Further details have emerged regarding Drew McIntyre’s contract status with WWE following last week’s report indicating his pending re-signing with the company.

As previously noted, McIntyre’s contract extension was initially slated to expire before WrestleMania, but additional time was allocated, pushing the deadline further. However, recent insights from Fightful Select reveal that McIntyre’s contract is set to conclude before June, placing him in a potentially pivotal position as negotiations continue.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding his contractual future, sources within WWE have commended McIntyre for his professionalism in navigating the situation, even amidst delays that caught many by surprise.

Notably, the timing of discussions with McIntyre raised eyebrows, with previous Vice President Dan Ventrelle reportedly initiating contact in March, coinciding with McIntyre’s pivotal involvement in a major WrestleMania storyline opposite CM Punk. Additionally, McIntyre’s inclusion in promotional materials for Scotland’s Clash at the Castle event, despite his contract status being unresolved, adds another layer of intrigue to the ongoing saga.


“We’re told that the previous VP Dan Ventrelle had only reached out to McIntyre in March, when McIntyre had already been booked for a major WrestleMania match, a feud with CM Punk. Also, Drew McIntyre was actively being advertised for Scotland’s Clash at the Castle, even though he isn’t yet under contract for the show.”

As speculation swirls and fans eagerly await updates, McIntyre has maintained silence on the matter, opting not to publicly address his contract situation.

The ambiguity surrounding Drew McIntyre’s contract negotiations adds an intriguing subplot to his already illustrious career. Will he choose to extend his tenure with WWE, or could a new chapter be on the horizon? Stay tuned to Ringside News for further developments as this story continues to unfold.
