WWE champion Drew McIntyre recently spoke with Sportskeeda about a variety of different subjects, most notably his reactions to the legendary Undertaker’s comments on the Joe Rogan Experience, where the Deadman said that today’s WWE product was soft compared to what it used to be. Hear what the Scottish Psychopath had to say below.
I don’t agree whatsoever. Especially from an in-ring perspective. I’ve listened to part of it, I’ve got to listen to the whole thing it’s pretty new, but I think he may have been referring to like the kind of storylines and characters etc. Like the co-host that was on the show was like a fan from the attitude era and I think they were perhaps referring to some of the outlandish storylines. Back in the day, there were more sexual based, more like risque 18 plus. Our current product is PG, there’s only so far we can push it and we’re willing to push it. There’s certain things from back in the day that was awesome and certain things that were not awesome that I wouldn’t wanna go back to. So I’m not sure if it was more from like that perspective when it comes to the stories and not being as adult-based as it used to be but I think you know we’re walking a good line right now. But when it comes to the in-ring game, that’s just not true at all. It’s never been more physical.
McIntyre will be returning to this week’s Raw after being out with COVID-19. He is set to have a face-off with Goldberg, who he’ll be defending the WWE title against at the Royal Rumble. Check out his full interview below. (H/T and transcribed by Ringside News)
