Drew McIntyre Thinks Fans Are Cheering Louder For Him Since Getting Drafted To Smackdown
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 favorite 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.
He won the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 36 after earning the spot in the main event of the show by winning the Royal Rumble match in the same year. He dropped the title at Hell in a Cell to Randy Orton only to win it back in only two weeks’ times again.
Drew McIntyre who is also a former two times WWE Tag Team Champion recently spoke to CBS Sports where he talked about receiving louder reactions from the fans since getting drafted to Friday Night Smackdown. He said;
“I’ve noticed and listened over the past six months or whatever, and the reaction is getting louder and louder. ‘Oh wow, this is cool.’ They are kind of sticking with me. A lot of guys flip-flop between good and bad these days. The fans have shorter attention spans or maybe what the person is doing isn’t interesting enough for them and they get over it pretty quick.
“I’ve had moments like that where I need to take a step in this direction or that direction, but I never once thought I need to turn bad. It’s cool to see the fans have stuck with me the whole time and, if anything, they’ve gotten louder and louder to the point where Reigns and I came face-to-face. It was a SmackDown taping. We had two tapings.
“They had seen me a few times prior. They had seen Reigns a few times prior. When I took out one Uso and the other Uso, on the turn — which I didn’t mean to do — I locked eyes with him and I could feel the rumbling. I could feel this is a pretty cool moment right now and holding off so long was worth it.”
