Since Drew McIntyre returned to the WWE with the NXT brand he has been on a tear and a major part of NXT storylines.
Recently, McIntyre was a guest on Sean “X-Pac” Waltman’s podcast, X-Pac 12360 and talked about his current run, Jinder Mahal, ‘NXT Takeover:Brooklyn II and more.
“NXT TakeOver, is only four times a year, they’re always a spectacle, everyone busts their ass” McIntyre said (h/t Wrestling Inc.). And we’ve got like a silent competition, I’ll say it. SummerSlam is the next day. …We wanna top SummerSlam. We’re gonna top SummerSlam.”
McInyre also discussed the title win for his former 3MB teammate Jinder Mahal.
“I was there that night in Chicago. The pre-show for NXT the night before, I stayed for the PPV the next day” McIntyre said.
“I didn’t want to know the results, and I told both of them [Jinder Mahal] and Randy [Orton] don’t tell me, I’ll watch from the crowd. And when he won, most of the NXT roster were heading to the bus, and I sprinted off like the Ultimate Warrior, straight to ‘gorilla.’ I was right there waiting for him and I busting a 3MB air guitar.”
McIntyre has made an impact since his return and claims to be the NXT’s version of John Cena.
“Just think of me as your John Cena of NXT” McIntyre proclaimed.
“If there is something going on and someone doesn’t want to do it, then I’m your guy. I’m doing this, I’m happy. It’s nothing fake, I generally do enjoy this.”
