This week’s episode of WWE RAW saw Drew McIntyre become a two-time WWE Champion, but perhaps just as many people were talking about the Scotsman’s iconic new entrance as the title change itself – and McIntyre has revealed the incredible backstory of the sword in an interview with Ryan Satin of FOX!
On television, McIntyre would be gifted the sword and a kilt from Sheamus, who claimed to have retrieved it from McIntyre’s mother. However, the real story is perhaps even more incredible than the myth! Speaking with Satin, McIntyre revealed how the sword actually belongs to Vince McMahon!
“Once the boss gets something in his head… I was just thinking, “What could be cool?” Obviously, he [Vince] likes to take it a little bit further and suddenly we had the sword, then we had the pyro – and he was very hands-on with this. I guess I’ll let the cat out of the bag… The sword that I had is actually Vince’s sword! It was gifted to him by Stephanie and Hunter. I did not know… I believe the conversation went, ‘We need a sword’, ‘We don’t have a sword, sir’, ‘I have a sword’. I heard that story and told him, ‘Of course you have a sword!’”

WWE Champion Drew McIntyre went on to reveal how McMahon got his hands on the sword in the first place.
“I believe Hunter and Stephanie were in Scotland, and they got it – legitimate sword manufacturer. I don’t know him. I’m from Scotland, I’ve never seen the sword store! But they went out of their way to get a legitimate Scottish Claymore as a gift and then, suddenly, I was walking by the ring with the big sword and Hunter was like, ‘Didn’t I get that for Vince?’ ‘Yes you did’.”
