As noted, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre spoke with The Telegraph India during his media rounds to promote his upcoming title defense against WWE Hall Of Fame legend Bill Goldberg at this Sunday’s WWE Royal Rumble 2021.
In addition to the highlights we posted from the interview, “The Scottish Warrior” also spoke about what he learned from The Undertaker during their respective runs in WWE.
Featured below is an additional excerpt from the new Drew McIntyre interview with The Telegraph India where the WWE Champion touches on this particular topic.
“I learnt tons from being around Taker. He has such an advanced wrestling IQ, that sometimes when he spoke to me, it was like a doctor speaking to someone in high school. But eventually, his lessons would kick in… The exact phrase he would use was ‘stop playing the wrestler, be the wrestler’. What he meant was while out there in the ring, relax, embrace the moment, and have fun. When you start having fun, the audience can feel it, and then they start having fun.”
