Drew McIntyre recently sat down with TV Insider to talk about a number of subjects. These included the high praise he got from The Rock naming him one of WWE’s future stars and getting to work with The Undertaker.

Check out highlights below:

On The Rock giving him such high praise:

It was unexpected. Over the last few years, I’ve tried to push myself inside and outside the ring. The Rock is somebody I look to for motivation in general. If you follow him on social media, and when you meet him, he is such a genuine person. He works so hard, which is why he achieves everything he achieves. It’s a big inspiration to me to have that kind of backing from somebody I admire so much. That kind of validation means I’m on the right track.

On getting to work with The Undertaker:

You can’t help but learn from those situations. I had a big opportunity to work with The Undertaker once 10 years ago, but I was around him all the time. He was pretty much a mentor to me. I learned so much from him back in the day, and it’s great to have him back now when I’m on a different thinking level.

Wrestling’s recent growth outside WWE:>

The truth is with all these new opportunities for wrestlers outside the company, it’s a good thing. And not just my brothers and sisters, but this industry as a whole. In the end, WWE has the hardest schedule of all. I can tell you that. I just want everyone to succeed.
