During the Payback kickoff show, Charly Caruso provided an update on Drew McIntyre. She said that WWE medical staff were fearful that McIntyre fractured his skull after taking a punt from The Viper. There was potential bleeding of the brain as well.

The medics were also concerned that his injuries could be “career-threatening.”

This is a kayfabe injury, but it wrote the WWE Champion out of the storyline. We’ll have to see how long it takes him to return. Keith Lee will be fighting for him as he takes on Randy Orton at Payback.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
