Drew McIntyre details scary rope break spot from Bobby Lashley match

  • Ash Rose

Drew McIntyre has relived the frightening moment from last month’s European Tour, when Bobby Lashley fell out of the ring after a rope break.

WWE travelled to Newcastle last month, where at the Live Event Bobby Lashley took on Drew McIntyre. During the match, as Lashley went to bounce off the ropes, the top rope unexpectedly snapped, sending The Almighty crashing backwards out of the ring and onto the floor outside. 

Speaking to Shakiel Mahjouri of CBS Sports, Lashley’s opponent that night, McIntyre, recalled the scary moment and how he felt as he saw Bobby fling over the top rope. 

For me, it was very quick yet very slow at the same time. When trouble happens, things seem to slow down for me and I’m very aware of what’s going on. I knew when I hit the ropes, something went wrong. I was able to catch myself very quickly and was watching straight ahead and saw how Lashley went over. So, the rope broke as I connected. He was a split second behind me. He had no rope. He went into what should have been the top rope and he continued head over heels at the speed he was going.

Despite the nasty fall, Lashley was able to dust himself off without hard and carry on with the match. And the Scottish Warrior says he felt much better once he saw how the former WWE Champion landed. 

Thankfully, I could see how he landed. He went head over heels. Those giant traps hit the ring apron. His head didn’t connect with the ring apron, thankfully. He flipped himself right around onto the mat outside. I could see he was probably going to be OK. Knowing him, he’d be OK.

Lashley’s current concern is with Omos and it was announced on Monday Night Raw that next week he will face The Colossus inside a steel cage. Meanwhile, Drew will head into SmackDown this week facing the fallout from his team’s defeat to The Bloodline at WrestleMania Backlash.
