Will Drew McIntyre Still Be In WWE?
The very last line of the press release is the one a lot of fans will be paying attention to given Drew McIntyre is listed among the stars slated to be part of the show.
Drew McIntyre’s time in WWE appears to be coming to an end as his contract with the company expires after WrestleMania 40. While there is every chance the Scottish star could re-sign with the company, this situation has been in play for a year now so it seems he will take a big shift to end the stalemate.
