It was during this week’s SmackDown Eve that WWE released a handful of their talents. One of them was Drew McIntyre‘s longtime friend and former 3MB stablemate, Jinder Mahal. As a result, McIntyre, seemingly upset at Mahal’s fate, took to X. The Scot posted a picture of his time with The Modern Day Maharaja when they were an on-screen alliance.

Drew McIntyre also wrote how they, referring to themselves, proved their worth in the past. And now, it’s time to emulate it again. Both men have always enjoyed each other’s company. Not only while working in tandem, but also when they were pitted to dance on The Biggest Party of Summer in 2021. At the event, SummerSlam, The Scottish Warrior ousted the 37-year-old without any hiccups.

Earlier this year, Jinder picked up some steam once again. He was involved in a segment with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, where things got physical at the end. Then, the Indo-Canadian wrestler was handed a world title shot against Seth Rollins. In the same week, Mahal ran into controversy with AEW CEO Tony Khan.

Despite a strong start to 2024, Jinder Mahal couldn’t make it to WrestleMania XL. And eventually, he ended up on the chopping block, with what was internally listed as a budget cut. McIntyre may continue mourning for Mahal but it would be interesting to see where does the latter land next. Per PWInsider, there’s a running joke among WWE talent, a few of them, that by this summer, Mahal will be feuding with Tony Khan while being signed to AEW.

In a new development courtesy of PWInsider, it has been revealed that while wrestling Seth Rollins at The Showcase of the Immortals, the Iyre-born wrestler suffered a badly hyperextended elbow. Despite the injury, McIntyre’s been working through it. He recently bottled up on an opportunity to face Priest for the title at Backlash.

Also, his contractual status with WWE has now been cleared. Drew’s remaining dates with the company are due to be up in late May. But interestingly, he’s been advertised for Clash at the Castle PLE in Scotland, on June 15. People within WWE are hopeful of re-signing the self-proclaimed DM Hunk imminently.
