While many fellow 15-year-olds were worried about sitting at the “popular table” at lunchtime, Drew McIntyre was already training to become a WWE Superstar. At the young age of 22, McIntyre had skyrocketed from the independent scene to the big show, WWE contract in hand.From the get-go, McIntyre was determined to live up to the hype. Before even taking part in a single match, Drew turned SmackDown upside down in 2009 by launching a series of unrelenting attacks on more established Superstars, starting with R-Truth and Charlie Haas. The ruthless aggression paid dividends when he was personally awarded a SmackDown contract by Mr. McMahon, who called him a “future World Champion.”
Armed with his aptly named Future Shock DDT, McIntyre continued to impress with a big win over John Morrison at WWE TLC 2009 to capture the Intercontinental Championship, and managed to hold the title for more than five months. Hungry for more accolades, “The Sinister Scotsman” partnered with Cody Rhodes at Night of Champions 2010 to claim the WWE Tag Team Championship in a frenzied Tag Team Turmoil Match.
Drew’s alliance with Rhodes didn’t last long, and McIntyre found his WWE career stagnating. SmackDown General Manager Teddy Long eventually gave McIntyre an ultimatum: win or you’re fired. McIntyre did not succeed in gaining victory and was booted from the blue brand. Then–Raw GM John Laurinaitis quickly snatched McIntyre up to join his WrestleMania XXVIII team. McIntyre and Team Johnny defeated Long’s team, giving Laurinaitis full control of Raw and SmackDown.
Since WrestleMania, McIntyre has found a common bond with fellow Superstars Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal. The three sneak attacked Brodus Clay on the Sept. 21 edition of SmackDown, leaving The Funkasaurus wondering what just hit him. McIntyre and his pals continued their attacks in the following weeks, often attacking Santino Marella, before busting out in an impromptu air guitar performance. The trio re-introduced themselves as 3MB on the Oct. 16 Raw from Nashville, Tenn. Sporting leather jackets and denim, McIntyre and company tried to take over the stage at a local country music bar, only to be kicked out before they could rock the house.Now, McIntyre and his bandmates are focused on winning the 2013 Royal Rumble Match. 3MB’s cockiness has landed them in matches with several of their opponents in the over-the-top-rope battle, including Sheamus and Randy Orton. The rock ‘n’ rollers shocked The Celtic Warrior, using their three-on-one advantage to help Heath Slater win an Over-The-Top-Rope Challenge on Raw. Can 3MB replicate their success on Jan. 27?
Declaring they “are music,” what does 3MB have planned for the next stop on their world tour?
