Scottish WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre called the company’s decision to put on a UK stadium show a “dream come true”.
Ayr-born McIntyre, whose real name is Andrew Galloway, led the rallying cry in putting on such a huge WWE show in the UK, something that hadn’t happened since 1992.
And in the same week that tickets for Clash at the Castle at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium went on sale, Drew told the Eat Sleep Suplex Retweet podcast: “It seems like a dream situation.
“It’s something I’ve been talking about, as I’m sure you know, for years and ranting and raving about what’s going on.
“It got to the point where they indicated to me that something might have happened because we might be talking about something.
“I kept doing my thing and going around, and you finally get a chance to meet the people directly involved, and again, that’s an opportunity, really a possibility, but you never think it’s going to happen until it’s official.
“This is WWE, I’ve seen things go to the limit and fall apart at the last second, but when the public announcement came out, I sat there and couldn’t believe what was happening.”
“If I probably had something to do with this, that’s great, but it’s also our amazing team in WWE working so hard to make this happen, but it’s happening and I don’t care how it happens, I just care that it happened. and I care that it will be huge.
Drew, a former two-time WWE Champion, admits he wants a “meaningful” match on the show and has about four months to get it.
