At WrestleMania 39 Sunday, Drew McIntyre was pinned by Gunther in the Intercontinental Championship match, which also involved Sheamus.
After the match, McIntyre waved goodbye to the fans on Twitter.
McIntyre has been off WWE programming since then, because he reportedly got injured during this match.
As previously reported, 2023 is the final year of Drew’s current WWE contract and both sides haven’t agreed to a new deal yet.
PWInsider recently reported that WWE Officials want McIntyre back for Money In The Bank 2023, since he is one of the top wrestlers in the UK.
A meeting was held last week in WWE, to discuss return plans for McIntyre.
Word going on is that McIntyre wouldn’t agree to return to TV unless there’s a solid storyline laid out for him, as he doesn’t want to be on TV just for the sake of it.
In an update on Drew’s situation, he has been announced for his first WWE-related appearance since WrestleMania 39.
WWE announced that Drew will represent the company at the Special Olympics World Games this year. He’s going to serve as the Special Olympics Global Ambassador.
Also, SmackDown wrestler Ridge Holland said the following about McIntyre and his return during an interview with Cultaholic:
“He’s fine, Drew’s fine. Yeah, he is probably in the gym as we speak, lifting two cows. He is fine. Drew is good.
I don’t know for sure, I don’t know anything. I think whether it is a month from now, two months from now, or three months from now, you will see Drew McIntyre back in WWE.”
