WWE fans may be in for a shock as rumors are swirling that top star Drew McIntyre may be leaving the company if they don’t come to terms on a new deal soon. According to a report by PWInsider, McIntyre’s current contract is in its final year, meaning this could be his last WrestleMania with WWE.
McIntyre, who was once dubbed the “Chosen One” by Vince McMahon, had a less-than-stellar first run with the company before leaving and returning in 2015. During the height of the pandemic, he became one of the most valuable players in the WWE, making it all the more important for the company to retain him.
If WWE fails to keep McIntyre on board, it could be a major loss for the company, but it would undoubtedly open up new opportunities for the wrestler. Companies like AEW and NJPW would likely be quick to reach out to him, eager to add a top talent to their roster.
McIntyre’s potential departure comes at a time when WWE has been struggling to retain top stars, with a number of wrestlers choosing to leave for other promotions in recent years.
It remains to be seen what the future holds for McIntyre and WWE, but fans will be eagerly watching tomorrow night at WrestleMania as McIntyre and Sheamus challenge for Gunther’s Intercontinental Title in a Triple Threat Match.
