Bully Ray sends message to Vince McMahon about Drew McIntyre

11 months ago By Sports Desk

Drew McIntyre’s highly anticipated return at Money in the Bank was met with great excitement, but according to Bully Ray, “The Scottish Warrior” still needs to display more personality in WWE to truly stand out with his character work.

Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Ray expressed his hope that McIntyre’s ongoing feud with WWE Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER would bring out a different side of him, especially on the microphone. While Drew certainly has the look and fighting prowess of a top-tier wrestler, Ray feels that something is missing when it comes to his personality, particularly during his promos.

Bully Ray wants Drew McIntyre to be destroyed on the WWE

Ray acknowledged that McIntyre had to carry the company during challenging times, referring to the period of low audience attendance due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite no fault of his own, Ray believes this situation may have impacted Drew’s character development and audience connection.

Drawing inspiration from Will Ospreay’s passionate promo on “AEW Dynamite,” where Ospreay shared his real-life struggles during the COVID era, Ray encouraged McIntyre to do the same By sharing his own trials and tribulations, Drew could inject more depth and authenticity into his character, further engaging the fans:

“I’m hoping that GUNTHER can bring out a different side of Drew — on the microphone [and] personality-wise. I have gone on record, there’s something about Drew’s personality that doesn’t fully resonate. He looks the part, he fights the part, he stands there the part, he’s everything the part — other than when he talks. When Drew talks, I can’t get as into him as I have with everything else he has done. He will always be the guy that had to carry the company when there was nobody there. By no fault of his, I do think it affected him. Will [Ospreay] laid out the real-life trials and tribulations he had to go through during the COVID era — just to keep doing what he loves. That’s what I would love to hear coming out of Drew’s [mouth].“

Ray also reflected on Drew’s previous stint in WWE’s main roster in 2018, where he displayed a “badass” attitude while playing the role of Dolph Ziggler’s heavy. He questioned whether Drew could tap into that persona once again or even consider a heel turn, citing the success of Roman Reigns and Dominik Mysterio, who experienced significant character growth after turning heel.

As the WWE Universe eagerly anticipates SummerSlam, where Drew McIntyre will clash with GUNTHER, the hope remains that this feud will bring out the best in Drew’s character and showcase the personality that will resonate with fans on a deeper level.
