Drew McIntyre spoke about changing his character on WWE's The Bump. He understood that he needed to make some adjustments to move forward in his career. This change was important for his career growth and it turned out to be a smart move.

“I realized after that match the sympathy has to be gone, the compassion has to be gone. I have to do whatever it takes to get the job done in the ring. And somewhere along the line, between winning the World Title and now, I just lost that killer instinct in the ring, and I had to get it back.”- McIntyre said, as quoted by pwmania.com!

This great wrestler admitted that he is no different in the ring and outside the ring. Drew is a person who has respect for people who respect him.

“I’m the exact same guy outside the ring. You’ll still me all around, you’ll still see me at charity events, and you’ll still conversate with me, as long as you’re not an idiot like Jey Uso or a sympathizer. But yeah, whatever it takes, Drew McIntyre’s going to get the job done, especially on Day 1 with Seth Rollins.”

Drew McIntyre on CM Punk's return

CM Punk's return caused excitement for everyone, including McIntyre. He still doesn't know what to expect from CM Punk's return, but he believes that his arrival can mean great things for WWE.

“I obviously recognize he’s big for business, he’s a huge name. He draws a lot of eyeballs, that’s very clear when you just look at the numbers. I’m a bigger picture person. I tend to use that criminology degree and look at, beyond all reasonable doubt, look at the evidence, and I’m not going to go into great details right now because now is not the time, but what I said on Raw is there are so few people on the current roster that have been on the same roster as him for years and years. I signed when I was 22, I was actually 21 when I signed, but I was on television when I was 22 in 2007. I spent years. I was around the person, I know the person. I know what he’s truly like. I’m aware. It’s cool. It does numbers. That’s awesome for right now.

I’m going to wait and see right now because I can’t control who gets signed and who doesn’t. I have stories, I’m going to keep them to myself, and in the future, if we cross paths, I ain’t the same guy I was in 2010. I’m a lot bigger, smarter, more experienced and I’ll drop his ass.”
