• Drew McIntyre Shares The Undertaker’s Hilarious Reaction When He Started Growing A Beard
WWE Champion Drew McIntyre was the latest guest on Lillian Garcia’ Chasing Glory Podcast, where he shared different stories about his WWE career.
He said that The Undertaker used to give him advice, when he started his career on SmackDown at the age of 24. McIntyre also said that Sheamus had formed the same sort of relationship with Triple H.
“[Sheamus] would talk about how [Triple H] sat him down and explained it step by step. ‘Taker would sit there and give riddles I could never figure out, ‘It’s not playing the wrestler, it’s being the wrestler.’ I’m walking away like, ‘What the hell is he talking about? He’s giving me riddles!”
McIntyre then revealed Undertaker’s hilarious comment about his new look:
“When I tried to grow a beard for the first time, he said, ‘I’ve got more hair on my a$$ than you’ve got on your face, boy.”
