Drew McIntyre has admitted things didn’t exactly go to plan with at the end of Clash At The Castle.

The Scottish Warrior was unsuccessful in Cardiff, Wales as he challenged Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title in the company’s first UK stadium show in three decades, and things took a strange turn after his loss.

McIntyre obviously looked disappointed, but what fans didn’t expect was after the Tribal Chief had left the ring.

The duo – who have been – instead belted out American Pie together, with fans watching at home wondering if it the unusually cheery ending was meant to be part of the show.

According to McIntyre, ‘not all of it’ was supposed to air, although he’s not watched the show back – if he did, he’d realise it was shown in its entirety.

He told the  podcast: ‘The singing that happened in Cardiff, if you had told me, “You’re going to sing a song after you lose a big match” – I still haven’t checked how much was on TV, but not all of it was supposed to be on TV.

‘But we went for it. If you embrace it, chances are the crowd is going to embrace it too and you’re going to have a fun time together. After that fun time, you deal with the serious storyline stuff on the following TVs.’

Some fans were disappointed to see McIntyre joking around after such a monumental match, but he’s quickly got back to business as he prepares to face Karrion Kross in a Strap Match at Extreme Rules on October 8.

However, it turns out nothing that the Scotsman does in his career can match the ’embarrassment’ of his run alongside Jinder Mahal and Heath Slater, which came before his release in 2014.

Laughing about the most awkward moments of his career, he exclusively told Metro.co.uk last year: ‘I mean, realistically I was in 3MB – there’s nothing more embarrassing than some of the stuff we had to do in that group.’

Drew remembered , playing everything from Mounties and Rhinstone Cowboys to New Year’s Babies as they were featured regularly on screen but never as any legitimate threat.

‘In the end, if you remind yourself it’s entertainment, don’t take it too seriously, try to make people smile – but I used to take it really seriously when I was younger,’ he admitted. ‘That’s boring! It’s 52 weeks a year, there’s no re-runs, no off-season. If you’re just serious man every week, it’s boring as heck!’
