Drew McIntyre became a major star in recent months thanks to his incredible social media game, where he would roast the likes of CM Punk, Seth Rollins and more. Even after his WrestleMania 40 World Title loss, McIntyre has shown why he is a true warrior as he has been working the WWE European tour while injured.

McIntyre and Punk’s feud reached a new level at WrestleMania 40 when CM Punk attacked McIntyre after his match with Seth Rollins, creating an opening for Money in the Bank winner Damian Priest to cash in his briefcase and claim the title. This betrayal not only cost McIntyre the championship, but it also fueled his determination to seek retribution against Punk.

According to PWInsider Elite, Drew McIntyre is currently pushing through injuries during the ongoing WWE European Tour. Despite the annual post-WrestleMania tour of the U.K. already making stops in Birmingham, London, and Cardiff, Wales, the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion has been fulfilling his advertised matches, despite grappling with lingering injuries.

Social media posts from the WWE U.K. tour reveal McIntyre sporting an arm sleeve on his left arm during matches this week. It was noted that McIntyre suffered a “badly hyperextended elbow,” likely during his WrestleMania 40 clash with Seth “Freakin'” Rollins, but is soldiering on through the discomfort. We will have to wait and see whether McIntyre will end up taking time off later for the injury, as he has still yet to sign new contract with WWE.
