McIntyre emphasized how big a deal it was that he came out second. He remembers Undertaker being in the ring and him walking out, trying to keep a straight face. Drew stated he tried to keep his composure while the Undertaker was just pacing around, looking dead at him.

“This day I was facing The Undertaker. Obviously, a big match in my career. He [Wade] was in NXT at the time. I remember talking to him during the day, I tried to get my good buddy Wade, ease the nerves. I was like, ‘I’ve got this match tonight’. And I’m trying to talk to him and he’s so aloof. I’m just trying to get his attention.”

“Wade was like ‘Drew, I can’t concentrate right now. I can’t talk to you. I’ve got this big match tonight, me and Skip Sheffield… So later on he had his big match with Skip Sheffield, and then he checked the board and went Drew vs Undertaker. He came up to apologize later on. And I told him, ‘Yeah, I was just trying to calm the nerves with my good friend Stu, then you start moaning about your big three-minute match with Skip Sheffield.”
