Chris Jericho offered his thoughts on why Drew McIntyre was released this past week on the latest Talk Is Jericho podcast.
I think he got sidetracked when he got married to Taryn, I don’t think that worked out too well for him politically. And, once again, once you’re in 3MB, it’s kind of the end of the line. It’s funny that Heath Slater out of all the guys is the one that stayed. But if I was TNA or Ring of Honor or Global Wrestling Force (sic), I would pick up Drew McIntyre as well, he would be another guy that would be on my instant list along with Evan Bourne. Because I think Drew has a lot to offer and he’s unique, he’s got the Scottish accent. Put him in a suit and make him serious. All you have to do is have him come out and beat up guys for like a month and you would forget right away about the whole 3MB thing. Gimmicks like that don’t damage your career but they definitely hurt it and they needed to get out of it and they needed a fresh start.
