Drew McIntyre Reveals Why He Hates Hell In A Cell Matches
Drew McIntyre reveals his hatred of one of WWE's most famous stipulations.
In an interview with NBC Sports Boston, Drew McIntyre discussed his hatred of Hell in a Cell matches due to his fear of heights:
“Hell in a Cell matches, I have not had a good track record with them. I’ve had two, I have lost two. I’ve fallen off the side of the Hell in a Cell. You wanna talk about not liking heights, I’ve been on top of Hell in Cell twice, and it is terrifying. Legitimately 20-feet high. You’re scaling a cage to get up there. Technically there’s supposed to be little assist holes that help you climb your way up. When you’re live on the air, you can’t find those things. They’re invisible. So I’ve literally scaled up that thing with my bare hands, hating heights, falling off the side.
“Worst fall of my career against Randy Orton, knocked me ten feet off the side of a cell, which is 17 feet when you look back before you fall when you’re as tall as I am. Yeah, I hate Hell in a Cell. So give me a street fight, give me a weapons match. Keep me on the ground and let me swing a weapon at you. If you push me too far, I’ll swing my sword at you.”
Drew's two Hell in a Cell matches came at the Hell in a Cell pay per views in 2020 and 2021, against Randy Orton and Bobby Lashley respectively.
