Drew McIntyre vows to win WWE title


Former NXT Champion Drew McIntyre has vowed to become the first Scottish WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

McIntyre, who is currently recovering from a torn-bicep injury sustained during his NXT TakeOver: WarGames title match against Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas in November, made the promise after being inducted into the Insane Championship Wrestling Hall of Fame this week.

The Scot, who travelled to his native homeland for the ceremony, said: “I promise, I will be not just the first UK, not just the first British, but the first Scottish-born WWE World Heavyweight Champion.”

It has been almost a year since McIntyre returned for his second spell in the WWE and he’s made a big impact in their developmental territory NXT, winning the NXT Championship at TakeOver: Brooklyn III in August.

During his first stint with the WWE, the 32-year-old Scottish heavyweight also enjoyed stints as Intercontinental Champion and shared the Tag Team titles with Cody Rhodes.
