Please , i have my own opinion, and i disagree with him most of the time ,To answer your question, some guy who hates McIntyre, bitched about him and everybody seemed to follow. Could have been Pyro, maybe not.
Anyway, I've always thought McIntyre had a personality.
So what if he's playing a prescribed character? So do most people and yet they make a better job of it than Drew does. Wade Barrett spent his indie and OVW career with a persona that was nothing like his current one ('twas essentially generic heel with the arrogance turned up to 11) and yet he plays Wade Barrett with the same conviction as "The Pinnacle" Stu Sanders. Another example is how near damn every successful wrestler has portrayed multiple different characters with great success. If he can't play a character other than "the world's biggest party animal" then he should fucking well learn how to.McIntyre has been playing a forced character ever since entering WWE. Watch his indy work and you'll see that he's not the drone WWE has made him out to be largely up to this point
Then he should make it his own. Throw in something that makes him different. He can't control the words he's given, but he can do other things that make his character stand out.A few points :
1. Most every heel in the WWE is attempting their own version of the "aggressively cocky" heel. So the idea is just as vanilla as the last guy to do it.
So because it's not like him he can't play the character well? Then please explain how Kane never seemed to find a problem when he was playing Unabomb, Isaac Yankem DDS or Kane? Or how John Tenta put his damndest into every stupid gimmick he was given. All characters are forced to a degree, and most of them don't resemble their personality at all.2. McIntyre's Character has been a forced character that doesn't much resemble his personality, so it's even harder for him to act as if he's that way.
