Drew McIntyre acknowledges WWE rumors, hints at some truth

Drew McIntyre's surprising return to WWE at Money In The Bank in London, England, marked the end of his months-long hiatus. During his absence, the Scottish star had been a part of a thrilling Intercontinental Championship match at WrestleMania 39 alongside Sheamus and GUNTHER.

Unfortunately, his loss in that match led to his mysterious disappearance from the WWE scene. Reports began circulating, speculating on the reasons behind McIntyre's absence. It was rumored that aside from nursing nagging injuries, he was also embroiled in a dispute with the company over his creative direction and financial matters, prompting negotiations for a new contract.

His unexpected re-emergence on WWE television quells some of these rumors. Still, the details surrounding his contract status remained uncertain, leaving fans wondering if he had secured an extension beyond the beginning of 2024.

He acknowledged that the speculations and headlines surrounding him during his hiatus were intriguing, with various rumors circulating online.
