Drew McIntyre: The UK Wrestling Scene Is On Fire Right Now, NXT UK Is At The Top of The Pile

WWE is overseas of its UK tour and Drew McIntyre believes things are going very well in the United Kingdom.

The UK wrestling scene took a major hit during the pandemic and slowed down even more during Speaking Out with allegations of sexual assault and misconduct coming out against UK wrestlers. With the world opening back up and promotions trying to address improper conduct, McIntyre thinks British Wrestling is doing just fine.

"The UK wrestling scene is on fire right now. NXT UK is at the top of the pile. All of our roster couldn't wait to get back to the UK. The crowds are like the ones at a football match. They have their own chants and signs. It feels great to be back in the UK. I make sure I have some downtime during the UK tour to see my family. I have been to Leeds a few times with the WWE. The UK crowds are some of the loudest fans. Becoming the first British-born WWE champion was one of the proudest moments of my life, not just my career. It was always a goal of mine when I first came to America," said McIntyre in an interview with Mark Stanford of Telegraph & Argus.

NXT UK recently welcomed back a limited number of fans for its tapings.

Fightful has live coverage of NXT UK every Thursday beginning at 3 p.m. ET.
