• Drew McIntyre Comments On Wrestlers Not Going To The Gym & Complaining About Lack Of Opportunities
During a recent interview with The State Journal-Register, RAW Superstar Drew McIntyre talked about current wrestlers complaining about lack of opportunities in WWE.
Below is what McIntyre said:
“I can look around now and see people who have lost perspective. They’re perhaps tweeting about how upset they are and their lack of opportunity instead of bettering themselves or working harder outside of the ring.
They’re clearly not going to the gym and they don’t have that fire anymore, and I understand it because I was there. And I can spot it because I was that guy.
It’s my job and my character’s job to get rid of those who don’t necessarily have that fire and remind me of my younger self.”
