Drew McIntyre believes it is his job to rid WWE of Superstars who whine and complain as he was one of them years ago.
Drew McIntyre's road to where he finds himself today has been a fascinating one. The Scot was plucked from his homeland by WWE at a very young age. Vince McMahon was so taken with him that the chairman said as much on WWE television. However, it was clearly too much too soon for McIntyre. He and WWE eventually parted ways and the former Intercontinental Champion plied his trade elsewhere.
After honing his craft at Impact and on the independents, McIntyre returned. Following a short stay in NXT, during which he became the brand's champion, he was called up to Raw. Fans who have witnessed the progression of McIntyre can tell you that it almost looks as if the Superstar has evolved since first debuting in WWE. He has come a long way and worked incredibly hard during that time.
McIntyre's unique journey means he knows a thing or two about weeding out complacency. He recently shared his views on exactly that during an interview with the State Journal-Register. "It’s my job and my character’s job to get rid of those who don’t necessarily have that fire and remind me of my younger self," McIntyre explained. The Raw Superstar believes since he has been in that position, it is his duty to point it out in others.
It isn't a perspective McIntyre has simply offered up at random either. Since the emergence of AEW, there has been more complaining on social media than ever before. We would like to side with McIntyre and believe that attitude gets you nowhere. However, recent occurrences would suggest otherwise. After The Revival was rumored to want out, WWE made them Raw Tag Team Champions.
We may currently be witnessing an even more extreme version of that unfolding right now. Sasha Banks reportedly didn't react well to losing the Women's Tag Titles alongside Bayley at WrestleMania. The latest speculation regarding that situation is that The Boss will be winning a Money In The Bank contract. That's certainly not how McIntyre would handle that situation if he were in charge.
