Drew McIntyre has been able to establish himself as one of WWE’s top stars over the last few years, and his entrance is hard to ignore. McIntyre has been using a sword as part of his entrance for some time now, but it sounds like it was altered a little bit from the original idea that WWE had in mind for him.
Recently Drew McIntyre spoke to NBC Sports Boston about his entrance and he noted that he was supposed to wear the sword on his back. However, the original entrance presented a number of issues which is why plans had to be changed.
“The idea was that I was gonna walk to the ring with a sword on my back and then get in the ring with a sword on my back, pull it out, and raise it. So, the props had all the equipment ready. I tried to put it on, it was uncomfortable. I was trying to walk with it. It just doesn’t look cool, just the sword swinging all over the place, getting through the ropes, it might get caught.”
“[McMahon] took the sword from me, went quiet for a second, swung it around his office, held it up, spun it around and shoved it down on the ground, and went, ‘Come with me.’ We went to the stage and five minutes later he created the entrance where I walk out, hold up the sword, spin it around, shove it in the stage.”
Drew McIntyre will be in action next month at the Extreme Rules premium live event when he faces Karrion Kross in a strap match. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
