Money In The Bank will also be going head-to-head with the Game Of Thrones series finale and during a recent interview with Sporting News, McIntyre urged fans of both WWE and Game Of Thrones to DVR the hit-series to tune into Money In The Bank.

"DVR 'Game of Thrones.' 'Money in the Bank' is live. 'Game of Thrones' is not real - it's fake. You have to watch 'Money in the Bank' live. Then you can watch your 'Game of Thrones' on DVR later. By the way, I have to point out the women's 'Money in the Bank' ladder match. We have a friendly competition between the women and the men these days and we're each looking to top each other. We know what the women are capable of and they're looking to steal the show." McIntyre said. "I always like to point that out. That's friendly competition that we didn't used to have in the past and I'm just experiencing that being back now. Seeing the women's revolution and its evolution - that's a pretty cool thing. Plus, you'll get Seth versus AJ so there's plenty going on that show."

McIntyre discussed some of his comrades being frustrated with their position in the company. He said that he has see a few people who are willing to change their positions by putting in the work and proposes that those who are unhappy, take some time away from the company and travel a similar road that he did.

"Yeah, I see a lot of people working hard and trying to make changes. Since I've been back, I've seen a few people, in particular, change a lot of themselves and starting working harder in the gym and some areas where, perhaps, they weren't working hard enough. The truth is, no one is owed anything in WWE. You're lucky to be here living your dream. So it's up to you to leave no stone unturned and if there's an area of your game that's fairly obvious to me and other people around here that you're not busting your ass at, then, basically, that's on you. I do see people working hard around me, but in the same breath, I do see people complaining occasionally. It's brought to my attention that people are complaining and it's the same people I've seen not giving 100 percent in every area." He continued, "If they genuinely believe they deserve the world, then maybe they need to take the original Drew McIntyre approach and take a little time away from the company and then once they're outside the company, they'll gain perspective. They're going to wish they figured it out within the company. The reason I know the answers is because I've been through it and if you want to do it the way I did it, you can try. But I assure you, it's not easy. There's about two or three people that have done it my way and succeeded."
