Drew McIntyre Comments On 'Frustrating' Fireball Botch

Drew McIntyre has spoken about the mishap which occurred on a recent WWE SmackDown.

During a recent trip to San Antonio, Texas - to promote the 2023 WWE Royal Rumble and visit the Children's Hospital of San Antonio - Drew McIntyre spoke about a variety of topics, including the 'fireball botch' on a recent edition of SmackDown. 

Speaking to MySanAntonio, Drew explained:

"It is frustrating when it's something that should be ready to go on a live television show. But at the same time, it's a live television show and it's not my first day. So I know things don’t always go like they're supposed to go - hence why I didn’t fall down and hold my face, because I don’t trust anything after 20 years in wrestling. [...] So I called what I had to call, and we got the save at the end, and got the bad guy reaction and putting some heat on the new characters on the show."

In terms of "new characters", Drew appears to be referencing Karrion Kross and Scarlett, who did eventually get the better of the former WWE Champion in the segment, despite Scarlett's fireball missing its target. 

Drew also spoke about his desire to have a feud with Braun Strowman, who recently returned to WWE.

"I’ve always wanted to have a feud with Braun. It's a simple story to tell with two big guys. But there's more depth to it than that. The visual of Drew McIntyre vs. Braun Strowman - I'm 6'5", 275lbs, and he makes me look like a smaller guy. [...] But I also know how the story could be compelling. You have two superstars who got let go from the company, only to come back and try to re-prove themselves."
