Drew McIntyre was pulled from WWE SmackDown this week, and no reason was given. He was also taken off an appearance at a Cricket Wireless Store, so GUNTHER had to fill in for him. We have an update on McIntyre, and his absence has nothing to do with his contract situation.

Drew McIntyre is in an interesting situation with WWE right now, as his contract continues ticking down. Recent reports about his status say that discussions haven’t even started yet, but they also have until the end of the year. His absence from SmackDown didn’t involve that situation, because McIntyre is injured.

Ringside News has confirmed that Drew McIntyre is injured. The severity of McIntyre’s injury is not known at this time.

Drew McIntyre competed in a brutal contest at WrestleMania Sunday against GUNTHER and Sheamus for the Intercontinental Title. GUNTHER retailed his title in that match, but it seems that Drew McIntyre didn’t leave the situation unscathed.


We will work to find out more information. At this time, it appears that the Scottish Warrior is out of action with this physical issue. We’re hoping for the best, because this time off was not a planned absence.

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.
