Drew McIntyre Responds To Criticism Of His Involvement In WWE Title Picture
He has been a permanent fixture in the title picture for over a year
Drew McIntyre has been embedded in the WWE Championship picture since Royal Rumble 2020. The Scottish Warrior has enjoyed two reigns with the gold and has consistently challenged for the title since dropping it back in February 2021.
McIntyre's permanence in the title picture, especially since he has failed twice to win the gold, has begun to grow tiresome for some and Drew himself even admitted in May it might not be the worst thing in the world if he stepped away from the title chase.
The Scottish Psychopath has responded to criticism of his repeated involvement in the title picture, though, saying on Out Of Character with Ryan Satin: "I understand some fans may be like, 'Ugh, I'd like a new fresh face in the picture.' Realistically, I have been fighting for the title, or been champion, for over a year now - which is a pretty significant time - but I don't think anyone is saying, 'Oh my goodness, Drew's not working as hard as he can to give us the best matches possible and do the best he can with every interview possible.' I think it's more, 'I would like to see something different here and see Drew do something different over here.'"
If Drew will stick around in the WWE Title picture will be determined on Sunday when he goes one on one with Bobby Lashley inside Hell In A Cell. If McIntyre loses, he won't be allowed to challenge for the gold again while The All Mighty is champion.
