Drew McIntyre shares his experience of meeting Stone Cold Steve Austin at WrestleMania 38

Recently, appearing in an interview with TalkSport, Drew McIntyre shared his experience of meeting Stone Cold Steve Austin before his match at WrestleMania 38.

McIntyre said, “I saw Steve right before he was going to start working on what he was going to do for ‘Mania. I walked in like ‘this is so crazy, you’re going to be on WrestleMania with Steve Austin.”

He added, “On the night of Mania I gave him some advice which is also surreal. He hasn’t done this for 20 years and I could see… Even though he’s a very confident, intense guy – the way the character is, that’s the way he is in real life – but no, I mostly just reminded him to breath.”

Even though Austin was excited for his first match after a long time, he was nervous. Austin has said multiple times that a new generation of fans would not cheer his wrestling style and so he hadn’t thought of a return in a long time. This reason might have The Rattlesnake nervous before going to the ring.

McIntyre told Austin to stay calm and just breathe. He said this to Austin because the adrenaline is very much high. The crowd is so loud you forget to breathe and you get blown up. This advice surely helped the Rattlesnake as he gave fans a stunning match to cherish forever.

I don’t like too many titles and there are a lot right now, but I just wanted it when I was a kid. So just bring it back, let me win it and then I’ll retire it.”
