If you're looking for someone to thank for Drew McIntyre being back in WWE, then you need look no further than Triple H.
Vince McMahon has fallen out with a fair few big names during his long time as WWE's chairman. Bruno Sammartino, Ultimate Warrior, Bret Hart. The common denominator between all three of those massive names and more is that all of them eventually returned to the company that made them famous. It would appear that, more often than not, Triple H is usually the catalyst.
The Game was certainly the reason behind Sammartino's return. The late Hall Of Famer discussed how Triple H spoke to him on a regular basis explaining that the business had changed. WWE's COO is also responsible for bringing back some former stars that weren't quite ready for the big time when they first signed with WWE.
One of the biggest of those names is Drew McIntyre. The Scot returned to WWE via NXT in 2017, and in 2018 he made a big splash on the main roster following his return to Raw. During a recent interview with The Orlando Sentinel, McIntyre revealed that it was indeed Triple H who convinced the time was right to return to WWE for a second run with the company.
McIntyre was labeled as The Chosen One during his first WWE run, but things ended up not working out. However, this time around, it's plain to see he is a completely different man. "I’m proud of the different man I became during my time away. I came back as the grown-up version of myself," McIntyre explained. He also discussed his aspirations to become the first British-born World Champion in WWE history.
As of right now, it certainly seems as if WWE has big plans for McIntyre. The former NXT Champion has been near the top of the card for most of 2018, and he will likely feature in a marquee match at WrestleMania 35. The current pick to face Brock Lesnar on the grandest stage of them all is apparently Seth Rollins, but if McIntyre wins the men's Royal Rumble later this month, we'd love to see him slay The Beast on April 7, 2019.
