Drew McIntyre didn’t like his previous WWE run

Drew McIntyre appeared on this week’s WWE Backstage, just a few days after winning the WWE championship at WrestleMania 36. When asked what would have happened if he had won the WWE championship during his previous run, Drew McIntyre said it would have ‘s***ed’. Drew McIntyre revealed he was not happy with his previous run and claimed he had to do a lot of hard work to change. Though he was introduced in WWE as the upcoming face of the promotion by WWE CEO Vince McMahon, Drew McIntyre’s previous run was short-lived.
