s how it feels like a great team effort. I did not want to be in RAW or Smackdown, I said it publicly before. I wanted to be at NXT, and Hunter brought me his baby, wanting to be part of it is a great honor. “
