There is a good chance Drew McIntyre leaves WWE when his current contract expires. And, former Tough Enough winner Sara Lee’s death has been ruled a suicide.
Good Chance Drew McIntyre Leaves WWE
In the not too distant future, there is a good chance Drew McIntyre leaves WWE. At the moment, McIntyre remains off TV but should be back within a few weeks.
In the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, they discussed the latest changes in WWE following the draft. They continued how there is a good chance Drew McIntyre leaves WWE towards the end of the year.
“McIntyre, right now, is working with the idea there’s a good chance he’s finishing up,” the report stated. “He could do a big program for the title as a challenger and finally leave.”
The report noted how WWE could use Randy Orton, Brock Lesnar and Omos to fill the void if McIntyre does exit. Yes, they even mentioned Omos.
McIntyre became one of the youngest superstars to join the WWE roster in 2009. He was called the future of the company by other than Vince McMahon.
Initially, he was given a long run as Intercontinental Champion. When that push ended, McIntyre did little until 2012.
At that point, he was paired with Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal to form 3MB. While the stable was never sent into title contention, they were well received by fans.
Then, in 2014, McIntyre’s four year run on the main roster ended as he was released. Departing from WWE was the best thing for him.
He toured around the world, before signing with Impact Wrestling. During his stint, he won the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
After making great strides inside the ring, he returned to WWE in 2017 as part of NXT. He held the NXT Championship for just over three months before dropping it and taking a break due to a torn bicep.
In 2018, McIntyre returned to the main roster and teamed with Dolph Ziggler. He stayed close to the top of the title picture until getting a huge push in early 2020.
McIntyre won the Royal Rumble Match, where he eliminated Lesnar to a huge ovation. Months later, McIntyre won his first WWE Championship in the main event of WrestleMania 36 by pinning Lesnar.
Unfortunately, his title reign started just as pandemic arrived. So, there were no fans present for the biggest moment in McIntyre’s career. He would win the same title again, but again no fans were there to witness it.
At Clash At The Castle, McIntyre looked for that moment once again as he challenged Roman Reigns. This time, McIntyre was unable to grasp the gold.
Lately, he has been teaming and feuding with the likes of Sheamus and GUNTHER. At WrestleMania 39, all three competed in a brutal contest for the Intercontinental Championship.
The match received praise from fans and wrestlers. GUNTHER left with his title and McIntyre has not returned to WWE TV. Although, he was just sent to RAW via the draft.
So, what are your thought that there is a good chance Drew McIntyre leaves WWE when his current deal ends?
