WWE's top Scottish superstar Drew McIntyre has called the company's decision to hold a stadium show in the UK a “dream come true”.
Ayr-born McIntyre, whose real name is Andrew Galloway, led the battle-cry when it came to WWE holding such a huge show in the UK – something that hasn't happened since 1992.
And in the same week that tickets for Clash at the Castle at the the Principality Stadium in Cardiff have gone on sale, Drew told the Eat Sleep Suplex Retweet podcast: “It just seems like such a dream situation.
“It's something I've talked about, as I'm sure you know, for years now and ranting and raving about it happening.
“It got to the point where it was indicated to me that something may be happening because something may be getting talked about
“I kept doing my thing and shooting about it, and then eventually you get the chance to meet people directly involved – and again, that's a possibility, really a possibility, but you never truly believe it's going to happen until it's official.
“This is WWE, I've seen things come down to the wire and fall apart at the last second, but when the public announcement came out, I just sit there and I couldn't believe it was happening.”
“If I had probably a part to do with it, that's great, but it's also our amazing team at WWE working so hard to make it happen – but it's happening and I don't care how it happens, I just care that it's happened and I care it's gonna be huge.”
Drew, a former two-time WWE Champion, admits that he wants a “significant” match on the shown, and has around four months to make that happen.
British fans of wrestling spent yesterday morning (Wednesday, May 18) in a virtual pre-sale queue attempting to secure the best tickets for the company's first UK stadium show in more than 30 years.
