IN THE RING Drew McIntyre + WWE Intercontinental champion Johm Morrison: Drew McIntyre talked about Vince McMahon signing him to SmackDown! and proclaiming that he was a future World champion.

John Morrison came out dressed as William Wallace (the Mel Gibson character from “Braveheart”) to get under McIntyres skin. Morrison said the people don’t believe in McIntyre because he noone can understand anything he says! McIntyre said this behavior will get Morrison hurt, and suggested he start showing him respect. Morrison said McIntyre was the “chosen one” because his head was so far up Mr. McMahon’s ass. Morrison accused McIntyre of being a lackey for the WWE Legends (agents).

McIntyre said he has tried really hard to maintain his composure, but he can’t take it any more. Morrison held up his sword defensively, so McIntyred dared him to drop the sword and fight like a man.
