Former WWE superstar Drew McIntyre will showcase his exciting brand of wrestling in Belfast this weekend in one of his first appearances since leaving the company.

Now using his real name Drew Galloway, the Scottish star will compete in the main event of Pro Wrestling Ulster's PWU Live! Super Show at the Europa Hotel tomorrow evening.

The former WWE Intercontinental and Tag Team champion will battle for the PWU Championship in a Triple Threat match, pitting his experience and nous against reigning champion 'Limited Edition' JDP and Irish Junior Heavyweight champion Tucker.

PWU co-owner Daniel Patton said: "Fans can expect a bit of everything. We have a wide range of title matches in a programme of top-class wrestling. It's set to be a great night for fans of all ages.

"Drew has just been released from the WWE and in my opinion wasn't used to the best of his ability. The owner of the WWE called him 'The Chosen One' when he made his breakthrough so we're extremely happy to have him."

The headline event is supported by a host of undercard bouts, including the climax to the £5000 Platinum Ticket Tournament, the winner of which will earn a title shot against former WWE Developmental star Tron.
