In a surprising turn of WWE news, one of the top stars in the company, Drew McIntyre, has not yet re-signed with the company. As the wrestling world buzzes with speculation, let’s delve into the details surrounding this development.

Drew McIntyre, a former WWE Champion, has been a pivotal figure in the wrestling industry over the past few years. His current contract with WWE is nearing its end.

Originally, McIntyre’s contract was set to conclude by the end of this year. However, due to unforeseen circumstances such as injuries and other absences, WWE extended his contract through April.

This means that while there’s still some time left on his contract, the clock is ticking.

Negotiations Between McIntyre and WWE

The two parties, Drew McIntyre and WWE are reportedly still in discussions regarding the terms of a potential new contract.

The primary obstacle seems to be financial. McIntyre has a specific figure in mind, and as of now, WWE hasn’t met that expectation. Wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer highlighted on Wrestling Observer Radio that McIntyre isn’t looking to leave WWE; it’s essentially a matter of agreeing on the right number.

WWE News: McIntyre’s Current Endeavours

Despite the uncertainty surrounding his contract, McIntyre remains active in WWE storylines. He’s set to challenge Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship at the upcoming WWE Crown Jewel event on November 4.

Additionally, McIntyre is undergoing a character transformation, with hints of a heel turn. This transition faced a minor setback when WWE released his temporary tag team partner, Matt Riddle, last month.

Both McIntyre and Rollins have made it clear that they won’t be seeking any external assistance during their Crown Jewel match, so it should be a straight one-on-one match.

The Future for Drew McIntyre

While the future remains uncertain, fans and industry insiders alike are keenly observing the situation. McIntyre’s contributions to WWE are undeniable, and his departure would undoubtedly leave a void.

However, the wrestling business is unpredictable, and anything can happen. We’ll be sure to keep an eye out for any updates regarding McIntyre’s status with WWE.
