Drew McIntyre Open To Hearing Pitches Outside Of WWE, Will Continue To Work In Wrestling Once Retired

Drew McIntyre is focused on his responsibilities as WWE Champion. 

While many WWE superstars have expanded their horizons outside of WWE with movies, television, commercials, and more; McIntyre only wants to step outside of WWE if it's a way to give back to others.

"I'm very open to hearing pitches. People come to me all the time with potential ideas. My big thing is that if I can help, I want to make a difference," Drew told SeventySix Capital Leadership Series"Right now, I'm so focused on being WWE Champion and bringing those eyeballs, I just can't imagine doing much outside this world unless it helps someone else. That's where my mind is at right now. When I retire, I will still work in this industry in some capacity. If there is some avenue that I feel will help my brand, I will go there. More specifically, if I can make a difference for somebody, I will be there at the drop of the hat. Everyone asks, 'are you going to do movies or TV shows one day?' Maybe one day. If they do Braveheart 2 where they put Wallace back together and he comes back as a zombie, I'll play him. Right now, I'm very focused on WWE." 

McIntyre does have an outside project in the works as his memoir "A Chosen Destiny: My Story" is set to be released in May. 

As far as his WWE Title reign is concerned, he is set to defend the belt inside the Elimination Chamber against five former WWE Champions. You can view the current lineup for WWE Elimination Chamber by clicking here.
