Drew McIntyre has given his thoughts on his WWE behavior and whether it truly makes him a bad guy.
When Jey Uso & Cody Rhodes challenged Damian Priest & Finn Balor for the WWE Tag Team Titles on the November 13th edition of WWE Raw, Drew McIntyre decided to make his presence felt in a big way. While Jey was on the floor, Drew appeared and hit his rival with a Claymore Kick. Drew tossed Jey back into the ring, Balor got the pinfall and the champions retained their titles.
On the November 20th episode of WWE Raw, Drew McIntyre explained his actions by saying his real fans would understand why he did what he did. Drew also said he didn’t join The Judgment Day, but he worked with them so he could get his hands on Jey Uso in the WarGames match inside of the double cage.
“‘The best heel turns are the justified ones.’ Who’s a heel? Who’s a bad guy? Are we not watching the show and not keeping up with things? Do I have to spell things out even more simply? If you’re a fan of mine, like I said on Raw, you get it. You understand. If you don’t, and if you’ve turned your back on me, if you feel a certain way about me, you weren’t a fan in the first place, or you just haven’t been watching closely or half-closely because it feels pretty obvious to me, or have a short-term memory or it’s fun to say ‘Yeet’ and do this [mocks Jey Uso’s taunt], which it is, but it doesn’t change the facts.”
“That’s all I do is tell the truth. I’m a real person, wrapped into a real situation with someone who showed up in my backyard, who was part of trauma from the worst part of my career, which led to the worst moment of my career. So I’m dealing with it now, doing what a lot of people wish they could do and I can do, being a WWE superstar, kick someone’s arse who wronged.”
“Point out the truth, be met with, not a rebuttal but a Yeet Yeet YeetDown, which is fun to say, but it’s not exactly replying to the facts that were presented. Nonetheless, don’t care. Got him in a cage, still the same guy. My fans get it. Whatever. I’m going to keep being me, keep kicking arse and eventually get back to that world title with people in the crowd. Simple.”
