Drew McIntyre Says He’s The ‘John Cena Of NXT’

WWE NXT Superstar Drew McIntyre recently made an appearance on former WWE Superstar Sean “X-Pac” Waltman’s podcast, X-Pac 12360, and talked about a variety of professional wrestling topics. McIntyre touched on NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III possibly topping SummerSlam, Jinder Mahal’s WWE Championship win, and dubbing himself the ‘John Cena of NXT.’ You can see what he had to say here below:

NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III possibly toping SummerSlam:

“NXT TakeOver, is only four times a year, they’re always a spectacle, everyone busts their ass. And we’ve got like a silent competition, I’ll say it. SummerSlam is the next day. …We wanna top SummerSlam. We’re gonna top SummerSlam.”

Jinder Mahal winning the WWE Championship:

“I was there that night in Chicago. The pre-show for NXT the night before, I stayed for the PPV the next day. I didn’t want to know the results, and I told both of them [Jinder Mahal] and Randy [Orton] don’t tell me, I’ll watch from the crowd. And when he won, most of the NXT roster were heading to the bus, and I sprinted off like the Ultimate Warrior, straight to ‘gorilla.’ I was right there waiting for him and I busting a 3MB air guitar.”

Being the ‘John Cena of NXT’:

“Just think of me as your John Cena of NXT. If there is something going on and someone doesn’t want to do it, then I’m your guy. I’m doing this, I’m happy. It’s nothing fake, I generally do enjoy this.”
