Drew McIntyre, once hailed as “The Chosen One” by Vince McMahon, faced a tumultuous journey in the WWE. Despite early successes, including winning the Intercontinental Championship, McIntyre found himself relegated to the lower midcard and eventually released in 2014 as part of 3MB.

However, in a recent candid interview on The Pat McAfee Show, the Scottish Warrior spoke openly about his release, acknowledging that he deserved it. He shared an inspiring message about resilience in the face of setbacks, emphasizing the importance of perseverance and self-accountability. McIntyre’s journey of self-discovery culminated in a significant moment when The Rock personally announced his re-signing with WWE, symbolizing a full-circle moment in his career.

After being re-signed by Triple H in 2017, McIntyre underwent a transformation in NXT, emerging as a prominent star before transitioning to the main roster. His career trajectory took a pivotal turn when he won the 2020 Royal Rumble match and later defeated Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36 to clinch the WWE Championship. Fast forward to the present, The Rock’s personal announcement of McIntyre’s new contract marked a milestone in his career, underscored by a symbolic gift of a Scottish Claymore sword.

In the same interview, McIntyre revealed the match that ignited his passion for professional wrestling: Bret Hart versus Stone Cold Steve Austin at WrestleMania 13. Reflecting on the emotional and physical intensity of the match, McIntyre emphasized the profound impact of storytelling and audience connection in wrestling—a sentiment that has guided his own journey in the industry.

With a multi-year contract extension, McIntyre is poised to continue his tenure with WWE, joining a roster of superstars expected to renew their commitments. His resilience, determination, and unwavering passion for the sport serve as a testament to his enduring success in professional wrestling.
