In WWE Drew Mcintyre won the Intercontinental Championship once, twice the Raw Tag Team Championship (once with Cody Rhodes, when the title was known as the WWE Tag Team Championship, and once with Dolph Ziggler) and the 2020 edition of the Royal Rumble match; moreover, when he fought in the NXT development territory, he once held the NXT Championship.

In TNA, however, he once conquered the World Heavyweight Championship and once the Grand Championship, in addition to the 2016 edition of the Feast or Fired. On his latest Conversations With the Big Guy podcast, former WWE superstar Ryback talked about McIntyre: “Great call on Drew.
I’ve been with him down in development, FCW, and seeing everything he’s gone through. And getting himself back there, man, and busting his ass. My only thing is, is this going to be just a filler? It’s a main event match, but just a way — because Drew has never been the quote-unquote ‘chosen one.’ He’s not Roman Reigns as far as how they treat Roman.
We’ve seen that they changed, they had several people they were thinking about winning. That tells me that it’s not necessarily, this isn’t to pull the [trigger], to fire off Drew McIntrye and strap the rocket to him.
It’s a guy that has a believable shot, a good story going into WrestleMania to keep Brock as champion. Which will suck for Drew, momentum-wise. It’s great all the way up to it, but that’s my thing is, we’ll have to wait and see. It’s really interesting. I like Drew getting the opportunity”.
