Wrestling fans last saw Drew McIntrye at NXT TakeOver: War Games back in November; therefore it must be time for the Scotsman’s WWE return.
McIntrye, known on the independent circuit as Drew Galloway, rejoined WWE through their NXT division in April last year and won the NXT Championship from Bobby Roode in August.
Winning the belt meant McIntrye was the first superstar to perform on the main roster before winning his NXT title.
Unfortunately, during his NXT Championship match with Andrade Cien Almas, he suffered a torn bicep, leading to surgery and keeping him out of action for an undisclosed amount of time.
Originally, McIntrye said he was targeting a return for WrestleMania weekend, but with the NXT card finalized and with no time for a feud to develop on Raw or Smackdown, it seems as though he may have to wait.
Drew sent out a warning to the NXT Universe as well as NXT producing their own tweet, so this could mean he goes back to NXT for a final match at the NXT Championship.
However, I feel a good way to get him back onto the main roster would be by winning the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.
There is no clear winner this year, and although previously the winner has gone on to do very little after winning the coveted trophy, it would be a good way to reintroduce McIntrye to the main roster crowd.
If not at WrestleMania, then having him come out to a notoriously hot crowd at either Raw or Smackdown, in the week after WrestleMania, at the Smoothie King Centre would work just as well.
Personally, I’d put him on Smackdown – it would be good for him to come back as a new babyface for a while and with the versatility of being heel or face, he could be a good mid-carder or main eventer.
McIntrye returned to WWE after 3 years away from the company, he is a former Intercontinental and Tag Team Champion.
Outside of WWE, he spent time at TNA and made ICW his home in the United Kingdom, becoming a two-time champion and an ICW Hall of Famer.
