Drew McIntyre made history at the Royal Rumble!

Last night, Drew McIntyre made history when he became the first-ever Scottish, and first-ever British, Royal Rumble winner - eliminating Brock Lesnar after The Beast Incarnate dominated the entire first half of the match, before chucking Roman Reigns over the top rope.

Hooked on Wrestling hosted several Royal Rumble Viewing Parties across the UK, one of which was in Walkabout, Glasgow.

McIntyre, of course, is from Ayr - less than an hour's drive from Glasgow, and ICW Hall of Famer McIntyre, made his name wrestling in Glasgow, returning to wrestle for Insane Championship Wrestling following his release from WWE.

Needless to say, fans in the neighbouring city of The Scottish Psychopath's hometown were only ever rooting for one person to win the Royal Rumble Match and, well, when it did, the entire bar would erupt - with the entire reaction caught on camera!

The Glasgow event was hosted by two members of Insane Championship Wrestling's broadcast team in Jennifer Louise and JRK - a man I interviewed last month - in attendance, with several special guests appearing across the UK. JRK would tweet about the reaction video.

I was personally also in attendance at the event, which hosted an estimated 300 fans - several of whom would have no doubt witnessed McIntyre wrestling live in Glasgow in front of less people than were in the bar last night watching McIntyre stamp his ticket to WrestleMania.
