STV SmackDown: Kelly-Ann faces WWE legend for rematch after 17 years

Drew McIntyre is back in Scotland as WWE is heading to Glasgow for Friday Night SmackDown and Clash at the Castle.

After 17 years, STV News at Six co-anchor Kelly-Ann Woodland has finally had a rematch with WWE legend Drew McIntyre.

The presenter famously interviewed the Scottish wrestler almost two decades ago, with the interview coming to a close with the star picking up the presenter – much to her shock.

Now as WWE heads to Glasgow for Friday Night SmackDown and Saturday’s Clash at the Castle: Scotland at the OVO Hydro, the pair faced each other once again.

After a bit of fighting talk, the pair sat down in the ring to discuss the upcoming weekend of wrestling mania in the city – with Drew adding he will also have his eye on the football as Scotland head to the Euros.

Drew told Kelly-Ann: “I’m so full of adrenaline right now, being back home. Not just being back home, but getting to catch up with yourself after 17 years and the fact we’ve got the first ever Scottish WWE PLE is mental.

“The fact that we’re in Scotland and I’m in the main event fighting for the title, is just unreal and this is me setting the challenge right now. Scotland, we need you to come out – I’ve been telling everybody about the wildest, craziest people on earth, the most passionate people on earth, this Friday at Smackdown and Saturday Clash at the Castle, you’ve got to break the sound barrier for me.

“We’re going to show the entire world nobody is more mental than us.”
