Drew McIntyre Reflects On Falling Off Hell In A Cell, Says He Doesn't Like Heights

Drew McIntyre comments on his favorite stipulation matches.

McIntyre has competed in multiple Hell in a Cell and Ladder matches, but he prefers matches where his feet don't have to leave the ground and he can just beat up his opponents with his weapon of choice. McIntyre has competed in two Hell in a Cell matches and taken a fall off the side during his bout against Randy Orton.

"I like street fights and anything goes, with the weapons and your feet on the ground," McIntyre told Steve Fall of NBC Sports Boston when asked about his favorite stipulation matches. "I do not like ladders. I do not like anything when you're off the ground. I don't like heights. It's bad enough being 6'5'', it's terrifying enough looking down [laughs]. (A ladder), you can potentially fall off of, someone is going to throw it at you. Those things aren't working ladders, they come from Home Depot. If you go to your local Home Depot and start hitting a ladder, that's what it feels like. It hurts. Hell in a Cell matches, I do not have a good track record in them. I've had two, I've lost two. I've fallen off the side of Hell in a Cell, when I talk about not liking heights, I've been on top of Hell in a Cell twice and it is terrifying. Legitimate 20 feet high, you're scaling a cage to get up there. Technically, there are supposed to be little assist holes to help you climb up. When you're live, you can't find those things, they're invisible. I've literally scaled up that thing with my bare hands. Falling off the side, the worse fall of my career against Randy Orton, knocked me 10 feet off the side of the cell, which is 17 feet when you look back and before you fall, when you're as tall as I am. I hate Hell in a Cell. Give a street fight, a weapons match, keep me on the ground and let me swing a weapon at you and if you push me too far I'll swing my sword at you."

McIntyre is set to compete in a Strap Match against Karrion Kross at WWE Extreme Rules.
