Is Drew McIntyre on his way out of WWE? Speculation is running rampant about the future of the former WWE Champion, as rumors suggest his contract with the company may be ending next year. Despite ongoing negotiations, a new agreement has yet to be reached, possibly resulting in McIntyre leaving WWE once his contract expires.
Adding to the uncertainty, the former Intercontinental Champion has yet to make a TV appearance since Wrestlemania 39, fueling concerns about his continued involvement with the organization. Fans have noticed that McIntyre recently removed his profile picture from his Twitter account and erased all WWE-related content from his bio, further hinting at a potential departure.
Drew McIntyre WWE Journey
Growing up as a WWE fan, McIntyre joined the company in 2007 and quickly debuted on television.
Initially dubbed "The Chosen One," his early tenure with WWE was somewhat lackluster, culminating in his release in 2014. However, after establishing himself in other wrestling promotions, WWE took notice and brought McIntyre back into the fold in 2017, assigning him to their NXT brand.
McIntyre's primary roster return in 2018 marked the beginning of his ascent to stardom. By 2020, he had become the face of the Raw brand, winning the Royal Rumble and eliminating Brock Lesnar along the way. He later headlined night 2 of Wrestlemania 36, defeating Lesnar to claim the WWE Championship in a match held without spectators due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Although McIntyre only lost the title once in 2020, his fortunes began to change in 2021. At Elimination Chamber, The Miz cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase to dethrone McIntyre, who has not held any titles since. An anticipated victory over Roman Reigns at Clash at the Castle ended in a surprising defeat, and McIntyre has been absent from the championship scene ever since.
As fans eagerly await official word on McIntyre's WWE future, his recent social media activity has raised eyebrows. If the wrestling powerhouse parted ways with the company, it would be a significant loss for WWE and a major opportunity for competing promotions.
