When Drew McIntyre prepared to return as a member of the men's Royal Rumble Match 2019, "The Scottish Psychopath" was available for a media visit to discuss a litany of issues. On the media interview questions McIntyre elaborated on a prediction by WWE chairman Vince McMahon when McIntyre began his first assignment a decade ago. He also reveals an interesting strategy for the Royal Rumble game and his goals for WrestleMania.
Here are some Highlights (h / t WrestlingInc.):
Fulfilling McMahon's Prophecy of Being "The Chosen One" :
"I would not do that if I did not believe that , Vince McMahon got his crystal ball and looked into the future. And luckily, I finally started putting the pieces together. I recognized my potential. You have to agree with Vince McMahon. It's crazy ̵
McIntyre's strategy to face his opponent in the Rumble :
Royal Rumble, of course you do not want to go over the top rope. But as for the game, so hopefully you draw a later number. You try and stay as small as you can, which is difficult for someone like me because this high center of gravity is not ideal because someone can push you right over the top rope if you get too close. So for me it's about having this board, which includes some things that maybe I did not necessarily show on TV. But I will not give away any of my fixtures because I have one in my head.
The biggest threats are those with low center of gravity and power. Big E for example and the larger than life individuals. I know that Braun Strowman is not technically in there, but I saw what he had to say last week, so I would not be surprised if Braun Strowman were there, like some surprises in the past. If we land there together, it will be an absolute war! "
