Drew McIntyre Recalls Carrying A Drunk Bret Hart To His Room

Drew McIntyre

Drew McIntyre has recalled the ‘honour’ of getting to help his wrestling hero to bed after a wild night got too much for some.

Writing in his new book, A Chosen Destiny, the Scotsman revealed who his boyhood wrestling hero was. While others gravitated to big characters, McIntyre states that he favoured ‘The Excellence of Execution.’

McIntyre wrote:

“My hero was Bret ‘Hit Man’ Hart. I was really into him. All my friends preferred the larger-than-life characters, Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, and so on, but I was always drawn to Bret.”

Elsewhere in the book, two-time WWE Champion Drew McIntyre recounts some late-night sessions spent in good company. On one of these occasions, McIntyre was called into action to help put his boyhood hero to bed.

McIntyre explained:

“On one of these late-night occasions, I had the honour of helping his niece Natalya Neidhart carry him up to bed after he had drunk too much. Natalya’s father, Jim, was Bret’s brother-in-law and long-time tag team partner. That was awesome. Many years after I had spent hours wielding the tiny Bret ‘Hitman’ Hart action figure around my toy wrestling ring on my bedroom floor in Ayr, now here I was picking up his limbs for real to get him to bed.”

McIntyre also writes about another surreal moment from his wrestling career. He explains how a trip to the site of WrestleMania in 2020 ended in a run-in with the law.

A Chosen Destiny from Ebury Publishing is available online and from all good book shops.
