Drew McIntyre: Karrion Kross' Hourglass Confuses Me, It Doesn't Go 'Tick-Tock'

Drew McIntyre has an issue with Karrion Kross, and it goes beyond the way the SmackDown newcomer blindsided him.

Kross returned to WWE on the August 5 episode of SmackDown, and he made his mark by attacking McIntyre from behind. He has had his sights set on "The Scottish Warrior" ever since.

During an appearance on El Brunch de WWE, Drew McIntyre discussed his feud with Kross, noting that the former NXT Champion has been lurking in the background while he has been focused on his looming clash with Reigns. He stated that he'll have a conversation with Kross about his confusing hourglass; whereas Kross often says "tick-tock", the device doesn't make a sound.

"First of all, I’d like to get Clash of the Castle out [of] the way because it’s the biggest match of my entire career. But he’s not letting up, he’s leaving little symbols around to remind me, he’s lurking in the shadows outside the attack from behind. The hourglass that he left in my locker room in Canada last week and also the interview that I saw where he had some interesting words. I see a man that is frustrated that he didn’t get a fair shake during his first run, is perhaps a little frustrated that I got a golden opportunity that didn’t work out and I had to work very hard to get my second opportunity. I understand the frustration, I understand he’s coming to take what he believes is his, but he’s gotta understand I’m freaking busy. I’m gonna go fight for the title, it’s against Roman Reigns, so he can take a stop back. Once I’m done with Roman, then I’ll kick his face off, then I’ll break that little sandglass. I’ll remind him like I don’t get it, it’s an hour glass, it doesn’t go tick tock, it doesn’t make a noise. So I'm confused. We’ll have a conversation, I’ll point out those things once I’m done with Roman," McIntyre said.

McIntyre recently vowed to kick McIntyre's head off at WWE Clash at the Castle. More information is available here.
