Bully Ray shared his candid views on McIntyre during a recent edition of the Busted Open Radio podcast. Despite acknowledging McIntyre’s impressive physical attributes and in-ring capabilities, Ray expressed a lack of interest in McIntyre’s character.

He emphasised the importance of a wrestler’s ability to connect with the audience through their persona and promo skills, areas where he feels McIntyre falls short: “When he talks that’s when you’re supposed to care, and unfortunately, Drew hasn’t done it for me since day one. I love everything about Drew, but when he talks? I just can’t get into him [as a Superstar].”
