Drew McIntyre addresses botched fireball spot with Karrion Kross and Scarlett

As seen during the September 23rd 2022 edition of WWE Smackdown, Scarlett shot a fireball at Drew McIntyre but it didn’t come close to connecting with his face. Scarlett then hit McIntyre with a low blow and Karrion Kross applied the Cross Jacket submission to McIntyre.

In an interview with MySanAntonio.com, McIntyre addressed the botch…

“It is frustrating when it is something that should be ready to go on a live television show. But at the same time, it is a live television show, and it is not my first day. So, I know things don’t always go like they are supposed to go.”

“Hence, why I didn’t fall down and hold my face because I don’t trust anything after 20 years in wrestling. I just reacted until I knew everything is OK, and then someone got the cue, and it was not OK. So, I called what I had to call, and we got the save at the end and got the bad guy reaction and putting some heat on the new characters on the show.”
