Drew McIntyre is defending his WWE Championship against Randy Orton Sunday night inside of Hell in a Cell. The Hell in a Cell match is considered to be one of the most dangerous matches in WWE.
With the match being considered to be so dangerous, what is Drew McIntyre’s biggest fear heading into Sunday night? He revealed his largest concern on Busted Open Radio:
“That was the only time I’ve been around a cell when I climbed it. It is terrifying up there and it does not feel good, but it’s a match I’ve really wanted to do since I was a kid … Climbing back down [is the scariest part]. Climbing up there is one thing, you’ve got the foot holes there as you can clearly see. When you’re live and the crowd is screaming and you’ve got big-ass feet like me, I couldn’t find the foot holes, so I scaled that thing with my hands only. It felt like my fingers would fall off when I got to the top of it.
“When you’re up there, it’s a little scary, but then when you’re trying to get back down. Imagine being legitimately 20-feet high, you have to turn your back, hang yourself off that cage, you’ve got to find those foot holes or not find them and use your hands and scale your way back down 20 feet. Unless you want to jump off, which I don’t recommend.”
This is Drew’s first actual Hell in a Cell match. However, he has been around a HIAC match before:
“It’s my first Hell in a Cell match,” McIntyre said. “The only time I’ve been near the Hell in a Cell is when myself and Dolph, Dean Ambrose, and Seth Rollins ran down during Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns. Dean and I climbed the top of the cage, we clotheslined each other where we were out, and Brock Lesnar came down and destroyed Braun and Roman. To the point that I remember Dean saying, ‘Stay completely still. He might not see us.’ I remember looking at him going, ‘Like a T-Rex?’ [Could you imagine] if Brock climbed the cell and threw us both off the top?
We’ll see if he has to use that T-Rex defense on Sunday or not. As always, we will have live coverage of WWE Hell in a Cell on Sunday.
