Drew McIntyre: Madcap Moss Was A Great Person In NXT, Happy Corbin Is Holding Him Back

Drew McIntyre sees big things for Madcap Moss.

Drew McIntyre has spent all of 2022 so far fighting Happy Corbin and Madcap Moss. Corbin and Moss injured Drew McIntyre on the first of the year and Drew McIntyre got revenge on Moss in Saudi Arabia at WWE Elimination Chamber. Now, ahead of the match that Drew McIntyre will have with Happy Corbin at WrestleMania 38, McIntyre says he sees big things for Riddick Moss in the future if he can get away from Baron Corbin.

McIntyre expressed these feelings on the March 23 episode of WWE’s The Bump.

“When it comes to Madcap, he's somebody I've always seen potential and I was around him at NXT," said Drew. "I've watched just how hard he works. He's been injured a couple of times, a couple of significant injuries. He's not let it deter him. He's come back. He's a big guy, he'll look great on a poster. But when it comes to the in-ring aspects, he works so hard, he is very good. He was an incredible human being during his time in NXT. Unfortunately, he’s gone down a bad path, I've been there myself, he’s aligned himself with Corbin, his first mistake, his second mistake was going after Drew McIntyre, but hopefully starting to see the light now. He's certainly got a very bright future."

Continuing on, Drew McIntyre says that he believes Madcap did what he had to do to get his foot in the door on the main roster but ultimately believes the Happy Corbin is holding back the potential of Riddick Moss.

“Yeah. I mean, I guess he got his foot in the foot in the door. Like, if you look for a positive. He has been in NXT for a long time, he's finally getting his foot in the door, and he's getting to show what he can do, which is last a long time in the ring with Drew McIntyre, as well as landing on his head during a match and continuing, showing just how tough he really is, and his foot’s in the door. Hopefully, he listens to those around them, opens his eyes, sees the light of day understands that Corbin is just holding him back and that he can be something in WWE, and I do believe he's got a bright future,” Drew said.
