Everyone in the locker room can’t stand Sami, and we’re all very happy that I nearly kicked his head off.” Megan also wonders what will be next for McIntyre on the blue brand, and Drew tells her “whatever comes my way. I’ve been around for years, and I take things one week at a time. If anyone steps up to Drew McIntyre, I will knock them down.” Megan pitches Talking Smack back over to Matt and Jackie, who sends the show to an ad break.
