According to Drew McIntyre, he was into strange things as a kid.
Speaking with DailyStar.co.uk, the former WWE Champion shared that he visited a fortune teller when he was 10-years old and that she predicted he would be a famous entertainer. McIntyre took that message and extrapolated that he would make it in WWE. Here is what he said:
“I had my reading and she went into a lot of detail. I was conscious of not saying a word and not giving any clues. And she said I’d be a very famous entertainer. All I heard from ‘famous entertainer’ was that I’m going to make it in the WWE. It’s official, she said it, so it’s going to be so.”
Although wrestling was his biggest love as a child, Drew also had an affinity for the X-Files and anything paranormal. He used to read a magazine that covered all of his interests, including "UFOs, deadly diseases, spontaneous combustion, the most random stuff you could think of." McIntyre revealed that he even sent a letter to the FBI once. He said the following:
“One month’s issue had a sample letter for the FBI to get documents under the Freedom of Information Act, so I filled it out, put in my pocket money and sent it. Never thought much of it until a few weeks later when I got home and my dad was waiting for me with a big dossier five inches thick asking: ‘Drew why are the FBI in America sending you these documents?’”
McIntyre signed with WWE in late 2007 and remained with the company through 2014. He returned to the company in 2017 and won the WWE Championship from Brock Lesnar in the main event of WrestleMania 36. He lost the belt to The Miz at Elimination Chamber thanks to a helping hand from Bobby Lashley. Drew failed to recapture the title last month at WrestleMania but will have another shot when he faces Lashley and Braun Strowman in a Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania Backlash.
