WWE champion Drew McIntyre was a recently interviewed by the Hindustan Times where The Scottish Psychopath reveals he used to ride with former world champions Jinder Mahal and The Great Khali. Highlights can be found below.
Mahal and Khali telling him how popular wrestling was in India:
I’ve known how big it is for a while. I used to travel with the Great Khali and Jinder, who is obviously one of my best friends. That was my old riding crew. It was myself in the back, Jinder driving and Khali in the front with the seat all the way back because he was so big, and they would explain to me just how big wrestling is in India. I have never got to go, but I have seen on social media. All the messages I get, basically the private messages are all from the Indian fans, just typing about how they enjoy WWE and how they enjoy the work I am doing, which means the world to me.
Looking forward to performing in India:
I can’t wait to come over to India. Personally, I think that’s going to be a big thing to help in the, I keep saying the growth, 25 million people watched WrestleMania wrestling is huge in India, but to help it get even bigger. I can’t wait, when things normalize we’re able to get back, we get a big show to India. I think that’s going to be helpful to be there live. I can’t wait to be there personally. I can’t wait until everyone is able to get back together in an arena, and I know Indian fans are going to be so loud (and) crazy, and it’s going to be an awesome night.
