Drew McIntyre has revealed that he is not a fan of heights when reflecting on the worst fall of his career.
After weeks of beatdowns and attacks, Drew McIntyre will seek revenge when he competes in a Strap Match against Karrion Kross at WWE Extreme Rules on October 8.
The Scottish Warrior is no stranger to matches that involve stipulations and the former two-time WWE Champion has been discussing his preferences. Speaking to Steve Fall of NBC Sports Boston McIntyre was asked about his favourite stipulation matches:
“I like street fights and anything goes, with the weapons and your feet on the ground, I do not like ladders. I do not like anything when you’re off the ground. I don’t like heights. It’s bad enough being 6’5′, it’s terrifying enough looking down [laughs]. (A ladder), you can potentially fall off of, someone is going to throw it at you. Those things aren’t working ladders, they come from Home Depot. If you go to your local Home Depot and start hitting a ladder, that’s what it feels like. It hurts.
Hell in a Cell matches, I do not have a good track record in them. I’ve had two, I’ve lost two. I’ve fallen off the side of Hell in a Cell, when I talk about not liking heights, I’ve been on top of Hell in a Cell twice and it is terrifying. Legitimate 20 feet high, you’re scaling a cage to get up there. Technically, there are supposed to be little assist holes to help you climb up. When you’re live, you can’t find those things, they’re invisible. I’ve literally scaled up that thing with my bare hands, falling off the side.
McIntyre also recalled the worst fall of his career during a Hell in a Cell battle with Randy Orton:
“Worst fall of my career against Randy Orton knocked me 10 feet off the side of the cell, which is 17 feet when you look back and before you fall when you’re as tall as I am. I hate Hell in a Cell. Give me a street fight, a weapons match, keep me on the ground and let me swing a weapon at you and if you push me too far I’ll swing my sword at you.”
Drew McIntyre was recently pulled from WWE live events after suffering from a severe case of food poisoning.
