Drew McIntyre on telling Triple H he wanted to go to NXT upon WWE return

Former WWE Intercontinental, NXT, and current Raw Tag Team Champion Drew McIntyre was recently interviewed by Sky Sports. “The Scotish Psychopath” talked about asking Triple H to go to NXT upon making his WWE return, and being introduced as who he has become instead of who he was during his first WWE run. Here are the highlights:

Telling Triple H he wanted to go to NXT: 

“I didn’t see any other avenue than going to NXT first,” he said. “I was doing a lot of work for different companies outside of WWE and my (contracts) would lapse and I was trying to decide what the next move should be.

“My wife and I were talking about the possibilities of Japan and being a free agent, and during this period I had a conversation with Triple H and I let him know my feelings – I said ‘If I come back I feel like I should go to NXT first.’

Not being introduced as who he was with WWE in his initial run:

“He agreed to introduce the audience to who I am now rather than who I was prior as it is a similar audience, a very educated audience. I felt as though I could make a difference to NXT as one individual can make a difference there, as I had done for so many different companies when I wasn’t with WWE.

“So I didn’t see any other route than through NXT and being a leader there and, when was the time was right, moving on to Monday Night Raw.”
