Drew McIntyre is one of the highly talented professional wrestlers on the current WWE roster. The Scottish Warrior played a major role in the upliftment of WWE during the COVID-19 pandemic era. He carried the company solely on his shoulders when no major stars appeared for the show due to travel restrictions. He had two WWE Championship reigns during the time and made the worst year into one of the greatest years for him.

Although was the hero during the pandemic, he never got a chance to hold the championship in the company thereafter, especially in front of the live crowd. McIntyre after a long wait turned his career back into the top card placing himself among some of the best wrestlers in the company.

Drew recently challenged Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 40 and won the title to live his dream. However it didn’t last long as CM Punk’s attack made Priest loot the title with the Money in the Bank cash-in. McIntyre has now teased a CM Punk style exit from WWE, nearing his contract end.

Drew McIntyre on X/Twitter posted a picture of CM Punk giving a flying kiss, from Money in the Bank 2011. Punk won the WWE Championship on the final day of his contract and took the WWE Championship with him, in front of the home crowd.

It seems like McIntyre is teasing a similar exit with the World Championship at Clash at the Castle 2024, which is scheduled to be held in his hometown Glasgow, Scotland on June 15, 2024.

Drew McIntyre’s WWE status

Although McIntyre teases his exit as he hasn’t signed a new-deal, Dave Meltzer on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Newsletter says that WWE is expecting McIntyre will be re-signing a new contract with WWE, as he is advertised post contract expiration.

Dave Meltzer reports,

“Those in WWE expect Drew McIntyre is re-signing with WWE, seeing it as enough of a given he’s being advertised on shows post contract expiration. The feeling was that while he had talked of taking time off if not creatively fulfilled, that he very much is now and is seen as one of the company’s top full-time wrestlers with Rhodes and Rollins.”

It is also believed that WWE talents are less likely now to opt for AEW. Will WWE recreate CM Punk’s iconic championship exit with Drew McIntyre?
