Drew McIntyre debuted a new entrance ahead of his WWE Championship match against Randy Orton on November 16. The Scottish Psychopath wore a kilt to the ring and used a claymore to set off his pyro.
According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, Vince McMahon was "completely" hands-on with the WWE Champion's new entrance and spent a lot of time outlining how he wanted McIntyre to hold the sword and use it to trigger the pyro.
In storyline, the sword was McIntyre's ancestral claymore but Drew told FOX Sports' Ryan Satin that the sword actually belongs to Vince McMahon.
McIntyre said: "I guess I'll let the cat out of the bag: The sword that I had is actually Vince [McMahon]'s sword. It was gifted to him by Stephanie [McMahon] and Hunter [Paul Levesque]. I believe the conversation went, 'We need the sword. We don't have a sword, sir.'... [imitating Vince McMahon] 'I have a sword.' I heard that story and told him, 'Of course you have a sword.'"
He later added: "I believe Hunter and Stephanie were in Scotland and they got it, legit, at a sword manufacturer. I'm from Scotland and I've never seen the sword store. They went out of their way to get a legitimate Scottish claymore as a gift, then suddenly I was walking by the ring with the big sword and Hunter was like, 'Didn't I get that for Vince?' Yes you did!"
