It makes a difference. Wrestling is a lot of things, but ultimately it is a visual medium. The wrestlers have to come up with a way to make the fans stop what they are doing and look at what is in front of them. That is easier said than done, but there are certain tricks that work better than others. Wrestlers can make some changes to improve their appearance, which was the case for a certain top WWE star for a very specific reason.
Drew McIntyre was recently interviewed by the Daily Record and spoke about the change in his appearance. McIntyre said that he didn’t believe someone who looked like he did could beat Brock Lesnar, so he began putting in the extra work to make it believable. This included training and adjusting his diet, with McIntyre saying the latter is the far more important of the two. McIntyre would defeat Lesnar to win the WWE Title in the main event of WrestleMania 36.
McIntyre was on to something. Check out what he did with his new look:
Opinion: McIntyre isn’t wrong with a lot of this as he went from a guy who looked like an athlete to a guy who looked like a monster. That is the kind of change that can move you up the ladder in a hurry and it certainly did in his case. You don’t see someone who looks like him that often and it really has made a lot of difference, especially when it comes to major feuds like Lesnar.
What do you think of McIntyre? Will he be World Champion again? Let us know in the comments below.
