• Former WCW World Champion Says Drew McIntyre Should Leave WWE & Go To Hollywood
Old School WWF/WCW Writer Vince Russo was recently interviewed on the ‘Legion of RAW’ podcast, where he noted that former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre should quit WWE and go to Hollywood to become a main stream actor.
Batista & John Cena made that transition in recent years, but the prime example of a Professional Wrestler becoming an actor would obviously be WWF Legend Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, who is now the #1 star in Hollywood.
Here’s what former WCW World Heavyweight Champion Vince Russo said:
“The TV term is ‘jumped the shark’. And listen, Drew McIntyre hasn’t jumped the shark, the writing for Drew McIntyre has jumped the shark. Absolutely, positively, at this point, Drew McIntyre means nothing.
They don’t know how to make stars larger than life anymore. They don’t know how to do it.
Bro listen, guys like Drew McIntyre, here’s what you need to do, you need to go to acting classes, start taking acting seriously. You need to get a good agent, you need to just get the exposure until your contract is up.
Let them see your mug on TV every week and then once your contract is up, you need to go down the Batista route, the Cena route, The Rock route, because it’s the WWE that is holding you back and holding you down.
Unless these guys love wrestling that much that they’d rather not be in movies or on TV, but Drew McIntyre could be a legitimate action hero movie star.”
