Drew McIntyre is the latest guest on Chris Jericho's Talk Is Jericho podcast. Drew is now using his real name Drew Galloway. McIntyre noted that he was surprised by his release. He said, "To say it was a surprise was a very accurate statement." He said that he had zero indication that he would be let go. Drew said that Mark Carrano (he made the phone call) was also surprised.
Drew talked about his run with 3MB and he said that they were put together because Vince McMahon wanted to see how he could work as a babyface. He wrestled Jinder Mahal that day. He said that the crowd was behind him during the match but the next day Vince decided that Heath Slater (doing the One Man Band gimmick at the time) needed a band so he was put into the group. Drew noted that he suffered a broken wrist several months before that and didn't tell anyone and needed surgery so that killed 3MB from the beginning.
Drew also said that Vince was receptive for ideas to 3MB but nothing came out of it because he was injured and by the time he returned the whole thing was shot.
