Jordan Devlin Praises 'Inspirational' Drew McIntyre Ahead Of WrestleMania Showdown With Brock Lesnar

Jordan Devlin Praises 'Inspirational' Drew McIntyre Ahead Of WrestleMania Showdown With Brock Lesnar

Jordan Devlin has admitted that Drew McIntyre's WWE success has been "inspirational" for Scottish members of the NXT UK brand.

McIntyre, 34, left WWE in 2014 after a subpar run with the company and began to reinvent himself on the independent wrestling scene.

But the 'Scottish Psychopath,' real name Andrew Galloway, made his sensational return to WWE in 2017 and has since climbed his way into the main-event picture.

NXT UK star Devlin was in attendance for McIntyre's triumphant Rumble victory and recalled how different Scottish superstars went "absolutely ballistic for him."

The 29-year-old NXT cruiserweight champ told SPORTbible in an exclusive interview: "He's amazing. He's very inspirational for all of us and especially [for] the Scottish members of the brand of NXT.

"We all watched his performance at the Royal Rumble from the corporate boxes and the Coffeys [Joe and Mark] and Kay Lee Ray and all were going absolutely ballistic for him.

"But yeah, he's very inspirational for us as somebody that stepped back, went away from WWE for a little bit, reinvented himself, came back better than ever and now he's getting all the credit and attention he deserves."

McIntyre, who will face Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship, told SPORTbible last year that he wanted to appear on NXT UK.

Devlin insisted that McIntyre could still make an appearance on NXT UK, even if he does dethrone Lesnar and become WWE champion.

"Yeah, maybe like a year ago or two years ago I would have said it's impossible [for that to happen]," the 'Irish Ace' said.

"There'd be no chance that it would happen. But we've seen crazier things than that over the last year or so.

"WWE, it's some really exciting television -- some of the most exciting television that we've ever put on in certainly the last 10 years, so never say never."

McIntyre and Lesnar will collide for the WWE Championship on 5th April at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
