There is no doubt that Drew McIntyre is one of the top Superstars in WWE, and he certainly has a lot of passion for the pro wrestling business. He is a former two-time WWE Champion and was the face of the company during the pandemic era as the WWE Champion. A recent neck injury took him out of action, but he used John Cena’s approach to rehab that injury in rabid fashion.
The Scottish Warrior was said to be rehabbing as hard as John Cena in order to make his return before WrestleMania 38 after suffering neck injuries. Despite this, he made his return at the Royal Rumble on January 29th to the shock of fans everywhere around the world.
McIntyre is still healing and is not wrestling at 100%, which is why WWE decided to lighten up McIntyre’s load ahead of WrestleMania 38. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Drew McIntyre is scheduled to work this week’s WWE live events in spite of the company’s cautious approach when it comes to making sure he is healthy.
Originally the plan was for McIntyre to only work PPVs and do safe matches on TV leading to Mania, but for this weekend’s house shows on 2/26 in Youngstown, OH and 2/27 in Rochester, NY, the schedule is Big E & Kingston & McIntyre vs. Reigns & Usos on top. They are also advertising Reigns vs. McIntyre in title matches at some of the TV tapings but they usually don’t do the matches advertised.
Drew McIntyre recently defeated Madcap Moss at WWE Elimination Chamber as well. We will have to wait and see what the company has in store for McIntyre as we head towards WrestleMania 38.
