Drew McIntyre shared a story about how Vince McMahon’s fast thinking aided his presentation. McIntyre is widely regarded as the best babyface on the WWE SmackDown brand. Nevertheless, there came a time when a simple defect in a preplanned entrance could have harmed his reputation. McIntyre remembered his initial plan causing more problems than it was worth.
McIntyre explained, The plan was for me to walk to the ring with a sword on my back, then get in the ring with a sword on my back, pull it out, and raise it. So the props had everything ready. I tried to put it on, but it was too tight. I was attempting to walk alongside it. It simply doesn’t look cool, with the sword swaying all over the place, trying to get through the ropes and possibly getting caught. McIntyre eventually met with the now-retired McMahon in his office to discuss his concerns. It didn’t take long for the veteran WWE CEO and Chairman to devise a new strategy.
He decided to take the sword from me, paused for a moment, swung it around his office, held it up flipped it around, and jammed it on the ground, then said, Come with me. We proceeded to the stage, and within five minutes he made the entry in which I walk out, hold the sword up, spin it around, and shove it into the stage. McIntyre now brings the Scottish broadsword to the circle, and pyrotechnics are set off both on the stage and in the ring posts.
The Return Of An Old WWE Theme
Drew McIntyre has gone through many different phases in his wrestling career, but many consider his current work to be the finest of his time with WWE. Many fans will miss McIntyre’s theme music, Broken Dreams, and he used from 2009 to 2013. McIntyre was eventually let go by WWE in 2014. To the chagrin of many fans, he was given a new theme song upon his return in 2017.
When questioned about the song on WWE Espaol’s El Brunch de WWE by correspondent Quetzalli Bulnes, McIntyre joked, It was my song when I was The Chosen One and people start saying about that for some reason a lot these days. Broken Dreams, according to the former WWE Champion, was not the song he began with, but an upgrade he requested from production.
I asked if they could find a different song that suited the character better. They returned with Broken Dreams. The song’s popularity persisted even while McIntyre was still performing it. It sold as much as Cena’s online, I think, which is crazy, McIntyre said. McIntyre accepted that many audience wants to hear the song again, stating that he, too, would enjoy hearing it for a special occasion. I think about having it for a big match, so fingers are crossed, tormented the Scotsman. I ’m constantly working on making things happen, I can assure people that.
