Drew McIntyre on Kurt Angle Helping His Career, Working with Shawn Michaels

WWE star Drew McIntyre was recently interviewed by Sports Illustrated to talk about several professional wrestling topics. “The Scottish Psychopath” discussed how WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle has helped his career in both TNA and WWE, working in an advanced placement course with Shawn Michaels at the WWE Performance Center, and getting a future World Title shot.

Here are the highlights:

Quote:
How Kurt Angle helped his career in both TNA and WWE: “I don’t know why, but Kurt chose to work with me for one of his final matches in TNA, but he made me look like a million bucks,” McIntyre said. “Then, a few years later in WWE, he made me look like an absolute killer. I humiliated Kurt and made him tap out to his own ankle lock. I can never thank Kurt enough for what he has done and continues to do for me.”

Working in an advanced placement course with Shawn Michaels at the WWE PC: “I wanted to be there and I wanted to improve,” McIntyre said. “So I went to Shawn and asked if I could join his class. I would have done anything to get that one-on-one time with him. The first rule of Shawn’s class is that you don’t talk about Shawn’s class.


“But what I can tell you is it is an environment where everyone pushes each other very hard and you do receive honest criticism. No one has the mind that Shawn does in the ring. I looked at that period of time as getting my PhD in wrestling.”

Getting a future World Title shot: “I’ve never had a world title shot, ever, in my WWE career, so I’m going to need to win the Money in the Bank contract to take that opportunity,” McIntyre said. “In order to spread my message of eradicating complacency to the superstars complaining on social media, I need to become champion.”

Re: Drew McIntyre on Kurt Angle Helping His Career, Working with Shawn Michaels

This guy has potential, too bad they didn't capitalize on that Kurt moment and chose to go with the forced push route as usual, then stuck him in the most boring "stable" ever created with Corbin and Lashley, then dropped his push and paired him with DEATH himself Roman Reigns. He's still not dead in the water but he's in the WWE, so sooner or later he's gonna be dancing or on the pre-show. Even if they wanted to put the title on him, it'll be your typical MITB chash in chicken shit bullshit.

All Time
Steve Austin, Chris Jericho, Undertaker, Mankind, Kurt Angle, Shawn Michaels, Batista, Cm Punk, The Rock, Bret Hart, Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero

Current
Everyone is buried.

Hum, good for him, I guess.

I still fail to grasp what his character exactly is. He wants to erase their complacency he says, but he's not really doing that. Shame he is a cricket drawer too. He has the look Vince wanks it too, after all.

Good for Mcintyre. I like the guy. I think he has major main event potential.

Been a huge McIntyre fan since the start of his first run, but he's British, so he's proper f*cked.

Guy needs to cut one promo about how he loves watching people suffer or some shit and he’s fine. Right now he’s boring as all hell.
