This is not actually a rule but an opinion that a drummer should have a good aptitude in tempo. The drums provide the framework of the beat and the tempo cannot afford to have a misstep otherwise the music will be out of synch. That is the purpose of the metronome that’s why drummers are said to have a natural metronome in their hands. Now, if you are aspiring to be a drummer then all you need to test yourself is by drumming a beat and check the tempo.

You also need to have energy because you are going to be burning a lot of it.

I have to agree that drumming is all about tempo. If you are not good with abiding by the tempo then you will have a problem with drumming. Maybe that is the reason why my nephew is not using his drum set anymore because his mother would usually say that his drumming is out of rhythm.
