While Drew McIntyre is from Ayr, 40 miles away, Glasgow has definitely adopted the Scottish Superstar as one of their own – and that tie only further tightened upon McIntyre’s return as he was greeted by the Lord Provost.
Having spent two years being unable to visit his home country, McIntyre’s return to Glasgow was sure to be action-packed before he even hit the Hydro! Drew McIntyre rocked up to a media event, which you’ll be able to catch in full via Inside The Ropes’ YouTube Channel very soon, wearing a very fashionable scarf that evoked thoughts of his dropped Runway Man character. However, as he told everyone, he had just been gifted it by Glasgow’s civic head.
Shortly before, McIntyre boarded an open top bus as he toured Claymore Country, and parked up outside Glasgow City Chambers for a meeting with the Lord Provost, Philip Braat, with the pair trading gifts. The two-time WWE Champion gifted a WWE Championship to the city which helped prepare him to triumph on a global stage. Meanwhile, The Scottish Warrior was given a Glasgow tartan scarf and a quaich, which is a traditional two handed drinking cup.
Later on in the evening, McIntyre’s Scottish roots were prominent as he celebrated with Glasgow’s own soft drink – Irn-Bru! Following his Glasgow Street Fight with Jinder Mahal, McIntyre was joined by Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, Dominik and Rey Mysterio, the Street Profits, Shinsuke Nakamura, Rick Boogs and Bianca Belair to say goodbye to Glasgow in style as they opened a can of whoop-ass on Happy Corbin, and some can’s of Irn-Bru.
WWE Live returns to the UK in November. More information about that tour is available here.
