Most Noticeable Return: Drew McIntyre

This week’s most noticeable return was Drew McIntyre. His last main roster tenure lasted from 2009 until his release in 2014. He returned to WWE in 2017 and was signed to NXT, where he held the NXT Championship once before losing it to Andrade “Cien” Almas at NXT TakeOver: WarGames. He made his return this past Monday on Raw as part of the Superstar Shake-Up, aligning himself with another pickup, Dolph Ziggler, establishing himself as a heel in the process. Drew’s return sets up a big question: can Drew achieve the success he gained in NXT while on the main roster?
