Drew McIntyre was part of Good Karma Wrestling. One of the topics was the recent WWE roster cuts. McIntyre believes that he can be a role model for such wrestlers, given that he experienced the same. However, he worked a lot on himself, changed his character and proved that he has become better and stronger!

“I hope they are inspired. From what I gather, the company literally tells people, ‘Do a Drew.’ My brother once said ‘you’ve become a verb.’ You have to go out there and reinvent yourself, grow your brand and make yourself more valuable.

I believe that’s the advice that the company literally gives people and some of the Superstars that are released and come to me to ask for advice. Hopefully they’ll look at the template of what I did. When I left, the model was usually take that WWE character take it around the world, get paid X amount, the 2nd time around you’ll make a little less and finally you’ll find a wage that you’ll stop on and that will be your wage and hopefully one day you will make it back to WWE.

My business mindset was, ‘that’s terrible business sense.’ I’m absolutely not doing that, I’m going to reinvent myself, I’m going to show what I can truly do. Social media is becoming really big which it was becoming huge in 2014.

I can take everyone around the world with me on my journey and I’m really going to reinvent what it means to be an independent wrestler."- McIntyre said, as quoted by pwmania.com!

Drew McIntyre had a motive to show everyone how capable he is.

Drew is not the only one who succeeded in this. He is happy that others noticed the talent in him and gave him a chance, which he took advantage of. "Thankfully a lot of people believed in me, gave me a lot of opportunities, a lot of platforms to show what I can do and I really succeed and everybody can follow that.

The next guy was Cody Rhodes and he had his own version which led to the creation of another company. You watch Matt Cardona now, while Cody and I eventually kind of went to the TV level, Matt’s been able to keep it at an independent level but really become super popular, super successful. And he has carny in him that I never truly had”.
