Drew McIntyre Interview: His Push, Being Vince’s “Chosen One”

Posted by Marc Middleton in WWE News

– WWE star was recently interviewed by Slam Wrestling and spoke about the strong push he’s gotten so far and what it’s like being ’s “chosen one.”

McIntyre says despite the fact that he’s still one of the newer faces in WWE, he’s already got all the tools to be a top star and is rising to the top for a reason.

“There’s a lot of hype for a good reason,” McIntyre said. “I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me, but I believe in my head, but I feel that… when I was home in Scotland, I was watching some of the guys in TV talking about how they don’t get an opportunity, blah blah blah, Drew McInytre was the Chosen One, and he gets these opportunities. Then I think about it from my point of view. Wait a minute, and I honestly believe this, if an actor in Hollywood has been an actor for 20 years, and some new kid comes along, perfect for the role — he’s good-looking, he’s right, he’s good-looking, foreign, he’s got a sweet accent — this is the guy they’re going to want; we don’t know if he’s got the tools yet, but they’ll give him the opportunity to see how he does, and if he does well, fantastic. If he doesn’t, ugh.”

McIntyre says there’s pressure that comes from being Vince McMahon’s hand-picked “next big star,” but it’s nothing he can’t handle.

“I love pressure,” said McIntyre. “I work best under pressure. … It was pretty much what I’d been working for, for my entire life. This is all I’ve wanted, I worked hard at it since I was a kid. I worked hard in the gym. I’ve worked very hard to get that thumbs up from the boss himself. It was just justification in my head that all this has paid off. I get the opportunity to do what I always believed I was destined to do. … It just feels like it’s in my blood.”
