DREW MCINTYRE made history as he defeated Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36 to become the first-ever British WWE Champion.
The Scottish Terminator survived a series of F-5s from the Beast Incarnate to upset the odds and claim the gold.
The 34-year-old – from Ayr – finally fulfilled his destiny and Vince McMahon’s prediction as being “The Chosen One” after a short but brutal match with the ex-UFC king.
McIntyre was on the back foot from the opening bell as Lesnar began pounding him early.
He ate German Suplexes and two F-5s but managed to kick out.
The champ then hit a third F-5 and looked certain to claim the victory only for the Scotsman to kick out again.
Paul Heyman yelled encouragement to his man Lesnar from ringside, saying: “He’s good, he’s really good, hit him again! Keep doing it all night long! He can’t keep kicking out.”
Lesnar looked like he was having fun now as he picked up the challenger from the mat.
But suddenly McIntyre exploded into life and hit a Claymore Kick.
He then landed another as the Beast began to rock and finally he landed a third.
McIntyre went for the pin and the wounded Beast had no fight left to kick out as the party began north of the border.
It caps a phenomenal journey for McIntyre and his rollercoaster career.
He was released from WWE back in June 2014 and even watched WrestleMania 31 in a nightclub back home in Glasgow.
But after rebuilding his reputation on the independent scene, he returned to WWE in 2017 as part of their NXT brand before moving back up to the main roster a year later.
