You never know when you might see a big return in WWE and recently Drew McIntyre made his way back to TV when he confronted Gunther at Money in the Bank last month. Ahead of Drew’s WWE return there was a lot of talk about his status with the company and it was rumored that he may be turning heel.
During a recent appearance on the Stay Busy podcast Drew McIntyre talked about where he’s at with his character, and he also explained why he’s not willing to turn heel at the moment.
“Staying on the path I’m on right now, I want to make sure I get interesting and compelling stories. It’s cool coming out and getting the cheers. I always want to be in something interesting and get you emotionally invested as well. There was a period where I wasn’t doing that, and thankfully I got back into it when I got with Sheamus and leading into that triple threat.
“I want to make sure to keep evolving and keep adding layers to that character and doing all the cool things I get to do outside the ring and get that title reign in front of fans, finally. The character itself, I’m willing to go any direction that is interesting. People are calling for a heel turn, but I’m not willing to do that unless it makes perfect sense.
“We have a lot of equity in Drew McIntyre. I show up at Special Olympics and see the effect WWE and McIntyre has on people and I can understand Cena’s perspective of not turning. Of course, he’s on a higher level and did so much outside the ring, but I can understand where he was coming from. For the right time and right moment and it was entertaining for the fans, I would be about that. One of my favorite runs was outside the company as a heel. When that dark side comes out, it’s pretty dark.”
