Two-time WWE Champion says Triple H is the reason he returned to the company

Former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre disclosed that Triple H was the reason he returned to the company in 2017.

In a recent interview with ITR Wrestling, the Scotsman stated that he considered moving to Japan, but a conversation with Triple H changed his decision and he came back to WWE for a second run.

“I wouldn’t be back in WWE if it wasn’t for Triple H, it’s as simple as that. William Regal put me on the phone with him, we talked for 40 minutes, within that conversation at the beginning I wasn’t sure if I was going to come back, I was honestly leaning more towards Japan and by the end of it, I was 100% coming back,” said Drew McIntyre.

McIntyre returned to WWE in 2017 after being away from the company for three years. After moving to the main roster in 2018, he won the WWE Championship twice, with the first win coming at WrestleMania 36 against Brock Lesnar.

Drew McIntyre says Triple H is a father figure in WWE

In the same interview, Drew McIntyre discussed his friendship with Triple H and its development over the years. ‘The Scottish Warrior’ stated that The Game is not only a friend but a father figure to many in WWE.
