Drew McIntyre: I Had To Adjust My Accent Because I Was Sick Of 'What?' Chants

Drew McIntyre hopes to make history at WrestleMania 36 when he challenges Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship. Should he win, McIntyre would become the first Scottish WWE Champion in history.

Though McIntyre is proud of his Scottish roots, he admitted to BBC that he had to change up his accent to avoid an infamous WWE chant.

"We have the most difficult accent in the world to understand and I had to adjust it slightly because I was sick of hearing 'what?' for the first four years I was here. I need the world to understand me when I'm champion, raise the title and say, I bloody did it for Scotland," he said.

When it comes to WrestleMania, McIntyre is hoping his home country will tune into the event to witness him make history.

"Seeing someone like The Rock going off and showing the world what we are capable of and becoming a top box office attraction is really cool. And I'm hoping people in Scotland and the UK give Wrestlemania a chance because they're going to be absolutely hooked. There's something for everybody. But more importantly, I'm there in the main event and I'm going for the title," he said.

Speaking of The Rock, he's been a huge supporter of McIntyre for years and was excited to see him win the Royal Rumble. You can find The Rock's comments on McIntyre by clicking here.
