Since then, there was no looking back for the WWE superstar, and today, he is one of the top stars in WWE. During a call with St. Louis Post-Dispatch, McIntyre revealed his feeling just before he made his entry into the 2020 Men’s Royal Rumble match.

During the call, McIntyre compared his feelings to a moment in Lady Gaga’s ‘A Star Is Born.’ He said, “If you remember that scene in ‘A Star Is Born,’ [Lady Gaga] had this moment at the side of the stage, thinking, ‘That’s my song. It’s now or never. Am I going to do this?’ That’s how I felt backstage as I was waiting for the music to hit.”

“I was like, ‘This is the moment.’ Boom, the music hit, and I marched into the ring with all the intensity I’ve ever had in my entire life, ready to beat up Brock,” McIntyre added.

A star was indeed born after the 2020 Royal Rumble PPV. The Scottish Psychopath then eventually won his first WWE Championship by defeating Brock Lesnar.
