Drew McIntyre seemed a little too pleased at WWE Clash At The Castle, despite a loss in a blockbuster showdown vs. Roman Reigns.
Despite many suspecting he would end Roman Reigns’ reign of terror as Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, Drew McIntyre became the latest victim of ‘The Tribal Chief’ at Clash At The Castle. Losing to a Spear after interference from Solo Sikoa, ‘The Scottish Warrior’ was sent to the back of the queue with the shocking loss.
McIntyre made light of the situation, being joined by Tyson Fury in a sing-along to the end the evening. Don McLean’s American Pie was sung by the duo, along with the Cardiff faithful, but it turns out not all of this was intended to be aired.
Drew revealed on the Hollywood Raw podcast that he still isn’t sure how much of the post-match antics actually made it to air, though he was keen to state that so long as you embrace it, chances are the live audience will as well:
“The singing that happened in Cardiff, if you had told me, ‘You’re going to sing a song after you lose a big match,’ I still haven’t checked how much was on TV, but not all of it was supposed to be on TV, but we went for it. If you embrace it, chances are the crowd is going to embrace it too and you’re going to have a fun time together. After that fun time, you deal with the serious storyline stuff on the following TVs.”
The move resembled that of Lex Luger at the 1993 SummerSlam. Although he didn’t win the WWF Championship from Yokozuna, ‘The Total Package’ celebrated as if he did, joined by a portion of the roster for a confetti-aided party.
Drew McIntyre has since gone fully into a feud with Karrion Kross, who he’ll face in a Strap match at Extreme Rules on 8 October. The rivalry reached its boiling point – almost literally – on the latest Friday Night SmackDown when Scarlett shot a fireball into McIntyre’s face.
