Former WWE NXT Champion Drew McIntyre spoke with The Mirror on his induction into Insane Championship Wrestling’s Hall of Fame tonight at the ICW Fight Club event.
I’m friends obviously with Mark Dallas, the promoter, and a couple of the lads were with him and they just messaged me to let me know. THey said ‘we’re going to put you into the Hall of Fame at the upcoming Fight Club tapings, the biggest one ever, and we just want to recognize what you’ve done for the company and done for Scottish wrestling.’ It really meant the world to me,. I didn’t know what to say. I’ve won a lot of titles and they were very big moments, but this is personally very special to me.
McIntyre also mentioned Triple H, and how the the Game personally gave McIntyre permission to accept his induction.
After they actually sent it I contacted Triple H and told him about it, and he personally endorsed me going. The reason I’m going is because Triple H believes in ICW and was very happy for me.
Receiving this opportunity, he told me, ‘You should go there and be there in person.’ That’s the reason I’m going to be there. To go there and be in person, when initially it was just going to be done on the show as a little tribute without me there, really does mean the world.
I’m going to be going home, in my home company and with all my friends on the show and in the crowd, with my family there. You can’t buy that kind of stuff.
