• “This sucks. This is not going to work” – Drew McIntyre On Vince McMahon’s Original Idea For His Sword Entrance
On the latest episode of Broken Skull Sessions with WWE Hall Of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre revealed what went down after his return to RAW as Dolph Ziggler’s enforcer in 2018.
Below is what he said:
“The first time with Dolph, I was underneath the ring, I came out, same feeling under the ring. ‘I hope they know what I’m all about.’ I came out. I took out Titus O’Neil and Apollo and sided with Dolph. They started a ‘McIntyre’ chant, and I was like, ‘Oh, thank God they know me.
I got backstage to Gorilla and gave Vince a hug, and he told me, ‘Welcome home.’ And then it was later on we started having conversations, and he was very much about the present during that period. It wasn’t until later on we started kinda talking about the past and reminiscing, but as far as he was concerned at this stage, when I first returned, it was about what happens from here forward not going backwards.”
McIntyre also revealed how Vince McMahon came up with his sword entrance.
“The sword entrance, he had a different vision for it where it was gonna come down and get in the ring with it on my back and raise it. I saw the giant sword. It was his sword from his house. I walked around with it on my back, and was like, ‘This sucks. This is not going to work.’ From the beginning, I was like, ‘This is a bit over the top. This might not work.’ It’s visually impressive.
I can’t get off my back. I’m gonna look like a dumba$$, and he took the sword, just me and him, and swung it around in his office, held it up, spun it around [and] did this (McMahon does the sword entrance). Why don’t we do this? That’s great. Just genius. He just stands there, waved a sword around his office and came up with what we did for the entrance where I walk out, spin it [and] stick it in the ground.”
