The former WWE Intercontinental champion disappeared suddenly. If you remember the time of his debut in WWE, he was built as the ‘Chosen One’ of Vince McMahon. In the early stage of his career, when he was in the FCW – Florida Championship Wrestling, he won the FCW World Heavyweight championship once. He seriously was a promising professional wrestler. After his WWE debut, he was an undefeated superstar for a while and he won the WWE Intercontinental championship during this. However, his unbeaten run came to an end when he was defeated by Kane in an episode of Smackdown. Later, he won the WWE Tag Team championship once along with Cody Rhodes. But he could not keep his push going, he had to collapse soon. In the past couple of years he was seen as a member of the under card stable called ‘3 Man Band’. Since he failed to impress the fans, he was released from the WWE roster a number of months ago. Currently, he works in a different promotion called ‘Evolve’ where he is the current Evolve champion.
Recently, he spoke to the STV in Scotland to promote a local indie event. He talked about some very interesting stuffs, here are some highlights;
“That has never happened before and will never happen again, Vince endorsing someone like that. I could never be unhappy in the WWE. No matter what they give you. As a kid, I’d have been happy to be Dumpster Droese. But I have big goals. After Vince said what he did, I was always planning on being the best in the world. I’m not happy if I’m not being creatively fulfilled and contributing what I know I could.”
Drew also commented on leaving WWE and his character now:
“It was a good time to separate – I can try out new avenues like TV and film, someone said I should try out for Game of Thrones because I look like those guys. My character at the moment is me. It’s like the Chosen One, but that’s still a bit too much like the Scottish Terminator for me. If it works or not, it will be on my own merit.”
Finally, Drew had some words for pro wrestling’s naysayers:
“There are always going to be people who give it a bad rap. I’d challenge anyone in entertainment to be given their lines at the last second, do their own stunts and only have one take to get it right.”
