ICW Hall Of Fame First Inductee
Scott Reid


Standing at 6ft 1 and weighting in at 22st Drew McDonald first got into wrestling when friend of his who ran a school in Perth for wayward children was promoting a wrestling show to make funds for the school. Ian Law who held a splinter claim to the British Middleweight Championship at the time (the main lineage being held by Brian 'Goldbelt' Maxine) was helping his friend to run the show. One of the wrestlers had got himself seriously injured two weeks out from the show and his friend asked McDonald if he would stand in for the missing man, like nearly everyone, McDonald was convinced that wrestling was all show and that anyone could do it, but McDonald was in for a shock, he had a two-week crash course before first pro match against Wild Angus, The match lasted 5 rounds with Angus beating McDonald by the final bell.

McDonald stayed in Scotland wrestling for another year after that first match, in April 1984 he went down to England to work for Joint Promotions; the biggest promoters at that time (in the United Kingdom).

McDonald at one point would join the army at the Guards Depot at Pirbright where he joined with the Scots Guards. During his time there he would met Dave Taylor, who had enlisted in the same regiment as McDonald, as a bandsman on the same day.

McDonald would wrestle for all the top promotions in the UK as well as traveling all over the world, wrestling for promotions like Canada's Stampede Wrestling under the name Ben Doon McDonald. Drew also wrestled for WCW on UK tours as well as working behind the scenes at WWE.
