Drew McIntyre's future in WWE at risk?

Drew McIntyre stepped into a WWE ring for the last time at WrestleMania 39, when he faced Gunther and Sheamus in a Triple Threat Match in which the Austrian athlete confirmed his Intercontinental Champion. Since then, only absences have arrived for him, which have inevitably fueled the rumors of his close abandonment of the company.

For now, no official confirmation has come, but according to some rumors, the Scottish Warrior's contract with WWE will expire by the end of the year, and the person concerned would not have accepted a new agreement. According to an update from Dave Meltzer in his Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the Scot would be close to returning to WWE, but this could be his last run: "Because McIntyre is currently working with the idea that there's a good chance he's finishing, he could make a big title bid as a challenger and ultimately walk away."

Speaking on his podcast The Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette spoke thus of Drew McIntyre and his situation: "Drew McIntyre worked so hard to get to the top of WWE but something went wrong.

He has the size of him on his side, the skills on the mic and in the ring but after his title run it was lost. Something hasn't worked to make sure he can stay at the top." Interviewed by Darren Stone for Faction 919, McIntyre had revealed that the success at the Royal Rumble 2020, a victory that allowed him to win the title mentioned by Cornette, was one of the most important moments of his career: "The mere thought to fight Brock Lesnar in such an important event made me very happy.

Eliminating the Beast at the Royal Rumble was really cool, one of the best moments of my entire career. Brock was making his voice big and had eliminated most of the competitors, but I found the right flash to knock him out of the ring. I get goosebumps when I think about it."
