Drew McIntyre On Coming Up With The Name Of His Sword
After making the main roster debut in 2009 he won the WWE Intercontinental Championship very early. He started having an undefeated run until it was finally beaten by the Big Red Machine Kane. He was portrayed as The Chosen One by Vince McMahon. He was actually very much a favourite of Vince, he really believed in McIntyre.
But ultimately it was understood that he was not ready for the push he was receiving. As a result he was promoted to a jobber role. And in 2014 he was released by WWE. In 2017 he returned to WWE again after spending three years on the independent circuit and some other promotions as well. Since then he is going really strong.
Drew McIntyre who is a former two times WWE Champion recently spoke to Cultoholic where he talked about coming up with the name of his sword with Vince McMahon. He said;
“Angela, the name of the sword, it’s named after my late mother which is really cool. I remember I had a conversation with Vince [McMahon]. Again, it obviously goes back to Vince and we’re talking about possibly giving the sword a name and kind of giving it more meaning and I was thinking of things like The Widowmaker, Bloody Bonnie or something. So he was thinking, ‘You know how a lot of people give like a female name?’
“Or whatever and he asked me, ‘What’s your mother’s name?’ And I said ‘Angela’ and then we kind of talked about my mom and her story and how much she had to overcome in her life and she’s no longer with us and he said, ‘That’s the name right there’ and I thought it was like a cool tribute to my mom and also really cool for my family to hear her name every week on TV.
“It’s like if you annoy Drew enough, he’s gonna have to attack you with Angela. Angela’s coming for you which is pretty cool.”
