Drew McIntyre Thinks WWE Champion Brock Lesnar Is An "Elite Level" Wrestler
Ahead of their match at WrestleMania 36...
While Brock Lesnar continues to polarise audiences, more and more people within the professional wrestling industry have argued that The Beast is one of the best of all time.
His opponent at WrestleMania 36 recently added himself to that growing list of people, as during a recent interview with Alex McCarthy at talkSPORT, Drew McIntyre said Lesnar was an "elite level" wrestler and understood how to work a crowd better than anybody he's ever spoken to.
The Scottish Psychopath said: "Nobody one, sells like Brock Lesnar and two, feels a crowd like Brock Lesnar. In my experience of anyone I've been in the ring with, and even talking with him backstage, in terms of learning it's like wow…This guy gets it more than anybody I've ever spoken to. There's a superstar level and being over level, and then there's the elite level that very few people get to."
McIntyre also commended Lesnar for going "overboard" to put him over as they build towards their match at WrestleMania 36. He discussed their recent segment together on Monday Night Raw, where he delivered three Claymore Kicks to the champion, and how Lesnar encouraged McIntyre to drop him a third time, despite it not being planned.
The former Intercontinental Champion said: "Then I walked out, looked Brock in the eye and dropped him three times. And, I'm sure you probably noticed, one of those kicks wasn't necessarily planned. He went out of his way, he felt the crowd because that's how good he is and I'm a professional.
"There were no physical cues so we just kept going. And I was like, 'Wow, this guy is unbelievable' and I'm glad I'm at a level where I can read him at the same time. We're working together here and he's more than willing to go overboard to make me look as good as possible and make me."
