Former WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre was shown seated ringside at last night’s NXT TakeOver: Orlando and WWE has announced that the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion has returned to the company and has officially joined their developmental brand, NXT.
Below is what WWE posted:
“Former WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre has returned with his eye locked firmly on the NXT Championship.
In the midst of NXT TakeOver: Orlando, rumors instantly began to circulate when the “Sinister Scotsman” was spotted watching the live WWE Network event very closely from his seat in the capacity crowd. But speculation instantly dissipated when McIntyre revealed to ESPN that he has signed as NXT’s newest Superstar. This huge news immediately conjures thoughts of dream showdowns between the hard-hitting McIntyre and the NXT roster’s elite. And judging by the reaction of the NXT Universe when he was shown donning a sly smile in attendance, fans were certainly excited by the prospect of him stepping through the yellow ropes very soon.”
