Paul Heyman has a select few Superstars whom he wants to push and that includes Drew McIntyre, who is currently on the receiving end of a push.
McIntyre recently spoke to The Jerry Lawler podcast. There, he talked about the freedom he has been given due to Paul Heyman. Once Heyman became the Executive Director of RAW, the change was apparent and Drew McIntyre is making the most of this opportunity.
“Paul Heyman has come in. You know, he’s allowed people to start showing a little bit more of a personality. It’s up to you if you get that kind of freedom, like I’ve been doing over the past couple of months to really take advantage of it [and] ensure you know that you can get over if you’re given that opportunity. I think that is what was missing [from my character] and the pieces are coming together. The size I am, the experience I have the look etc. And now that I’m putting those final pieces together, being myself. I cannot wait, the opportunity was last night I’ve been thinking about it for a very long time.”
He is one of the favorites to win the Royal Rumble this Sunday and has a lot of momentum going into the event. We will have to see whether he wins the match or not.
