Drew McIntyre explains how losing at Wrestlemania 37 separates him from John Cena. The Scottish Warrior failed to overcome Bobby Lashley.
Many believed that Lashley was given the WWE title a little over a month away from Wrestlemania so Drew McIntyre could finally be coronated in front of a live audience. He won his first WWE Championship at Wrestlemania last year but there were no fans to cheer him on. This time, the fans were there but victory eluded the burly Scotsman.
Speaking on an edition of Sunday Night’s Main Event, Drew said that he believed that the loss was important for the growth of his character. Not only did it cement Bobby Lashley as a main eventer but it also separated his character from the unrelatable Super Cena.

“I honestly think it’s important for my character. Aside from making a making a main event performer that Brock [Lesnar] did for me the year prior, or cementing a main event performer in Lashley, which I think is very important for the future, I think [it was important] for my character.
“I overcame a lot this year, there’s been a lot of Drew content and it would have been an amazing moment. The fans were responding positively and I didn’t know how they were gonna respond.
“I think [losing] is important for me as a character and I think that’s part of my story that I have to keep overcoming all the time. I’m not superman like [John] Cena was a Superman and he’d always overcome all the time but people struggle to relate to Superman.
“He’s from a different planet, he’s made of steel and he shoots laser from his eyes. I’m more like Batman like I’m very flawed in many ways and I have to keep overcoming especially as a larger than life good guy.”
McIntyre has another shot at the WWE Championship. He will take on Lashley at Wrestlemania Backlash this Sunday. It may not be as simple however, with Strowman also involved in the TripleThreat Match.
