One-half of the Raw tag team champions Drew McIntyre recently spoke to AL.com about his goals within WWE and his journey back to the company after being released in 2014. McIntyre said his aim is to reach the top spot like John Cena
"The goal is become the top person on Raw, the example on Raw, the John Cena, the ultimate workhorse of Raw. Just like Cena used to do, he didn’t have a second place. He was always in competition with himself. He is somebody I can draw inspiration from because I am solely in competition with myself."
The former Intercontinental Champion also revealed how a chat with Triple H prior to his return changed things for him.
“I had an opportunity to speak to Triple H, and it took about 30 minutes of catching up. He’d been watching what I was doing and said he was proud of what I’d achieved, which meant the world to me. But more importantly, we started talking about business opportunities, which was pretty cool because the first run, we never had these conversations. I was like boy, I was very immature. We had general chit-chat fun conversations, but never business conversation. Now we were talking as men, businessmen. By the time we were finishing the call, I knew NXT was where I had to be, the next logical step from where I was. I really felt like I could make a difference with NXT and introduce the WWE universe to the new Drew McIntyre before I made the next step to Monday Night Raw.”
