A major WWE star has lifted the lid on their injury problems.

WWE is currently dealing with something of an injury crisis with Rhea Ripley, Seth Rollins, CM Punk, and Dominik Mysterio all out of action. Despite the setbacks, Punk and Mysterio have continued to appear on television.

Meanwhile, it’s also been reported that Drew McIntyre is dealing with an injury, believed to be a badly hyperextended elbow. However, according to the man himself, these reports may have underestimated the issue.

Speaking on The Pat McAfee Show, McIntyre blamed CM Punk for fracturing his elbow. It had previously been noted that the injury occurred during his match with Seth Rollins at WrestleMania — just moments before he got involved with Punk.

You know what happened at Mania when [CM Punk] attacked me from behind and swept my legs out? He fractured my elbow. Broken bones in it. You know what I did the next day? I wrestled in a four-way match, and I would have won if it wasn’t for CM Punk.

I’ve been taping up every week. I did a European tour where I wrestled Jey Uso every single night. He’s sitting on his couch, collecting his big paycheck, thinking he can kiss corporate arse and keep cashing those checks while I’m putting in work. Why is the bad guy? Who is the delusional one? Who is the hypocrite?

Drew McIntyre Never Wanted To Leave WWE

In the same interview, Drew McIntyre denied wanting to leave WWE.

The Scottish star said he’d learned to play the backstage game, and with all of the big deals being made at the top of the company, he had no intention of leaving. McIntyre added he wanted things to be right for his family — something he says Nick Khan and Triple H were more than happy to accommodate.

It’s believed McIntyre’s new deal runs for three years.
