Drew McIntyre showed off his gifted giant sword on Monday's WWE Raw.
McIntyre returned to his roots for his entrance against Randy Orton ahead of their WWE Championship bout on Raw, donning a kilt and carrying a giant sword.
Speaking to Ryan Satin of FOX Sports, McIntyre revealed is was not actually Sheamus who gifted him the sword.
"We [Vince McMahon and I] had a conversation about it," McIntyre said about doing a special entrance. "Once the boss gets something in his head -- I was just thinking of walking out with a kilt -- obviously, he likes to take it a little bit further and suddenly we have the sword and the pyro. He was very hands-on with this. The sword that I had was actually gifted to him by Stephanie and Hunter. I believe the conversation went, 'We need the sword.' 'We don't have a sword, sir.' 'I have a sword.' I heard that story and told him, 'Of course you have a sword.' I believe Hunter and Stephanie were in Scotland and they got it from a legitimate sword manufacturer. I'm from Scotland and I've never seen 'The Sword Store.' They went out of their way to get a legitimate Scottish Claymore as a gift. Suddenly, I'm walking by the ring with the big sword and Hunter is like, 'Didn't I get that for Vince?' 'Yes, you did.'"
The sword ended up being good luck for McIntyre as he regained the WWE Championship by defeating Orton on Raw.
