Drew McIntyre is getting set to challenge Seth Rollins on Saturday, November 4th at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia for his coveted WWE World Heavyweight Championship. He called us today to chat about that match and WWE Royal Rumble tickets going on sale. Those tickets are on sale now by the way at RoyalRumble.com. The Royal Rumble takes place on Saturday, January 27, 2024 in Tampa, Florida. Drew says of the event, “it’s the Royal Rumble, it’s Wrestlemanis season, it’s WWE. If you’re a lapsed fan get back into it. It’s 30 men, 30 women, everybody trying to chuck each other over the top rope for the opportunity to main event Wrestlemanis so bloody check it out!”
Drew McIntyre famously won his first world championship during the pandemic in a match against Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 36 in front of zero live fans so he’s still looking for his big moment in front of fans and he’s hoping that happens at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.
Drew was a great guy to talk to. He answered all sorts of random questions for us while wolfing down a “salmon cream cheese bagel delight” that he had just been handed by his mother-in-law pre-interview. We asked him, among other things, which wrestling personalities make him laugh the most, are last in the gym, are most apt to crush fast food on the road, and (most interesting perhaps) who he sees as the next big thing in professional wrestling, a term that has been thrown around a ton since Brock Lesnar was given the moniker by Paul Heyman back in 2002 on an episode of Monday Night RAW.
We thank Drew McIntyre for his time and for being so kind to us throughout the interview. At 6 foot 5 and 280 pounds, we’re really glad he seemed to like us. Phew. Thanks Drew!
