Drew McIntyre is currently thriving in his role as a heel in recent months and has shifted his focus to CM Punk, who had to abandon his WrestleMania 40 aspirations due to injury. McIntyre, known for his sharp wit, has chosen to mock Punk once again in a brutal manner.
As reported earlier, CM Punk sustained a triceps injury during the Royal Rumble match, raising concerns about his availability for WrestleMania 40. Fans expressed worry that he might miss out on what could be a significant opportunity for him.
Regrettably, the concern became a reality as CM Punk confirmed on Monday Night RAW that he was genuinely injured, dashing any hopes of him headlining WrestleMania 40. This led to Drew McIntyre brutally trolling him after crushing his WrestleMania 40 dreams as well.
In the latest meme posted on January 31, Drew McIntyre tapped into his inner Meek Mill and alluded to the song ‘Dreams & Nightmares,’ stating that he used to pray for times like this. In this context, “times like this” is a reference to CM Punk’s injury, something that he already mentioned in his promo on Monday Night RAW.
Drew McIntyre has additional plans to live out CM Punk’s dream. Whether he emerges victorious in the Men’s Elimination Chamber match and secures his spot at WrestleMania 40 remains to be seen. However, if he does, it would serve as the ultimate burn to CM Punk.
