Big Show says Drew McIntyre is champion material.
On the Raw after WrestleMania 36, Big Show was shown challenging Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship. In spite of the surprise, Drew McIntyre successfully retained his new prize.
Speaking to Sports Illustrated, Big Show praised Drew McIntyre and revealed that he was a fan of McIntyre from 10 years ago during his first run with the company.
“I know a lot of people have been giving me grief, saying I’ve had more heel turns than NASCAR [laughs],” “I want people to understand that me challenging Drew after WrestleMania wasn’t about a heel or face turn. I’ve been a WWE competitor for four decades, and a lot of the locker room was my responsibility—that’s what happens for the old guys. I was a fan of Drew’s 10 years ago. It didn’t work out, and that happens, but the way he’s come back and conducted himself, with all his focus, I wanted to show people the Drew McIntyre that I know. And I can testify that Drew’s Claymore Kick will knock a few fillings loose. He’s one tough son of a gun. I’m really proud of him, and he’s the champion that Raw deserves. There are a lot of interesting matches with him in the future that I’d like to see.”
Big Show is currently the start of a new Netflix sitcom called The Big Show Show which is available for streaming now.
