Drew McIntyre recently spoke with TV Insider where he reflected on his recent experiences with The Undertaker and what he learned from him.
“You can’t help but learn from those situations,” he reasons. “I had a big opportunity to work with The Undertaker once 10 years ago, but I was around him all the time. He was pretty much a mentor to me. I learned so much from him back in the day, and it’s great to have him back now when I’m on a different thinking level.
“I’m at a point where I understand everything now (what) he is talking about, and it doesn’t sound like riddles like it used to when I was a kid. I didn’t quite understand how the business worked quite yet.”
On locker room complacency:
“When I say things about locker room complacency, I do mean it,” McIntyre states. “There are still some individuals who out themselves complaining on social media rather than doing something about it. I don’t have to name names. They put it out there themselves. If you’re not giving it your all, busting your ass inside and outside the ring, you know who you are. People are sticking up for the company, it’s just coming from passion. There are things that go a little too far, and I don’t necessarily agree with, but it all comes down to passion.”
