Drew McIntyre Says His WWE Fastlane Face Paint Wasn't Approved Until Last Minute

Drew McIntyre was prepared for war at WWE Fastlane when he clashed with Sheamus in a No Holds Barred match.

Appearing on The Getting Over podcast, McIntyre revealed just how last minute the decision and approval for the face paint ended up being.

"It was mine," McIntyre said when asked whose decision it was. "About 4 or 5 p.m. and I didn't get it approved until 7 p.m., once we were already on the air. Corey Graves and Seth Rollins were talking and I made a comment to Seth about his "drip" and I thought to myself, 'I'm not the best-dressed guy in the, just wearing shorts and a t-shirt 90% of the time or a kilt the rest. I could wear face paint. That makes sense. It's the third match, it's the war paint.' If I was ever going to do the Braveheart facepaint, this was the time to do it because it was literally going to be a war. I tried to get it approved, couldn't get word back from anyone. I went straight to Vince himself around 7 p.m., explained to him what I was thinking and he approved it. I ran to make-up to get myself together to tie my boots and get my face painted. I put on the last few strokes myself and headed to the ring. It was very last minute."

McIntyre was victorious in the bout, dispatching of Sheamus once and for all.

He will now move on to challenge Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship on night one of WrestleMania 37. You can view the full card for WrestleMania 37 by clicking here.
