Drew McIntyre’s Contract Expiring Amid WWE Exit Rumours

Hamish Woodward

Former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre could be the next man released from the WWE, amid the backlash from Vince McMahon’s return to the company.

The Scottish Psycopath has been a hit since his WWE return in 2017, winning the NXT Championship almost immediately, before a hit run on the main roster.

He made history in 2020 when he became the first ever British wrestler to win the Royal Rumble match.

He followed it up with a huge victory at WrestleMania 36, albeit in front of a lack of fans. He defeated Brock Lesnar to become WWE Champion, being the first Briton to win the prestigious championship.

Fightful Select reported that Drew McIntyre’s contract is set to expire before the end of the year, and he is waiting until closer to the time to renew his deal.

The Scot had nine months left on his contract, and does not currently see the value in signing a new deal at this present time.

McIntyre could be put off by the recent return of Vince McMahon to the company, following a disappointing second night of WrestleMania.

McIntyre lost to Gunther, in a match also including Sheamus, which was not the issue. This was one of the best matches on the card, and Drew put in a fantastic performance.

This could do well to earn him a bumper deal with the WWE going forward, but the 37 year-old could be eyeing a move to AEW in the future, if the backstage morale in WWE does not improve.

Drew McIntyre’s release would be huge for the WWE, given how invested they have been in him in recent years.

He is a two-time WWE Champion, and main evented the first British stadium show, where he lost to Roman Reigns at Clash at the Castle in a packed Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

Drew McIntyre has not commented on his potential WWE release, neither has WWE made a statement on the matter.

We will continue to update this page if any more information regarding a potential contract termination comes out.
