Drew McIntyre comments on Paul Heyman being removed from WWE creative

Drew McIntyre did an interview with TV Insider to promote Sunday’s Backlash pay-per-view event where he’ll make his next defense of the WWE Title against Bobby Lashley.

During the interview, the WWE Champion was asked about the big decision made by Vince McMahon to shake up the creative for the Raw brand.

As noted, WWE announced on Thursday that Paul Heyman has been removed as the Executive Director of Raw as Bruce Prichard will now be taking the creative lead on both Raw and SmackDown.

Since that time, there’s been a ton of news regarding the move including McMahon not liking Heyman. 

McIntyre gave his first comments about the shift in creative for the brand where he serves as its top champion.

“I don’t know the ins and outs regarding creative. I get my creative and go from there. I figure out best what works for Drew McIntyre and the storyline. Regarding Paul Heyman the character, that is very interesting for myself. The last time we interacted was going into WrestleMania against Brock Lesnar before I defeated him in five minutes in the main event. There may be things to happen down the line. Brock is lurking in the shadows. If he wants to get beat in three and 23 seconds this time.

Or perhaps Paul Heyman has his eyes on other superstars he wants to bring to Drew McIntyre. Either way, I always enjoy a little joke with Paul Heyman on the microphone. There is nobody better than him. It forces you to up your game. Hopefully, we’ll be seeing him soon enough.”

McIntyre also discussed facing Lashley at Backlash, The Undertaker, and more. Check out the full interview here.
