Amidst swirling speculation surrounding Drew McIntyre’s future in the world of wrestling, reports emerged months ago indicating that his contract would reach its conclusion shortly after WrestleMania 40, although the exact timeline remained uncertain.

At WrestleMania 40, McIntyre’s journey took an unexpected turn when he captured the World Title for the third time in WWE by challenging Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Emerging victorious in a thrilling encounter, McIntyre seized the opportunity after becoming the #1 contender by triumphing in the Men’s Elimination Chamber Match at the PLE-themed event in Australia several weeks prior.

However, McIntyre’s triumph was short-lived, as an unforeseen twist saw CM Punk interject himself into the fray, leading to a shocking turn of events. Despite delivering two devastating Claymore kicks and having his wife by his side at ringside, McIntyre found himself blindsided by Punk’s assault. To compound matters, Damian Priest capitalized on the chaos, cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase to clinch the coveted title.

Recent reports from Pwinsider shed light on the ongoing negotiations between McIntyre and WWE, revealing that a new deal has yet to be finalized despite weeks of discussions. The primary sticking point appears to be the terms of the proposed agreement, prolonging the impasse between the two parties.


According to sources cited in the report, McIntyre’s current contract is set to expire within the “5-6 week” timeframe. Should an agreement fail to materialize, McIntyre could potentially part ways with the company as early as late May or early June.

As the countdown to McIntyre’s contract expiration continues, wrestling enthusiasts eagerly await news of his future endeavors. Will McIntyre opt to extend his tenure with WWE, or will he embark on a new chapter in his illustrious career? Share your insights and predictions in the comments section below.
