Drew McIntyre Recalls Talk With The Rock That Led To Incredible Gift

Drew McIntyre

Drew McIntyre has revealed how a conversation with The Rock helped him and also led to a spectacular gift.

When the news was announced that Drew McIntyre had signed a new WWE contract in April 2024, it was reported in a unique way because it was on The Rock’s Instagram account.

There was a video featuring McIntyre along with his wife at dinner with WWE President Nick Khan. At the dinner, McIntyre was presented with a sword. As it turns out, McIntyre had a conversation with The Rock about a sword, and in the video, McIntyre said that Rock was a man of his word.

In an interview with Alex McCarthy of Daily Mail, McIntyre spoke about private conversations he had with The Rock when the People’s Champion was a part of WrestleMania 40.

“It was a great conversation with Rock. He’s been there, he’s been a great mentor and such high level advice you can’t get from many people. And on the contract stuff, obviously Nick [Khan] and Paul [Levenque] were the main people there and everyone walked away happy. I won’t be going anywhere for a few years. Or even longer, let’s just see how my body feels!”

The Rock Is A Man Of His Word According To Drew McIntyre

As McIntyre continued, he spoke about how a locker room conversation with The Rock led to McIntyre being gifted a sword because Rock said he would make it happen.

“It was not expected. If you see the video I say ‘you’re a man of your word, he remembered’ – it was based on a conversation we had at WrestleMania, we had a really nice chat.”

“In the locker room I remember everyone’s head turning like ‘why is The Rock in our locker room?!’ [laughs]. We had a great chat. He’s always there for the advice.”

“I mentioned redecorating my office. I don’t bring the sword to the ring anymore. If it’s a special occasion, yes, but I did say I would like one of those for my office wall. He was like ‘I’ll make that happen.’ Just a passing comment, ‘I’ll make that happen’.

‘I never thought anything of it, I thought clearly he won’t remember that, he’s way too busy. Sure enough, I had a business meeting with Nick and the sword turned up with a very nice note – I’ll never reveal what it said – but yeah, he is a man of his word.”

Up next for Drew McIntyre is a World Heavyweight Title match at WWE’s Clash at the Castle PLE in his home country of Scotland. McIntyre will challenge Damian Priest for the World Heavyweight Title in Glasgow in what will likely be the main event of the show.
