Drew McIntyre has reflected on a recent mishap he was involved with on SmackDown and says the situation surrounding it was “frustrating.”
The tension between Karrion Kross and Drew McIntyre was revved up to new heights on Friday Night SmackDown in Salt Lake City, Utah recently. McIntyre issued a challenge to Kross for Extreme Rules and the two men will meet in a Strap Match.
While McIntyre was issuing his challenge, Scarlett appeared to offer a distraction and allow Kross to attack the Scottish star from behind. A brawl ensued with McIntyre getting the upper hand on the former two-time NXT Champion.
Scarlett sought to protect her husband in the time honoured traditional way in pro wrestling – by throwing a fireball in Drew McIntyre’s face. The flame clearly shot past McIntyre’s face but offered more of a distraction to allow Karrion Kross to ultimately get the upper hand – although Scarlett did also nail McIntyre with a low blow.
Speaking to My San Antonio, Drew McIntyre was asked about the incident and says that in 20 years of wrestling he trusts nothing and so he was able to call an audible:
“It is frustrating when it is something that should be ready to go on a live television show. But at the same time, it is a live television show, and it is not my first day. So, I know things don’t always go like they are supposed to go. Hence, why I didn’t fall down and hold my face because I don’t trust anything after 20 years in wrestling.”
“I just reacted until I knew everything is OK, and then someone got the cue, and it was not OK. So, I called what I had to call, and we got the save at the end and got the bad guy reaction and putting some heat on the new characters on the show.”
