Speaking at WWE Clash at the Castle Kickoff, Drew McIntyre discussed the upcoming match and revealed that his wife was in emergency surgery.

“I’ve very much got my eye on the ball. I’ve never ever been this focused in my life. I didn’t think this was possible. The last Clash was a stab through my heart, my family’s heart, the whole of the UK. I cannot let it happen again in Scotland. I’m back home, I couldn’t have dreamt of this moment. I’m gonna have my people there, my family there, a redo, a chance to make this right. I wasn’t gonna talk about it, but I can’t stop thinking about it, the one person who’s not gonna be there is my wife. She’s in surgery right now, emergency surgery. She told me, I want you to go there and bring that title home, and I’m gonna bring that title home," McIntyre said.

Drew McIntyre was recently inducted into the Scottish Wrestling Hall of Fame. More information is available here.
