Being the genuinely good man that he is, McIntyre did not disrespect the legendary Undertaker in his response. He instead said that Taker might have simply said it in a different context as both him and Rogan were talking about the Attitude Era.

McIntyre continued, “I think he may have been referring to like the kind of storylines and characters etc. I think they were perhaps referring to some of the outlandish storylines. Back in the day, there were more sexual based, more like risque 18 plus. Our current product is PG, there’s only so far we can push it and we’re willing to push it.”

Drew McIntyre is a true WWE Champion. He not only responded to the Undertaker’s comment with a sensible answer, but also made sure to hold his fellow wrestlers in high regard by praising their in-ring work. He said there were certain things that were awesome back then and certain things that were not.

“I’m not sure if it was more from like that perspective when it comes to the stories and not being as adult-based as it used to be, but I think you know we’re walking a good line right now. But when it comes to the in-ring game, that’s just not true at all. It’s never been more physical.” said Drew McIntyre
