Drew McIntyre believes his loss at WWE WrestleMania 37 was vitally important for his character as it displays a flawed humanity.
McIntyre was heavily tipped to claim the WWE Championship back from Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania 37, when the two clashed in the first match on Night One, but the Scottish Warrior surprisingly lost the match due to referee stoppage.
The 35-year-old believes losing big matches helps to develop his character as one who has to overcome the odds, saying he is not going to be like a John Cena character in WWE.
Speaking on Sunday Night Main Event, he said: "I honestly think it's important for my character. Aside from making a main event performer that Brock [Lesnar] did for me the year prior, or cementing a main event performer in Lashley, which I think is very important for the future, I think [it was important] for my character.
"I overcame a lot this year, there's been a lot of Drew content and it would have been an amazing moment. The fans were responding positively and I didn't know how they were gonna respond. I think [losing] is important for me as a character and I think that's part of my story that I have to keep overcoming all the time.
"I'm not Superman like [John] Cena was a Superman and he'd always overcome all the time but people struggle to relate to Superman, He's from a different planet, he's made of steel and he shoots laser from his eyes. I'm more like Batman, like I'm very flawed in many ways and I have to keep overcoming, especially as a larger than life good guy."
