Drew McIntyre missed both Monday Night Raw and the live SmackDown special this past week for family reasons. It turns out, his mother passed away.
We knew Drew McIntyre had missed both Monday Night Raw and the live SmackDown special this past week to be with his mother dealing with a family issue.
As it turns out, it was much worse than that.
Reporting as much on his Twitter account, McIntyre says his mother has passed away.
"Angela Anne Galloway passed away on Sat 3rd of November 2012 with her family by her side, no words were needed everything spoken through eye contact. We opened our lives and hearts to world to share Mum and the kind of person and inspiration she was as we are so proud of all she had fought and accomplished and if she could inspire just one person it was worth it... the response was simply overwhelming for our family. The night before she passed hundreds and thousands of people were thinking and praying for her and that was unbelievable to know that so many people knew Angela Galloway.
"I wish we could thank everyone individually as everyones words have touched us all. From my WWE family, my brothers and sisters and even those we don't know, but we were all connected through the thoughts and prayers for her which were simply unreal. We say goodbye tomorrow and its going to one big celebration with Mums request of no black, we re getting colourful."
We here at Cageside Seats would like to express our deepest condolences to McIntyre and his entire family while they go through this difficult time.
