Drew McIntyre has given a somewhat predictable answer when he was recently asked who might induct him into the WWE Hall of Fame in the future.
It’s been an interesting journey for McIntyre in WWE starting when he earned a contract in his early 20s, then was christened the “Chosen One” and called a future World Champion by former WWE Chairman Vince McMahon. It was an immense amount of pressure to put on a young wrestler. That first run ended in a release after a comedic run in 3MB rather than becoming a main event star.
When the Scottish Warrior returned to WWE in 2017 he had improved a lot working for other companies like Impact Wrestling and independent promotions all around the world. After a successful run as the NXT Champion, he continued his momentum on the main roster. McIntyre was turned babyface in early 2020, won the Royal Rumble and beat Brock Lesnar to become the WWE Champion at WrestleMania 36.
The unfortunate thing about McIntyre’s two WWE Title runs is that there were no fans present when he beat Lesnar or when he won the WWE Title back from Randy Orton later that year. That’s because it was the Thunderdome Era due to the COVID-19 pandemic. McIntyre has talked about how much he desires to be WWE or Universal Champion again some day so he can share that moment with the fans.
During a recent appearance on the Hollywood Raw podcast, Drew was asked about his future. It’s a question often asked of people in wrestling – who would you want to induct you into the WWE Hall of Fame when it’s your turn? Drew picked a name that most fans would likely guess:
“Oh god, it’s gonna end up being Sheamus, isn’t it? He’s been there since before we both got signed, through the good times and the bad times.”
“I’m the Best Man at his wedding coming up, he was the Best Man at my wedding. We give each other hell. We fight more than me and my actual brother fight, and people get to see it on TV.”
“God, do I want him to do it? After all the things he knows?”
Both wrestlers signed with WWE at the same time and have had numerous great matches together, so it’s only fitting that they would be together in the WWE Hall of Fame day many years down the road.
