• Backstage News On Drew McIntyre’s Royal Rumble 2022 & WrestleMania 38 Status
At the WWE Day 1 PPV, Drew McIntyre defeated Madcap Moss in a singles match.
McIntyre got interviewed backstage later on during the show and he got brutally assaulted by Happy Corbin and Madcap.
They hurt his neck by wrapping a steel chair around it and then Corbin hit the chair with a piece of Scaffolding.
WWE issued the following storyline update on McIntyre:
“Drew McIntyre suffered a cervical neck strain with severe contusions.
Upon further evaluation by medical staff he will have a follow-up with an orthopedic cervical specialist.”
While McIntyre isn’t dealing with the exact above mentioned injury, but he is dealing with legitimate neck issues, which is why he was written off WWE programming for the time being.
According to the Wrestling Observer, McIntyre taking time off was necessary, otherwise it could’ve resulted in him needing a major neck surgery.
McIntyre recently underwent medical tests and he will miss the Royal Rumble 2022 PPV on January 29.
However, he is expected to return in time for WrestleMania 38 on April 2nd & 3rd.
