Dave Meltzer Addresses Drew McIntyre’s WWE Future: “He’s Not Going Anywhere”

Drew McIntyre

Drew McIntyre picked up a win on Raw that was so notable Dave Meltzer thinks it means that he’s staying put in WWE.

Drew McIntyre pinned Cody Rhodes on WWE Raw in Anaheim, California putting a big dent in The American Nightmare’s momentum ahead of his WrestleMania main event against Roman Reigns.

Although McIntyre had some help from The Bloodline’s Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa, his win marked the first time Rhodes had been pinned since losing to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39. It was also only the second time Rhodes has been pinned since he returned to WWE at WrestleMania 38 in 2022.

What makes the win more remarkable is Drew McIntyre might not be a WWE Superstar after WrestleMania 40. Speculation about McIntyre’s contract has run wild for almost a year but it seems his victory suggests he’s now going nowhere.

Drew McIntyre Set To Extend WWE Stay

Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained why the situation on Raw points to Drew McIntyre agreeing to stay put in WWE even though he might not have yet signed on the dotted line:

He’s not going anywhere, I think that’s pretty clear. Here’s the thing, one of the things that was up in the air was he wanted to be used well and obviously, he’s being used really well. He’s having a lot of fun with this portrayal.

It would not be smart because you never know when you leave and come back not if they’ll forget about you but if you’ll have the momentum. If Cody wins the title as he should then Drew is in theory now the top contender.

Drew McIntyre will be a part of the men’s Elimination Chamber in Australia and could find himself with a shot at Seth Rollins’ World Heavyweight Championship by the time WrestleMania rolls around.
