• Real Reason Behind Drew McIntyre’s Injury Angle At WWE Day 1

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 has now 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.

According to PWInsider, McIntyre has been dealing with neck issues for the past several weeks and this injury angle was done to write him off TV, so he can get his neck checked by undergoing medical testing.

While everything is “up in the air” regarding McIntyre’s status, WWE Officials hope that he will be gone for only a short period of time.

Multiple people backstage in WWE noted how hard McIntyre has worked in the last few weeks. He also wrestled the most matches in WWE in 2021 (95 matches).

With Universal Champion Roman Reigns not working the last few Live Events due to to COVID-19, McIntyre took his place in the main event and worked two matches at these shows, first a tag team match with The Usos and then a stiff Street Fight in the main event against Sheamus.

One person noted that McIntyre “went down swinging” to a neck injury for the WWE.

We’ll keep you updated regarding McIntyre’s status.
