Drew McIntyre Reveals When He First Found Out About 'WWE WrestleMania 36' Match With The Big Show
McIntyre faced Big Show and Lesnar
Drew McIntyre has revealed he discovered he was wrestling The Big Show at the close of WWE WrestleMania 36 just before the segment itself was recorded.
McIntyre defeated Brock Lesnar in the main event of WrestleMania 36 in April 2020, the only 'Mania to be held with no fans in attendance as it coincided with the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
On Monday Night Raw the next night, it was revealed that Big Show had immediately challenged McIntyre following the Lesnar match.
Speaking to Fightful, McIntyre said: "I found out at the very last moment and when it was happening the next day. When they filmed, it was very close to the match with Brock, it very close to when it aired is when we put the match together and I liked it.
"We were establishing Drew McIntyre and what I was going to be as champion. I just defeated Brock Lesnar in five minutes and then the giant walks out, who has been around for a long time, kind of a gatekeeper to say, 'I'm going to see what you're really made of.' I beat Brock Lesnar and the giant, two of them in one night.
"After that, everyone thinks about it, Drew McIntyre can realistically say, 'I went into WrestleMania and beat Big Show and Brock Lesnar back to back within 20 minutes.'"
