“I always said, all the ups and downs in the ring, and outside the ring, of this 19-year career, have paved the way for any situation.

“Then this [coronavirus] comes along, which the world has never experienced before, but I still feel the exact same way.

“I want to be the guy, and this is not a downtime for the company, this is a downtime for the world, and I want to be the guy who’s pulling the wagon and giving people a positive message that, just like my story, things will always work out in the end.

“Hopefully I can put some smiles on a few people’s faces, and inspire a few people along the way.”

McIntyre will face Lesnar for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania after winning the Men’s Royal Rumble Match in January.

Mania is still scheduled to go ahead despite the growing numbers of cases and deaths relating to COVID-19 in the US.

This year’s Show of Shows, however, promises to be very different as it was pre-taped on Wednesday and Thursday at the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida behind closed doors.

WrestleMania will air as a two-part event this weekend and McIntyre as well as Lesnar are likely to compete for the WWE Championship in the main event.
