Andrew McLean Galloway IV (Scottish Gaelic: Anndra MacGill-Eain Gall-Ghàidhealaibh IV) (born 6 June 1985) is a Scottish professional wrestler. He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs on the Raw brand under the ring name Drew McIntyre.

Galloway began his career in 2001 in United Kingdom. He signed a development contract with WWE in 2007, when he was sent to Ohio Valley Wrestling and Florida Championship Wrestling. Under the character The Chosen One, he worked on SmackDown on 2009, winning the WWE Intercontinental Championship and the WWE Tag Team Championship. During the following years, he worked as a low card wrestler, being part of the stable 3MB. On 2014 he was released from his contract. Between 2014 and 2017, he worked under his real name on several promotions across the world. Notably he wrestled on Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), where he was a one-time TNA World Heavyweight Champion and one-time Impact Grand Champion and Evolve, where he was one- time Evolve Champion, one-time Open the Freedom Gate Champion and two-time Evolve Tag Team Champion.

In 2017, he would return as McIntyre to WWE, being assigned to NXT and winning the NXT Championship. Upon returning to WWE's main roster in 2018, he won the Raw Tag Team Championship, the 2020 Men's Royal Rumble match, and the WWE Championship in the main event of the second night of WrestleMania 36. He is the first and only British world champion in WWE and the 31st Triple Crown champion.[3]

Early life

Andrew McLean Galloway IV was born in Ayr on 6 June 1985.[4][5] He grew up in nearby Prestwick, where he studied at Prestwick Academy.[6] He considered being a professional football player when he was younger, playing for the youth club Prestwick Boys, normally in defensive positions. When he was 10 years old, Galloway read a magazine named X Factor, which focused on conspiracy theories and ghost stories; this prompted him to write a letter to the FBI under the Freedom of Information Act, to which the FBI responded by sending him a file with several documents.[7] A fan of professional wrestling as a child,[8] he started training at the age of 15, and his parents agreed to support him as long as he gave the same amount of focus to his studies.[9] He agreed and went on to earn a master's degree in criminology from Glasgow Caledonian University.[5][9]

Professional wrestling career

Training and debut (2001–2006)

Galloway began training as a wrestler at the Frontier Wrestling Alliance's Academy at the age of 15[4][5] after his family moved to England and settled in Portsmouth.[8] Although he was trained by the promotion's operator Mark Sloan along with Justin Richards and James Tighe, he also cites the promotion's established wrestlers helping out with training, including Doug Williams, Paul Burchill and Alex Shane.[2]

In 2003, Galloway made his debut for the inaugural show of British Championship Wrestling (BCW), operating in the Greater Glasgow area. While there, he trained under Colin McKay and Spinner McKenzie,[2] then developing the character of "Thee" Drew Galloway, a cocky narcissist.[10] His first match, which took place at February's No Blood, No Sympathy: Night 1, saw him lose against Stu Natt.[11] He picked up his first win on the second night in a tag team match alongside Wolfgang, defeating Blade and Stu Pendous.[12] By December, Galloway was managed by Charles Boddington, who aided him in his first significant success and managed him for the next four years.

Later that year, Galloway had a series of matches against American veterans. In June, he lost to The Honky Tonk Man[13] and later that month lost to Marty Jannetty and Highlander, with Sabotage on his side.[14] In November, at the aptly titled Lo Down, Galloway main evented in a double countout match against D'Lo Brown.[15] He then had a brief series of feuds, as in March 2005, he defeated Jay Phoenix[16] but their rematch in November, officiated by Mick Foley, ended in a no contest.[17] In May 2006, after their lengthy feud in Irish Whip Wrestling, Galloway lost[18] then won in successive matches against long-term rival Sheamus O'Shaunessy.[19]

Independent circuit (2006–2007)

In November 2006, Galloway and Lionheart, in the main event of Live in East Kilbride, pinned BCW Heavyweight Champion Highlander, who was tagging with Wolfgang.[20] This put Galloway in contention for the title at December's No Blood, No Sympathy IV event, which was booked as an "I Quit" match with Conscience as the special guest referee. At the event, he won his second BCW Heavyweight Championship.[21] He held the title through 2007, with successful defenses against the likes of Martin Stone, Allan Grogan and Lionheart, before vacating the title when he relocated to the United States in September.[4]

After gaining momentum in Scotland, Galloway began wrestling dates across the Republic of Ireland with Irish Whip Wrestling (IWW), continuing to use "Thee" Drew Galloway as his gimmick. With Charles Boddington still in his corner, he competed in three contests during his first appearance on 23 July 2005 for Whiplash TV.[10] After losing to "SOS" Sheamus O'Shaunessy,[22] he found a similar fate against Mad Man Manson, sparking a feud between the two.[10] Despite these two losses, his status abroad meant he was already booked in a Ten-Man Gauntlet match to determine the top contender for the main title. Galloway was whitewashed the entire evening, losing to Vic Viper.[22] At Gym Wars the following day, Manson was absent, so Galloway tried to avenge his loss with O'Shaunessy but it ended in a double count-out. Over the next few months, he recruited various wrestlers, even his manager Boddington, in a series of tag team and even handicap tag team matches against Manson and his teams.[23] He picked up his first victory in October against Sean South in a warm-up for that event's main event six-man tag team match.[23] The rivalry between Galloway and Manson was settled in November at IWW's final show from the SFX Theatre. Their brutal and bloody Street Fight saw Galloway gain respect from for his tenacity and endurance, but his losing streak continued.[10][24]

Galloway as the IWW International Heavyweight Champion, August 2006

Galloway was soon given a shot at the IWW International Heavyweight Championship owing to his show stealing performances with Manson.[10] On 28 January 2006, he received his first title match against O'Shaunessy, evolving their rivalry from previous battles.[25] The rivalry quickly took on a patriotic flavour, with Galloway's blue colours of Scotland clashing with O'Shaunessy's green colours of Ireland, mirroring the Old Firm football derby between Glasgow Rangers and Glasgow Celtic, respectively.[10] This football allusion became particularly prominent when the two met again at Verona Football Club once again for the title; although the match changed into a Lumberjack match, the result and champion remained the same.[26] A two out of three falls match against the champion took place on 18 March, in which O'Shaunessy won two falls to one;[27] the next day produced the same result.[28] With their rivalry intensifying, his next challenge to O'Shaunessy was given the stipulation of a Last Man Standing match, but he retained the title,[29] as he also did in June with the same stipulation.[30]

On 27 August 2006, Galloway finally managed to beat O'Shaunessy, winning the IWW International Heavyweight Championship.[31] He successfully defended the belt that evening against Go Shiozaki.[10][30] However, unable to commit to fully defending the title due to other bookings in his homeland and his academic studies, he was forced to relinquish the championship in January 2007.[10][32]

While BCW became his home promotion and he made regular appearances for IWW, Galloway made several appearances around the independent circuit. In 2004, he appeared for the fledgling International Pro Wrestling: United Kingdom (IPW:UK) at their aptly titled Show 2.[33] Despite losing to Aviv Maayan in his first showing,[34] by the time he returned in May 2005 his reputation made him notorious enough to compete in their main event five way elimination match to determine the best of British heavyweights. Galloway was eliminated first by Andy Boy Simmonz with a small package pin.[35] In between studying, Galloway competed in several tours of All Star Wrestling[4] against competitors including TJ Wilson, PN Neuz, Chad Collyer and Brody Steele during 2006.[36] On 15 October 2006, Galloway competed in the Insane Championship Wrestling (ICW) debut show Fear & Loathing, defeating Darkside and Allan Grogan in a three-way 30-minute Iron Man match to become the first ICW Heavyweight Champion. He held the title for 280 days, ultimately losing it to Darkside on 22 July 2007 in a five-man elimination match that also involved Jack Jester, Wolfgang and Liam Thomson.

Despite it being his only match (he was used twice) for NWA: Scottish Wrestling Alliance (NWA:SWA), Galloway represented Team SWA against Team Sinner in the titular match for the March 2006 Clan Wars event, being eliminated first by Highlander who was using the ropes.[37] At the end of the month, he appeared at the inaugural event for Premier British Wrestling (PBW) earning a shot to become the first PBW Heavyweight Champion by defeating Allan Grogan but lost to Wolfgang in the main event. In October he was entered into a contendership match to win another chance at the title, but lost to Dave Moralez.[38] Galloway's reputation continued to precede him as he was placed in the Real Quality Wrestling (RQW) Not Just For Christmas 2006 tournament to crown the inaugural RQW Heavyweight Champion. Representing IWW and having made his IWW Title defence against Fleisch earlier in the year, Galloway faced SAS Wrestling's El Ligero,[39] going through to the semi-final only to lose to One Pro Wrestling's Pac by count-out. He continued to appear in April 2007, taking his rivalry with O'Shaunessy to London with a double count-out[40] which led to a rematch in June where Galloway picked up the victory in a Street Fight. Later on that evening, having made a statement with his win over O'Shaunessy, Galloway attacked the RQW Heavyweight Champion Martin Stone during his title defence against Takeshi Rikio.[41] This attack led to his final match in the UK at August's Summer Brawl, which he lost.[42] His last appearance was serving as a referee for PBW on 15 September in a match that saw Darkside defeat Lionheart to become a contender for the championship.[43]

Galloway appeared on the inaugural Insane Championship Wrestling show promoted by a young Mark Dallas.[44] Galloway won a triple threat match over Darkside and Allan Grogan to become the first-ever ICW Heavyweight Champion.[45] He held the title for 280 days, retaining over Wolfgang[46] and Allan Grogan,[47] before losing the title to Darkside in a five-man match which also included Jack Jester, Wolfgang and Liam Thomson.[48]

World Wrestling Entertainment/WWE (2007–2014)

Beginnings (2007–2008)

Galloway signed with WWE in late 2007 and made his official debut on 12 October 2007 episode of SmackDown! under the modified ring name of Drew McIntyre. Accompanied by his on-screen mentor Dave Taylor, McIntyre defeated Brett Major with a roll-up, establishing himself as a villainous character.[49] The next week, he defeated Brian Major with the help of Taylor.[50] At the beginning of 2008, McIntyre was separated from Taylor and moved to the Raw brand, making his official debut on 6 January episode of Heat as a face, defeating Charlie Haas.[51]

In September 2007, McIntyre went to Louisville for Ohio Valley Wrestling, with his first match being a dark match after OVW TV, where he took on another developmental talent from the UK, "The Ripper" Paul Burchill. Despite Drew not being involved in a great deal of noteworthy feuds during his time in OVW—mainly due to the fact that he was splitting time between being on the road with WWE, while still having to report to developmental in OVW—he still wrestled regularly on OVW TV & non-televised live events in the Kentuckiana area. Drew formed a tag team with the future Wade Barrett—known as Stu Sanders at the time—forming the "Brit Pack". In February 2008, WWE announced they would be pulling their contract with OVW and owner Nightmare Danny Davis; as a result, it would no longer be a part of WWE's developmental system.

Florida Championship Wrestling (2008–2009)

After his short stint on WWE's main roster, McIntyre was moved to WWE's developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW). He reformed his team with Stu Sanders, now going under the name of The Empire. In April, they took on The Puerto Rican Nightmares (Eric Pérez and Eddie Colón) who won the match and a title shot at the FCW Florida Tag Team Championship.[52] Once The Nightmares won the championship, The Empire received two consecutive chances to win the FCW Florida Tag Team Championship on 6 May.[53] Their first title defence was against McIntyre's old rival Sheamus O'Shaunessy, but his partner "Sterling Jack" Gabriel accidentally hit them and The Empire capitalised to retain their championship.[52] The Empire lost the championship on 17 July to Joe Hennig and Gabe Tuft.[53] On 16 August, The Empire imploded when McIntyre faced Sanders in a singles match which ended in a double countout and their rematch at the end of September ended in a time limit draw.[52]

McIntyre moved to WWE's developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling in 2008 and won the FCW Florida Heavyweight Championship the following year.

On 7 October, McIntyre was entered into a contest for the FCW Florida Heavyweight Championship and defeated Tuft to make it into the finals but lost to Eric Escobar (the former Eric Peréz). McIntyre closed out the year with an unsuccessful attempt to gain the FCW Florida Heavyweight Championship in a four-way match, but Escobar won the title from O'Shaunessy.[54]

Going into 2009, McIntyre entered into a rivalry with Joe Hennig, but their first match in February ended in a double countout. McIntyre interfered in Hennig's match the following week, costing him the match. On 26 February, Hennig defeated McIntyre and went on that night to win the FCW Florida Heavyweight Championship from Escobar.[55] Their feud ended abruptly when Hennig vacated the title after an injury, causing McIntyre to be elevated into title contendership, beating Escobar for the vacant championship on 19 March. McIntyre regularly defended the title until 11 June, when Tyler Reks (the former Gabe Tuft) won the title in his second attempt.[54] On 25 June, McIntyre was set to team with O'Shaunessy against the returning Hennig and DJ Gabriel (the aforementioned "Sterling Jack" Gabriel), but when neither team would work together a four-way was booked, which O'Shaunessy won. McIntyre and O'Shaunessy both failed to win back the FCW Florida Heavyweight Championship in mid-July from Reks. McIntyre received a singles opportunity the next day with the same result.[55]

Intercontinental Champion (2009–2010)

McIntyre in a match against Finlay, November 2009

On 28 August 2009, McIntyre re-debuted on the SmackDown brand, disregarding his previous time on WWE television, and established himself as heel by attacking R-Truth as he entered the ring, using his new double underhook DDT finishing move, the Scot Drop (soon renamed the Future Shock).[56] McIntyre continued to attack Truth over the following weeks, claiming to be on the show to wrestle, not to party like R-Truth.[57] On 18 September, while Charlie Haas was waiting to face R-Truth, McIntyre came to the ring to explain that R-Truth had been injured backstage, and then attacked Haas.[58] On 25 September, WWE chairman Mr. McMahon introduced McIntyre as a "future world champion" that he had personally signed, after which Truth made a return attack against McIntyre.[59] On 4 October at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, McIntyre defeated R-Truth in under five minutes again using his DDT finisher.[60] He faced R-Truth once more in a singles match and won by countout to represent SmackDown at Bragging Rights on 25 October,[61] but on the episode before the event, the entire team, captains aside, was replaced, leaving McIntyre omitted from the event.[62] At Survivor Series on 22 November, McIntyre had a place on The Miz's team for the traditional Survivor Series elimination match. McIntyre, The Miz and his former rival Sheamus were the surviving members on their winning team; McIntyre eliminated Evan Bourne and Matt Hardy.[63]

McIntyre at a WWE house show in December 2009

Being the only SmackDown superstar to survive against Team Morrison, McIntyre faced and defeated John Morrison a few weeks later,[64] putting him in line for Morrison's Intercontinental Championship at TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs (TLC). Days before the event, Morrison mocked McIntyre's Scottish heritage by dressing as a Braveheart-inspired William Wallace,[65] but at TLC on 13 December, McIntyre pinned Morrison after a thumb to the eye to win the Intercontinental Championship, his first championship in WWE.[66] He retained the title against Morrison on 1 January 2010 episode of SmackDown and against Kane on 21 February at Elimination Chamber using underhanded tactics.[67][68] His televised undefeated record ended in a Money in the Bank qualifying match against Kane on 26 February episode of SmackDown,[69] but Mr McMahon forced SmackDown's general manager Teddy Long to expunge the loss. The same thing happened again with Matt Hardy[70] before McIntyre qualified for the ladder match by pinning an unsigned wrestler.[71] McIntyre failed to win the Money in the Bank match on 28 March at WrestleMania XXVI, his first WrestleMania appearance.[72] McIntyre continuously attacked Matt Hardy until he was stripped of his title on 7 May by Long and suspended for the purposes of the storyline;[73] McMahon decreed he be reinstated as champion the following week, undermining Long's authority which developed tension between McIntyre and Long.[74]

McIntyre faced Kofi Kingston—who had won a tournament to determine the new champion—at Over the Limit on 23 May, losing the Intercontinental Championship after 161 days.[75] However, he still used his relationship with McMahon to bully Long, publicly humiliating and forcing Long to lie down for him for their match.[76] At Fatal 4-Way on 20 June, McIntyre faced Kingston in a rematch for the title. During the match, Long took over as the referee, but he refused to make the three count when McIntyre had the match won. A vengeful Matt Hardy then attacked McIntyre, leading to Kingston winning the match and retaining the championship.[77] On 21 June episode of Raw, The Nexus faction attacked McMahon which removed him from television for a prolonged period and ended McIntyre's preferential treatment.[78] After losing to Matt Hardy on 25 June episode of SmackDown, Long informed McIntyre that his work visa had expired and that he would be deported back to Scotland immediately.[79] This storyline had a basis in reality, since Galloway's visa had indeed expired and as a result he was taken off television.[80] He returned two weeks later and was re-instated after being made to beg Long.[81]

Various storylines (2010–2012)

On 18 July at Money in the Bank, he competed in the namesake ladder match for a World Heavyweight Championship contract, but failed to win.[82] On 19 September at Night of Champions, McIntyre and Cody Rhodes won the WWE Tag Team Championship in a five-team tag team turmoil match, allowing them to appear on both brands.[83] McIntyre and Rhodes then retained the titles twice against The Hart Dynasty.[84][85] At Bragging Rights on 24 October, McIntyre and Rhodes lost the titles to The Nexus (John Cena and David Otunga) and dissolved their team.[86] On 21 November at Survivor Series, McIntyre participated in a 5-on-5 traditional Survivor Series tag team match as a member of Team Del Rio against Team Mysterio. McIntyre was the final man remaining on his team before he was eliminated by Big Show.[87] McIntyre participated in the 40-man Royal Rumble match on 30 January 2011, but was eliminated by Big Show.[88] On 20 February at Elimination Chamber, he participated in the SmackDown Elimination Chamber match for the World Heavyweight Championship but was eliminated by Kane.[89]

On 26 April, McIntyre was drafted to the Raw brand as part of the 2011 supplemental draft.[90] On 15 December episode of Superstars, McIntyre defeated Justin Gabriel, which earned him a contract with SmackDown.[91] He switched to the SmackDown brand on 30 December and resumed his tense relationship with general manager Theodore Long, who put pressure on McIntyre to win matches to justify his contract. McIntyre subsequently began an eight match losing streak going into the new year,[92] after the last of which, Long fired McIntyre within the storyline.[93] A week later, McIntyre was reinstated by guest general manager John Laurinaitis and finally ended his losing streak by defeating Hornswoggle.[94] He was subsequently included on Laurinaitis' team in the 12-man tag team match at WrestleMania XXVIII on 1 April, helping to earn Laurinaitis control of both the Raw and SmackDown brands.[95] He continued to lose matches and was confined to Superstars and house shows, but was still able to make several appearances on Raw and SmackDown, albeit in squash matches.

When WWE rebranded its developmental territory, FCW, into NXT,[96] McIntyre was inserted into the Gold Rush Tournament to crown the inaugural NXT Champion, where he lost to the eventual winner Seth Rollins in the quarter-finals on 1 August episode of NXT.[97] McIntyre also participated in a number one contender fatal four-way elimination match on 7 November episode of NXT, but was eliminated by Bo Dallas.[98]

3MB (2012–2014)

McIntyre, as a member of 3MB

On 21 September episode of SmackDown, McIntyre and Jinder Mahal interfered in a match between Heath Slater and Brodus Clay by attacking Clay, aligning themselves with Slater.[99] The trio became known as the Three Man Band, or 3MB for short.[100] At TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs on 16 December, after being guests on Miz TV and harassing the Spanish announce team, 3MB challenged The Miz and Alberto Del Rio to find a partner for a six-man tag team match for later that night. Miz announced their partner to be the Brooklyn Brawler, and went on to defeat 3MB.[101] The next night on Raw, 3MB lost to The Miz and Del Rio again, this time with Tommy Dreamer as their partner.[102] On 31 December episode of Raw, McIntyre and Slater challenged Team Hell No (Daniel Bryan and Kane) for the WWE Tag Team Championship in a losing effort.[103] McIntyre and Slater also competed in the first round of the NXT Tag Team Championship tournament to crown the inaugural champions, but were defeated by Adrian Neville and Oliver Grey on 23 January episode of NXT.[104]

3MB at WrestleMania XXX in April 2014

At Royal Rumble on 27 January 2013, McIntyre competed in the 30-man Royal Rumble match where he was eliminated by Chris Jericho.[105] On 12 April episode of SmackDown, in an attempt to make a name for themselves, 3MB tried to attack Triple H, but were attacked themselves by The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns).[106] On 15 April episode of Raw, 3MB called out The Shield, only for Brock Lesnar to come out instead and attack the group.[107] On 29 April episode of Raw, 3MB attacked The Shield, but The Shield quickly turned the tables on them. This resulted in Team Hell No chasing away The Shield, before attacking 3MB themselves.[108] Beginning in late 2013, 3MB adopted new ring names against their opponents, although their misfortunes and amounting losses remained the same. At WrestleMania XXX on 6 April, McIntyre competed in the André the Giant Memorial Battle Royal,[109] which was won by Cesaro.[110] On 12 June 2014, WWE announced that McIntyre was released from his WWE contract.[111]

Return to ICW (2014–2017)

Galloway, under his real name, made his first post-WWE appearance on 27 July 2014, returning to work for Mark Dallas at Insane Championship Wrestling (ICW) for the first time in seven years and beginning a feud with Jack Jester.[112] On 2 November at ICW's "Fear & Loathing VII" event at The Barrowlands, Galloway defeated Jester in the main event to become a two-time ICW Heavyweight Champion.[113] Galloway made his first international ICW title defense in Denmark on 20 December in a double championship triple threat match against Dansk Pro Wrestling Champion Michael Fynne and Chaos, where he both retained the ICW title and gained the DPW Heavyweight Championship.[114] Galloway competed in his final match of 2014 in a surprise appearance at ICW's "Space Baws 5: Bill Murray Strikes Back" by answering the challenge of Lewis Girvan, who had been goading Galloway for a match. Galloway defeated Girvan to retain the ICW Heavyweight Championship. Following the match, he announced his intention to make the title a world championship by continuing to defend it internationally.[115]

On 9 February, after retaining against Matt Hardy in a match for the Family Wrestling Entertainment promotion in New York, he subsequently renamed it the ICW World Heavyweight Championship.[116] Galloway defended the championship in Australia for the first time on 20 March, defeating Andy Phoenix at an Outback Championship Wrestling TV taping.[117] Galloway made his first defence in Scotland as "World Champion" by defeating Joe Coffey in the main-event of BarraMania on 28 March. On 5 April, Galloway made his first defense of the ICW title in England, defeating Doug Williams at a Revolution Pro Wrestling (RPW) show.[115] On 11 April, Galloway defeated Grado to retain the World Championship; after the match both men were attacked by returning former champion Jack Jester.[118] The following night, Galloway suffered his first loss in ICW since his return, where he and Grado lost to Jack Jester and Sabu after Grado was pinned.[119] On 18 April, Galloway defeated both Jack Jester and Grado in a triple threat match to retain his championship again, before having the championship stolen post-match by Sabu. The following night at "Alex Kidd in London" at KOKO, Galloway regained possession of the belt and retained his championship in an Elimination Three Way Dance against Sabu and Jack Jester.[115] Galloway finished the "Insane Entertainment Tour" by defeating Mikey Whiplash in the Main-Event of "Flawless Victory" on 2 May, to once again retain the ICW World Heavyweight Championship. On 16 October at a Maximum Wrestling show in Germany, Galloway successfully defended the ICW World Championship in a triple threat against Apu Singh and Chaos, in which Chaos' UEWA European Heavyweight Championship was also on the line.[120]

At Shug's Hoose Party 2, Galloway turned heel along with Jack Jester and ICW GM Red Lightning as they aligned to form 'The Black Label'. With Jester's help, he successfully defended the championship against Big Damo in the main event. Galloway successfully retained his World Championship against Rhino, Joey D and Kris Travis throughout the rest of the summer. As part of the "Road to Fear & Loathing" tour, Galloway made successful title defenses of the ICW title against Rampage Brown, Doug Williams, Matt Daly and Coach Trip. During the tour, Galloway also teamed with Black Label stablemate Jack Jester to challenge Polo Promotions for the ICW Tag Team Championships but were defeated following interference from Grado. On 15 November, Galloway lost the title against Grado at Fear & Loathing VIII.[121] Galloway returned to ICW in February 2016 for the UK & Ireland tour, scoring wins over Mark Coffey, Noam Dar and BT Gunn, but suffering a loss in a match against Chris Renfrew for the ICW World Heavyweight Championship.[115]

Galloway was out of action from August until November due to a back injury but appeared on ICW shows in non-wrestling roles to further his feud with Mark Dallas. On 19 November, Galloway announced his departure from ICW due to the severity of his injuries, reconciling with Mark Dallas before attacking Dallas and revealing it to have been a rouse.[122] It was announced on 1 February 2018 that Galloway would be inducted into the ICW Hall of Fame.[123]

Evolve (2014–2017)

On 8 August 2014, Galloway debuted for Evolve, defeating Chris Hero for the Evolve Championship.[124] His first loss in Evolve came at Evolve 33, in a Champion vs Champion match against the DGUSA Open The Freedom Gate champion Ricochet.[125] Galloway continued to defend the Evolve championship stateside against the likes of Caleb Konley, Stevie Richards, Devin Thomas, Jimmy Rave and Victor Sterling at independent events across the US and Rich Swann on Evolve iPPV at Evolve 34,[126] while also defending the championship internationally in Scotland against Kid Fite, Johnny Moss, Big Damo and Andy Wild, as well as in England, where he retained over reigning NWA World Tag Team Champion Davey Boy Smith Jr.[115][127] Following multiple international title defenses, Galloway renamed his title the "Evolve World Championship" on 9 January 2015.[128] Galloway made his first successful defense as World Champion the following night at Evolve 37, defeating Ricochet.[129] The international title defenses continued on 20 March 2015, where Galloway defeated Andy Phoenix in a Triple Championship match for Australian promotion Outback Championship Wrestling, retaining both the Evolve and ICW World Championships and winning Phoenix's OCW Heavyweight Championship.[117]

At Evolve 39, he retained the Evolve Championship over PJ Black.[130] At Mercury Rising 2015, Galloway defeated Johnny Gargano for the Dragon Gate USA Open the Freedom Gate Championship in a Title vs Title match, where he retained the Evolve Championship to become a double champion.[131] Galloway made a series of defenses of the Evolve and DGUSA titles between 4 and 6 April 2015 in Scotland, England and Northern Ireland, defeating Marty Scurll, Doug Williams and Joe Hendry, Tron and Luther Valentine in a Four Way.[115] At Evolve 43, Galloway made his first standalone defense of the DGUSA Open the Freedom Gate championship, defeating Biff Busick.[132] At Evolve 44, Galloway defeated Roderick Strong to retain the Evolve Championship, ending their feud.[133] On 10 July, Galloway lost both the Evolve World Championship and the Open the Freedom Gate Championship to Timothy Thatcher; at this point Galloway was the longest reigning Evolve champion in history and set the record for most successful title defenses.[134] At Evolve 46, after defeating Trent Barreta, he was attacked by The Premiere Athlete Brand, but afterwards, uncharacteristically attacked Andrea, threatened SoCal Val and assaulted a referee. Galloway was subsequently suspended from EVOLVE.[135] He returned at Evolve 51, where he defeated FIP World Heavyweight Champion Caleb Konley.[136] At Evolve 52, he received a rematch against Thatcher for the Evolve Championship but lost.[137]

Between 22 and 24 January 2016, Galloway and Johnny Gargano entered a three-day tournament to crown the inaugural Evolve Tag Team Champions. At Evolve 53, they defeated Catch Point (Drew Gulak and T. J. Perkins),[138] The Bravado Brothers at Evolve 54,[139] and in the finals at Evolve 55, they defeated Chris Hero and Tommy End to win the tournament and championship.[140] At Evolve 59, they lost the title to Drew Gulak and Tracy Williams; after the match, Galloway claimed that he spent his entire title reign as Evolve champion bringing legitimacy to Evolve, only for WWE and more specifically NXT to come and squash everything he did, while also claiming the company's working relationship with WWE was compromising independent wrestling. Galloway then turned on Gargano by attacking him and Ethan Page,[141] whom he defeated at Evolve 60.[142] Over the following months, Galloway aligned himself with other WWE stars, including Ethan Carter III.[143] They defeated Gargano and TJP in the street fight main event at Evolve 62 with help from Hero, who joined their group and claimed that Cody Rhodes would be joining.[144] At Evolve 63, Galloway defeated Page in an "Anything Goes" match.[145] At Evolve 64, a match between Galloway and Gulak was rescheduled as an Evolve Tag Team Championship main-event match between Catch Point and Galloway and the returning Chuck Taylor (now under the name "Dustin"), in which they won the titles, making Galloway the first ever two-time Evolve Tag Team Champion.[146] At Evolve 65, Galloway defeated Gargano.[147]

Dustin and Galloway made their first Evolve Tag Team Championship defense at Evolve 67 on 20 August 2016, teaming with EC3 against Fred Yehi, TJP and Ethan Page (replacement for Tracy Williams) in a no disqualification six man tag-team match, which they lost after EC3 was pinned, also resulting in a title change. Galloway also built a feud with former partner Cody Rhodes and veteran announcer Joey Styles, after they both refused his invitation to join his "crusade".[148] On 13 November, while Galloway was out with an injury, their replacement, Chris Hero, lost the Evolve Tag Team Championship. However, it was announced that, despite supposed champions Catch Point holding the physical belts, Evolve continued to recognize Galloway and Dustin as the Evolve Tag Team Champions.[149]

Professional wrestling style and persona

McIntyre uses a running single leg dropkick called the Claymore as his finisher.[5] The move was created accidentally during a match when McIntyre was attempting a big boot, but since the leather pants he was wearing were too tight, he had to kick up with the other leg to avoid ripping them.[320] McIntyre knocked himself out during the move; after the match, a road agent noted that if he could figure out how to use the move without killing himself, it would be great, so he continued to use it.[321] He began using a countdown upon the execution of the move during a house show, which stuck after fans participated in the countdown.[322] McIntyre also uses a double underhook DDT called the Future Shock (originally called the Scot Drop),[56] and a headbutt called the Glasgow Kiss.[323]

During his early years on the independent circuit, he developed a narcissistic character and used The One and Only as his theme song.[5] Shortly after his main roster debut in WWE, McIntyre was labeled “The Chosen One” by Vince McMahon, who believed he was a future world champion.[59] His character took a more comedic turn upon joining the 3MB faction in 2012 as he continuously lost matches.[324]
