Drew McIntyre is a man of culture.
Drew McIntyre, in the ring, is a man that likes to implore many different styles of professional wrestling. Drew takes a similar approach to his taste in music. Having already revealed that he would love to live in a world where Willie Nelson could play into the ring for a WWE Universal Championship match against Roman Reigns, Drew McIntyre is now talking about the diversity of his taste in music and his newfound love for Doja Cat.
Speaking with Sean Ross Sapp ahead of WWE Money in the Bank 2022, Drew McIntyre recalls Elton John “opening for him,” seeing Doja Cat live for the first time and shares what is in his Spotify rotation.
“I did the Global Citizens event in Paris about climate change,” Drew began. “Again, cool things we get to do as part of WWE. Part of this huge event. I like to say Elton John opened for me. He was the opening act, so I said to my wife, ‘Oh, my God. Elton John’s on before me. How am I gonna follow that?’ My wife said, ‘He’s opening for you.’ ‘Damn right, I’m the main event.’”
Drew McIntyre then reveals that he got to see Doja Cat perform at the Global Citizen Live event At the time, Drew McIntyre did not know who “the Doja Cat” was, now, he's a fan.
“So we were watching the bands afterwards. We got to see Måneskin, who I got to present the MTV Europe Award for Best Rock Band, which was cool, and I saw Doja Cat for the first time,” Drew said. “It was the first time I saw her. I just watched the crowd, I thought it was a guitar player. Like the guy came out with the guitar and I was like, ‘Oh, is that the Doja Cat?’
"When she appeared with all the guys," Drew continued. "I was watching the crowd the whole time. She had everybody in the palm of her hand. She was working them like crazy. It’s so funny the similarities of wrestling and entertainers in all fields. She’s such an entertainer. Such an incredible performance. Yeah, I’m a fan of her now.”
Also on Drew McIntyre Spotify rotation are names like Johnny Cash, AC DC, Melissa Etheridge, Avril Lavigne, Eminem, and Creed. a very diverse palette for one Drew McIntyre.
“But I have my Spotify here. There’s some Oasis, some Johnny Cash, Manson, some Elton John—which, apparently, was my most listened to artist last year—Dumb and Dumber soundtrack, Renee Young—big shout out for Renee and the podcast—AC/DC, Melissa Etheridge, [the pla-play-mose], Slipknot, Roy Orbison, Marshall Mathers, Creed. I’m so diversified. I listened to Avril Lavigne on the way here,” Drew said.
Though he may listen to Avril Lavigne, Drew McIntyre, in the ring, is anything but a Sk8er Boi. He is hoping to become the next WWE Undisputed Universal Champion, however at WWE Clash at the Castle during Labor Day weekend.
