Drew McIntyre Felt Bad About Assaulting Heath Slater On Raw



Drew McIntyre is currently on a hot heel run after aligning himself with Shane McMahon. Last Monday on Raw, McIntyre further generated himself some heel heat by assaulting Heath Slater.

The attack was physically brutal and also emotionally brutal as McIntyre and Slater were once stablemates in 3MB. It came after the perpetually down on his luck Slater came to ask McMahon for a raise.

McMahon refused and when Slater left, McIntyre went after him. For a while it seemed like McIntyre was sympathetic to Slater, stating that he knew Slater and his family and seemingly offering him money for his kids before turning on him, beating him up and saying he didn’t care about Slater’s kids.

Speaking to Sam Roberts on the Not Sam Wrestling podcast, McIntyre revealed that he had felt genuinely bad about assaulting Slater but realized that it was a good way to show how brutal he was as a heel.

“When I heard about it, I genuinely feel bad because this is a dick move.The way it came together, and Heath is sympathetic, to begin with,” said McIntyre.

“Thankfully I could hear the crowd while we were filming, they understood a past relationship and if they didn’t, hopefully, we played it that way. It wasn’t necessarily all planned, me reaching for the money, the banter back and forth, that was going with the flow and going with how it feels,” he added.

McIntyre added that he believes that, though the segment was short, there is something that could be worked further between him and Slater in the future.

“Heath and I genuinely have a relationship, I know his family and we were just trying to put that in the moment. It would be good for Heath and good for me if somewhere down the line we had a little program,” he said.

He also spoke about working with Roman Reigns, who he is set to face at Stomping Grounds. McIntyre was Reigns first opponent after he returned from his leukemia treatment. They wrestled at WrestleMania 35.

“To end up having my first singles match at WrestleMania, be against Roman Reigns, in his return match, it was very special for both of us. It was a night I would never forget,” he said.
