According to, SmackDown’s Drew McIntyre was ill last week and was only cleared to compete when he arrived to the arena. McIntyre was involved in a fatal five way match to crown a new #1 contender to the Intercontinental Title, which he co-won with Sheamus. Actions such as this has earned McIntyre respect in the locker room, where he is viewed as a leader for working through injuries and illnesses over the years.

Opinion: That is the definition of leading by example, as McIntyre had something to do and he went out there and did it, despite not feeling up to his best. You can find people who do that, but doing it over and over is a way to earn a lot of respect. McIntyre has been a workhorse for WWE for a very long time now and it is great to see him getting the respect that he has earned.
