What’s the story?

Current WWE superstar and former NXT Champion Drew Galloway will be making his all grand return to his home promotion in Scotland, Insane Championship Wrestling, for one night only on the 12th of February.

In case you didn’t know…

Galloway first made his ICW debut back in 2006 when he appeared on the first ever show promoted by a young Mark Dallas. However, it wasn’t until the year 2014 when Galloway first became one of ICW’s most loved and popular superstars as he made his return to the company for the first time in years. Upon his return to Scotland, Galloway started a feud against Jack Jester and at ICW: Fear and Loathing VII, the Scottish superstar became a two-time ICW Heavyweight Champion.

During his ICW tenure, Galloway was also part of the Black Label faction as he turned heel with Jack Jester and with The Black Label on his side Galloway would go on to defend his ICW Heavyweight Title against the likes of ECW legend Rhyno, Big Damo (Now known as Killian Dain), Rampage Brown, Doug Williams and more. Galloway’s last ICW appearance was at Fear and Loathing IX when he and his Black Label stable were defeated by Team Dallas, after an interference from Finn Balor.

The heart of the matter

Earlier today, ICW announced on their official website that former two-time ICW Heavyweight Champion Drew Galloway is all set to make his return to ICW on Monday, 12th February for one night only to be inducted into the ICW Hall of Fame.

Galloway is currently sidelined due to a torn bicep injury which he suffered way back at Takeover: WarGames in his NXT Title match against Andrade “Cien” Almas, which also marked his first loss in NXT.

What’s next?

Galloway’s return to ICW will definitely prove to be a nostalgic moment for the Scottish fans and the ICW supporters, meanwhile, the former NXT Champion also continues to recover from his bicep injury and will look to get back into the squared circle as soon as possible.

Author’s Take

With Galloway currently being unable to compete, it makes complete sense for WWE to let the 32-year-old return to his home promotion of ICW and personally, I also think that Galloway completely deserves to get inducted into the ICW Hall of Fame after all he has done for Scotland's top wrestling promotion.
