Drew McIntyre opens up on the worst bump of his career
McIntyre took on Randy Orton inside Hell in a Cell a few months back for the WWE Championship. The two competitors took their fight to the top of the cage before he fell off the side of the cage onto the announce table.
“It really, really, really sucked. It was easily the worst fall of my entire career,” he said of the fall. “For some reason, I thought that table was going to break my fall, but it didn’t.”
Coming back to the match against Styles, McIntyre revealed that this is a fight he has wanted for the longest time.
“I’ve wanted this match since I was 16-years-old,” he admitted. “We were like passing ships in the night – we kept missing each other. We tried to make the match back then at other independent promotions, but it never happened. When I was in NXT, he was on SmackDown. I moved to Raw, and he finally moved over to the same brand.
“Finally, the match is about to happen, and then he runs to SmackDown. I feel like, ‘Oh, AJ is ducking me; this match is never going to happen.’ Then he returns to Raw and brings with him an eight-foot-tall bodyguard. I was a little bit concerned. I don’t care if he’s at TLC. Perhaps, it gives him the advantage. I don’t care if the odds are against me; I always find a way to overcome. But this match is going to be phenomenal!”
