Drew McIntyre has emerged in recent years as a bonafide star in WWE. His hard work paid off when he captured the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 36.

McIntyre held on to the WWE Championship for over 200 days his first time. He'd win the title again, but his reign was comparatively short-lived. However, McIntyre has a real shot at reaching the top of the summit once again.

The Scottish Psychopath will challenge Roman Reigns for the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship at Clast At The Castle. Being the first stadium show in the UK since SummerSlam 1992 and the first WWE UK premium live event since Insurrection 2003, it's sure to be a special moment for McIntyre.

McIntyre spoke with wrestling journalist Chris Van Vliet recently. The Scottish Psychopath acknowledged how cliche it sounds, but he maintains that he is living his dreams right now.

"When I say that I dreamt of moments when I was a kid, I dreamt of main-eventing WrestleMania and all these big moments that seemed attainable. In my mind, they were attainable, but nobody else believed that I could do it, coming from Scotland to the WWE," McIntyre said.

Pushing The Issue

McIntyre was elated when the show was finally announced. Furthermore, he revealed that he actively pushed for there to be a WWE UK show.

"The idea of main-eventing a UK stadium show to the level of SummerSlam 1992 didn't seem possible because they didn't run UK stadium shows. This is something I actively talked about, actively pursued, and actively asked questions about for years, especially when I became WWE Champion. I had a lot more media going around at the time, especially high profile media. I mentioned it all the frigging time," McIntyre said.

Knowing Too Much

McIntyre says he was relentless in his pursuit of a WWE UK show. So much so that some people within the company thought he knew more than he should.

"Thankfully I guess that there were some talks going on behind closed doors that I didn't know about. It got to a point when I talked about it so much that someone had to say to me, 'Do you know something you shouldn't know?' I said, 'Nope, I know nothing. I have just got certain goals that I have been pushing for a while. You do what you are doing and I will do what I am doing, and hopefully, this will work out.'

"Thankfully, it did work out. I got involved in the process eventually and it is happening now. I would love to take the credit for it, but it's the unsung heroes behind closed doors that work in WWE that make these things happen," McIntyre said.

Another Special Moment

Speaking of special and memorable moments, McIntyre created one at WrestleMania 38. He used his sword to cut the ring ropes, which had many fans buzzing. He spoke about how that all came together.

"I managed to cut the top two ropes, maybe it was only supposed to be one rope, but it could have been a disaster and I could have cut no ropes. Everyone thinks that the ropes were rigged and they were going to split apart on command, they weren't. It was real ropes and it was a sword that was extremely sharp. I had to hit it perfectly, and thank God it worked out in the end," McIntyre said.
