Drew McIntyre's career has been a whirlwind of success and failure

After a brief and unsuccessful debut on the main roster, McIntyre returned to the developmentals before returning to the main roster as 'The Chosen One' of WWE boss Vince McMahon. While pushed heavily at first, he quickly became relegated to secondary and comedic roles, finally joining forces with fellow future WWE Champion Jinder Mahal and Heath Slater, leading to the formation of 3MB, a lower-midcard faction that mostly lost matches to bigger teams.

After being released by WWE, McIntyre went on to reinvent himself at the indy scene. Now known as Drew Galloway, he especially found success at Impact Wrestling, then known as TNA and Evolve, winning the top championships of both promotions.

Drew McIntyre eventually returned to WWE and started competing in the NXT brand, winning the NXT Championship. Less than five months since his NXT debut, McIntyre went on to defeat Bobby Roode for the NXT Championship. He was undefeated until a championship loss to Andrade 'Cien' Almas.


McIntyre re-debuted on the main roster as the enforcer for Dolph Ziggler and went on to take part in various rivalries, until his win at the Royal Rumble 2020. McIntyre defeated Brock Lesnar to win the WWE Championship, more than a decade after McMahon's prophecy.

McIntyre will defend the WWE Championship against a motivated Bobby Lashley on WWE Backlah.
