• Why Taking Time Off Is Necessary For Drew McIntyre Right Now
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:
“Legitimately, McIntyre’s neck has been bothering him for months and if he kept going he was on the way to major surgery.
As of a few days ago, the plan was for McIntyre to have the neck looked at extensively over the next week. There’s really nothing more known until it’s fully examined.
The hope is that it’s not bad and he can come back soon, at least by Mania, and that he won’t need surgery which will put him out for months. But right now nobody knows.
From a timing standpoint it wasn’t good because SmackDown has no other full-time top face.”

• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Veteran Sniper (Real name: Luc Poirier) celebrates his 60th birthday today.
Most of us remember Poirier as Sniper, who was a member of the World Wrestling Federation faction ‘The Truth Commission’ in 1997 & 1998, but he was also a pretty big star in Europe, where he was known as Rambo.
While he didn’t achieve much success, if any at all, during his WWF days, Rambo did become a 4-time CWA World Heavyweight Champion in AWA Legend Otto Wanz’s Catch Wrestling Association, which used to be Europe’s biggest promotion back in the day.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SNIPER!
