How They Can Change : Drew McIntyre

I'm a new face to this site, but I've been lurking. I decided, like so many before me, to start my own 'blog post series' and have some fun.
So, this series I call "How They Can Change" and will center around certain superstars, particularly ones who are so far in the dark or in jobber-land they're forgotten. This is my 'creative thoughts' on how they can become more relevant, create a new identity or get some of their former glory back.
First on the list is someone who I appreciated when he first showed up. He had talent, a semi-unique look and attitude.
Inspired by MikeyA's post "Gimmick Transitions: Better or Worse part 1" I got an idea how Drew could go from "air guitar" to "superstar". Wouldn't be too hard, really.
Drew, with 3MB, enter the ring. They do their air guitar stupidity. Drew is set to job to another wrestler. Doesn't matter who, he's always jobbing.
During the match, Drew is actually doing well. However, for God knows why, Heath and Jinder jump in to 'help', costing Drew the match. He's frustrated.
Next week, Heath is in a match - jobbing. Jinder and Drew jump in to help but in the chaos Drew get's hit but Jinder or Heath. Heath loses, naturally. Drew is angry and storms off.
Following week, 3MB is in the ring and Drew is less than ecstatic. Heath and Jinder are all goofball "rock star" but Drew just walks around. Heath and Jinder approach him wanting to know what's going on and a heated debate ensues.
Jinder pushes Drew.
Drew boots Jinder in the face.
Heath rushes Drew, who answers with a future shock out of no where.
Drew drops down and screams in an unconscious Heath's face "I'M THE CHOSEN ONE!"
This sparks a small rivalry between "Two Man Band" and Drew McIntyre. I would also look to add a partner and they could form a tag team for this feud. Someone like Justin Gabrial would fit. I would recommend a non-American to compliment Drew's Scottish heritage. They could call themselves "The Future" with Drew being "The Chosen One" and Justin could take on a dark horse, underdog persona.
And that, ladies and gent, is one possible way for Dew McIntyre to recover. Doesn't have to be title shot.
