Drew McIntyre Prayed CM Punk Would Get Hurt And Miss WrestleMania 40

When CM Punk made a surprise return at Survivor Series, the Chicago crowd was fire. As for the wrestlers, especially Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre, they were furious.

It was one of those moments where we saw the real emotions of wrestlers. McIntyre left the ringside area before Punk even came-down the ramp.

During the Royal Rumble Match, Punk made it until the end before being tossed by Cody Rhodes. In the match, Punk tore his tricep again and will be out for about 8 months.

While talking to West Sport, Drew McIntyre took credit for hurting Punk and prayed for something like this to happen.

“When it comes to the injury and how I felt him coming into the company and leap-frogging superstars, trying to take spots at WrestleMania, particularly my spot at WrestleMania, I wasn’t going to let it happen,” said McIntyre. “I took him out and I wanted to let him know, ‘I prayed for this to happen.’” 

“The way people reacted was like a delayed reaction. ‘Did he just say that?’ I could feel it in the arena.” 

“The next line was, After the Rumble, when I got eliminated by you, I couldn’t sleep. I let myself down, I let the world down not winning the Rumble, but more specifically getting eliminated by Punk.” 

“The next day I found out he torn his tricep off the bone, and that night I slept like a baby and headed into RAW with a big smile on my face.

Punk confirmed the injury on RAW and McIntyre proceeded to inflict more damage. It is difficult to tell how much of McIntyre’s story is a shoot.
