Richard Valero: What inspired you to take part in events like this one?
Drew Mcintyre: I want to be a part of whatever I can do to make a difference and use our ability to be WWE Superstars to bring awareness to places like PENCIL. It became very important to me during my 2nd run with WWE. I was signed when I was 21 from Scottland and spent eight years with WWE, and it was all very much about the in-ring stuff, winning titles, the glory on TV, probably the same outside the company. I was trying to work my way back and find myself as a person or as a wrestler, more specifically as a person. I realized I wanted to make a difference wherever I could.
