With a premium live event just a week away, WWE hoping for big Bank return is a real thing.
Now, Money In The Bank shows are known for surprises.
Surprise winners, surprise cash-ins, and so on and so forth.
WWE hoping for a big Bank return for the 2023 show would be just the latest surprise.
Whether it happens or not remains to be seen.
So, who is the possible arrival? It’s a name that’s been rumored, and we have not seen him in quite a while.
If you hadn’t guessed, this is all about Drew McIntyre.
WWE Hoping For Big Bank Return
We basically haven’t seen Drew since WrestleMania. We’ve heard plenty of whispers about him being unhappy with his contract situation, with that set to expire by year’s end.
To that point, it’s been noted that he wouldn’t just come back to play out the string…coming back would seem to hinge on both good creative plans, and a resolution to his contract.
And all the while, WWE has been hoping for him to show up in London. Fans surely have too.
Per the Wrestling Observer…it could happen.
Whether we get it or not remains to be seen, but there isn’t much more to wait.
For what it’s worth, I’d argue that Drew is still on good terms with WWE and it’s fans.
He recently served as the big WWE ambassador for the 2023 Special Olympics World Games in Berlin.
While that might not seem like a big deal to some…I know the partnership has meant a lot to WWE, and if someone is nearing an exit, it seems like an honor that would not be given to him or her.
Could I be wrong there? Absolutely. After all, McIntyre has been one of the consummate professionals in WWE in recent years, especially as he was a prominent face of the Thunderdome era.
If he shakes free, it seems likely AEW would be interested…but a return next week might end those hopes for Tony Khan.
