After controversially losing the World Heavyweight Title at WrestleMania XL, Drew McIntyre had another bad news waiting for him. According to reports, he suffered a hyperextension elbow injury during his match against Seth Rollins and continued to work through it. Now, he addressed his current situation through a message on social media.

The Scottish Warrior took to X and answered the burning question of why he didn’t just leave after winning the title. Drew McIntyre stated that he wanted to enjoy that moment to the fullest until CM Punk ruined it. He further added that the reports of him working through an injury are also true, as he took a shot at The Second City Saint by calling him a coward. 

He completed his dream after winning the world title on the biggest stage after defeating Seth Rollins at WrestleMania XL. However, his celebrations were short-lived, as Damian Priest cashed in his MITB contract and became the new world champion. McIntyre’s reign only lasted 5 minutes and 46 seconds, thanks to a distraction from Punk.

So for those who ask, why didn't I just leave? Just remember, by your own logic, you're not allowed to enjoy the moment. And, oh yeah, the internet is telling the truth; I've said it in interviews already. I am hurt, but I keep pushing through. So, I am not a pathetic, coward little b**ch like CM Punk.

McIntyre is not advertised for Backlash, so he will likely be sidelined due to an injury. Despite the rumors of his contract expiration, he should be available for the 2024 Clash at the Castle PLE in June in his home country of Scotland.
