Drew McIntyre said “I don’t plan to be anywhere else” when he was recently asked about his WWE status.

There were reports earlier this year around WrestleMania season that Drew McIntyre was unhappy with his WWE status as far as the creative process. There were also details about his contract status in WWE while noting that his WWE deal will expire in the first half of 2024.

Recently, it was reported by PWInsider Elite that WWE added time to McIntyre’s contract to make up for the three months that he was off between WrestleMania 39 in April and Money in the Bank in July.

Currently, Drew McIntyre is on the Raw brand part as part of a makeshift tag team with Matt Riddle. They have recently been having issues with other Raw tag teams like The Viking Raiders and The New Day.

Earlier this week, the former two-time WWE Champion Drew McIntyre was promoting WWE’s upcoming India show by talking to the Hindustan Times, Drew spoke about how excited he was to wrestle in India.

“I mean for WWE to be here, it’s very important. We’ve not had a live event since 2017, but we’re here now. And for me, this is a bucket list moment. I’ve wanted to wrestle in India my entire life. The chance to come to India in November for the first time had such a great time and such a great experience. And I’d already felt the love from the Indian fans through social media.”

“And the thousands of messages I’ve got over the years, especially when I was WWE champion and the amount of love from the fans to feel it in person in Mumbai was unreal. And now, to be back, that same feeling when I’m walking through the airport and I must have taken 200 pictures walking through the airport. Just the amount of WWE fans we have here is unbelievable.”

Drew McIntyre Reacts to Question About WWE Future

Regarding his WWE future, Drew McIntyre did make it clear he doesn’t plan to be anywhere else.

“I mean, I keep reading the internet myself. I just saw something earlier. The internet keeps talking about my future, I guess. But my focus is on the here and now like I don’t look to the future, I don’t look to the past, I look to the present.”

“And my job right now is just making sure we give everybody in Hyderabad the best show possible and I’ll continue to give the best performance I can give at every show and I can say I don’t plan to be anywhere else. That’s as much as I can give.”

At Friday’s Superstar Spectacle event in Hyderabad, India, Drew teamed up with Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn to defeat his former ally Jinder Mahal (3MB forever), Sanga & Veer in a six-man tag team match. Apparently, all six men danced together after it was over.
