During an interview with DC 101, Drew McIntyre spoke about his WrestleMania match against Brock Lesnar.
“I forgot that I was tying my boots, which was in the documentary, 15 minutes before I was walking in the ring. I was like ‘Man, I’m tying my boots, I’m about to fight Brock Lesnar for the WWE Title.’ I felt a little different. As I walked through the building, I still wasn’t in the right mind frame until I saw Brock at the other end of the hallway and I thought ‘Alright, I’m about to fight Brock Lesnar.’
And my music hit and I switched right into the zone, and I knew the world was watching. It was in the pandemic and we’re giving them this escape. I won the title and found out the next day we had 13.8 million social media interactions over the weekend of WrestleMania, up 60 percent from the year prior which is an unbelievable amount of people watching, but it was the height of the pandemic. So, not only did I become champion, but we did a really cool thing for the world I thought.”
