Drew McIntyre On Being “The Chosen One” & More


Drew McIntyre recently participated in a media call leading up to the Royal Rumble. During the media call, he discussed being donned “The Chosen One” by Vince McMahon during his first stint with the company as well as his plan for the Royal Rumble match. Here are the highlights:

On Whether He Thinks He Has Lived Up To Vince Calling Him “The Chosen One”:

I wouldn’t be doing this if I didn’t believe that. Vince McMahon got his crystal ball and saw into the future. And thankfully, eventually, I started putting the pieces together. I started realizing my potential. You got to prove Vince McMahon right. It’s crazy – some of the ideas he says that might sound crazy generally become true. It gives you a good feeling, especially at the moment I’m in right now.

On His Royal Rumble Strategy:

To win the Royal Rumble you don’t want to go over the top rope, obviously. But gameplay wise, hopefully, you draw a later number. You try and stay as small as you can, which is difficult for someone like myself because with that high center of gravity, it’s not ideal, because someone can knock you right over the top rope if you get too close to them. So, for myself, it’s about having that game plan that I do have, which involves some things that I maybe have not necessarily shown on TV. But I’m not going to give away any of my gameplans, because I do have one in mind.

The biggest threats are the ones with the low center of gravity and the power. Big E, for example, and the larger than life individuals. I know Braun Strowman’s not technically in there but I saw what he had to say last week, so I would not be surprised if Braun Strowman was in there, like some surprises in the past. If we end up in there together, it’s going to be an absolute war!
