According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it is probably true that Drew McIntyre will re-sign with the Stamford-based company. As such, he’s being advertised for the premium live events after his current contract was set to expire. At first, The Scottish Warrior thought about taking time off to be with his family, if not given proper creative freedom. 

However, that isn’t the case now, as McIntyre is seen as one of the most important superstars in WWE. Given his position, it is less likely that he will join the Jacksonville-based company. He recently won the World Heavyweight Championship by defeating Seth Rollins at WrestleMania XL. However, due to a physical altercation with CM Punk, Damian Priest took advantage and snatched the title away from him

The Best in the World didn’t stop there, as one night later on Raw, he cost McIntyre a title opportunity by distracting him. Fans are eagerly awaiting Punk’s in-ring return and his face-off against McIntyre.

The Scottish Warrior took to X and shared an iconic picture of CM Punk blowing a goodbye kiss to Vince McMahon. The picture was taken after Punk defeated John Cena and fled with the title in front of the former WWE Chairman’s eyes at Money in the Bank 2011.

Meanwhile, McIntyre continued to berate The Second City Saint for his inability to perform due to an injury. The two superstars will probably lock horns when Punk fully recovers from his torn triceps injury.
