The journey of Drew McIntyre to become a top star in the world of professional wrestling today was never very easy. He was projected as the next big thing in WWE during the early days of his first run in the promotion. But somehow it felt to the management that it was too early and it was quite unfortunate that he had to play a role of a jobber.

Drew McIntyre Explains How He Got To Where He Is Today

After the number of years he was released from the promotion and he started working else were including on the independent circuit. He became quite famous outside of WWE as he won multiple World Championship including TNA World Heavyweight Championship.

In 2017 he returned to WWE and this time it was quite clear that the promotion had big plans for the promotion. At first he was given a go at the NXT which is the Development Territory of WWE. In 2020 he won the Royal Rumble match and went on to challenge for the WWE championship at WrestleMania 36. He is still a main event star and he is definitely a big threat to the World Champion Roman Reigns.

“Oh there are a lot of steps. Thankfully I have a book available called Chosen Destiny, which is out now. Step one, as my wife reminded me, wasn’t just ‘I’m going to take over the wrestling world outside of WWE and redefine what it means to be an independent wrestler. ‘ I’d like to say that, and I did say that, but my wife reminded me that I was full of anxiety and uncertainty.

“I had been in WWE for a long time, but never had any significant matches, significant interviews, because I always read from the script line by line. I was very nervous, but I did believe that this is something that I was meant to do. I did believe that I could go out there and make a name for myself and reinvent Drew McIntyre/Drew Galloway. Right away I knew I had to go back to Scotland to get my mission statement out to ICW, Insane Championship Wrestling, where all my friends were that I started with.

“Business was on the upswing there, they had their biggest show in the UK. It was 1,500 people there and it was 3 weeks after I got released. I told the promoter Mark Dallas that everyone is contacting me, why are you not contacting me? He said I thought my friend would be upset that he was fired so I wanted to give him a moment before I tried to book him on a wrestling show.’

Drew McIntyre continued, “I said that I appreciated that, but I want to be on the show in 3 weeks and I want to keep it a secret. So, you know, he sorted out the travel and we kept it a secret between 3 people. I showed up in Scotland, there is a famous clip online where I spoke for 20 full minutes unscripted and said everything that I was feeling at the time. It got such an insane response afterwards, it felt so good to get it out, it felt so good to be myself and I said some bold comments in there.

“‘I’m going to show you the real Drew Galloway, take over the world as far as I’m concerned and put ICW on the map. This little company is going to take over the world.’ A lot of people watched it and went ‘Oh my God look at this guy. This is incredible, he is going to do some big things.’ Including Mick Foley, who went on Stone Cold’s podcast and talked about me, he texted Triple H and said ‘You need to keep an eye on Drew.’.”
