Why Drew McIntyre Was Not At RAW Tonight

Drew McIntyre posted the following on his Twitter, which explains why he wasn't at RAW tonight:

For those who know me, they are aware I'm not the most emotional person in the world but this is something that as private as it is I want to share with the world because I am so lucky and proud. My mother is currently very ill and if you have the time please send a prayer her way, she has battled through ataxia since her early 20s being told she would never have children to raising my brother and I to the men we are today. She has overcame so many obstacles thrown her way over her life not selling the pain for one moment putting everyone else first including battling through chemo and radiotherapy.

Sitting with her now I can still see fight in her eyes, she is Angela Galloway, my mother and my hero. I wrote this to her when she got sick, again please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

My Hero

Me hero isn't a singer, nor on tv.

My hero dosent play sports or rally to make the world a better place.

My hero is a warrior, as strong as Atlas and as brave as a soldier in the trenches.

My hero has looked at adversity their entire life and overcame with no doubt in their mind,
NEVER taking heed of others opinions, powering through when others would have simply given up.

My hero inspires me when I think I can't handle what life throws at me.

My hero is my mum and no matter where I travel or who I meet there isn't a person on earth like her
