Drew Samuel Galloway (born June 6, 1985) is a Scottish professional wrestler signed with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) on the SmackDown brand as Drew McIntyre. He began training from the age of 15 in England, before moving back to Scotland to begin his career. Before long he became a regular in British Championship Wrestling (BCW) using the gimmick "Thee" Drew Galloway, winning their Heavyweight Championship twice along with the Heavyweight Championship of Insane Championship Wrestling. He also found success abroad in Irish Whip Wrestling, winning their top title. During this time he completed an undergraduate degree in criminology. After touring the independent circuit around the British Isles, Galloway moved to the United States in 2007 to sign with WWE. Along with a brief stint on the SmackDown brand, he spent time in developmental territories Ohio Valley Wrestling and Florida Championship Wrestling, winning the Heavyweight and Tag Team Championships in the latter, before returning to SmackDown and quickly winning the WWE Intercontinental Championship. In 2010, he held the WWE Tag Team Championship with Cody Rhodes on 28 August 2009. McIntyre returned to the SmackDown brand disregarding his previous time on WWE television and established himself as a villain by attacking R-Truth as he entered the ring using his new double under hook DDT finishing move, the Scot Drop which would quickly change its name to the Future Shock.
McIntyre would continue to attack Truth over the following weeks which lead to McIntyre defeating Truth in a 1 on 1 match at the Hell in a Cell PPV which was McIntyre's first PPV thus ending the feud. On 25 September, WWE Chairman Mr. McMahon introduced McIntyre as a "future World Champion" that he had personally signed. McIntyre was on a winning streak defeating unknown jobbers every week, until Kane came along and defeated Drew in a 1 on 1 match with a brutal kick to his face. The following week McIntyre stated that Mr.McMahon reversed the decision and removed the loss from his record thus making him still undefeated. A few weeks later SmackDown General Manager put McIntyre in a match against The Undertaker a man who holds an amazing undefeated streak at WrestleMania. The Deadman dominated the match and defeated McIntyre with a Tombstone and ending the so called chosen ones streak. On September 19 at Night of Champions, McIntyre and Rhodes captured the WWE Tag Team Championship in a five-team Tag Team Turmoil match as the last entrants by defeating Evan Bourne and Mark Henry. This allowed them to appear on both brands. At the Bragging Rights pay-per-view on October 24, McIntyre and Rhodes lost the championship to The Nexus (John Cena and David Otunga).On the following episode of SmackDown, Rhodes and McIntyre argued following a loss disbanding their team. McIntyre indeed has a lot of potential in him and I think he will defiantly be a future WWE Champion. Let’s see what the future brings for the chosen one.
