• Shawn Michaels Puts Over RAW Star Big Time During Interview
During a recent interview with ComicBook, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels put over RAW Superstar Drew McIntyre big time.
Below is what HBK said about “The Scottish Psychopath”:
“I think Drew is doing a phenomenal job. He was a guy that had been in the WWE before, but then went out and just felt like he needed to grow. He needed to get more experience, he needed to just try something different. He felt like what he was doing wasn’t working. And he went out and he did that.
Then he came back through NXT, was a guy that did not have to be here at the Performance Center on a regular basis, but he still came down here, came and sat, certainly in our class, took part in it. He made the most of the opportunity that he had.”
