Hogan, unlike many of his promos back in the day, was full of praise for McIntyre. The former WWE megastar expressed his admiration for Drew’s ability to carry Raw and WWE through the pandemic without the fans. 

McIntyre was visibly taken by surprise by Hogan’s words as there is no higher achievement than getting praised by Hogan himself. However, they did find a target in Sheamus. 

On being compared to himself by Hogan, ‘The Scottish Psychopath’ asked the Hall of Famer if Sheamus reminded him of his partner Jimmy Hart! Taking it personally, Sheamus assured the two that they weren’t funny at all. 

Hulk Hogan recognized the future of WWE in Drew McIntyre

McIntyre and Hogan then ended the segment with an iconic Hogan catchphrase- “Whatcha gonna do?” The entire thing felt like a nostalgic reminder of the good old days in the WWF and was certainly must watch.

Drew McIntyre has long been the face of the company. One can call him a ‘lockdown Champion’ who has held the place together even in the absence of fans.

Hogan, who was the face of the company himself for a long time, gave symbolic approval to Drew’s reign over the company. The Champion grew up watching men like Hogan and his words may have meant everything. 

‘The Scottish Psychopath’ has been the most dominant Superstar of the Raw roster, finishing off everything in his path. He has fended off challengers of all shapes and sizes and continues to do so.
