Witnessing it firsthand, McIntyre revealed that the internet tends to blast things “out of proportion”. He further added that he just wants Hardy to be safe and happy, and as long as he is happy, McIntyre is happy.

“For one, as usual, the internet can take something and blow out of proportion. But all I’ll say on the matter is I just want what’s best for Jeff and for him to be healthy. As long as he’s good, as long as he’s healthy, as long as he’s happy with his family, then Drew McIntyre is happy.” he said.
