WWE Superstar Drops Major Hint on Return of Former WWE Champion

WWE Championship

In the world of professional wrestling, a significant update has emerged concerning a well-known figure who has been absent from the scene since WrestleMania 39. The details of this development, however, will be revealed in the following paragraphs.

The individual in question is none other than Drew McIntyre, the former world champion. Ridge Holland, a fellow WWE superstar, has provided an intriguing update on McIntyre’s status. McIntyre last stepped into the ring at WrestleMania, where he faced off against Sheamus and Gunther in a triple-threat match for the Intercontinental Championship. Following the match, there were speculations about McIntyre’s future with WWE.

Reports from backstage suggested that McIntyre’s contract with WWE was nearing its end, and negotiations for a new deal were underway. During a conversation with Cultaholic Wrestling, Holland was asked about McIntyre. Holland’s response was quite optimistic, stating, “He’s fine, Drew’s fine. Yeah, he is probably in the gym as we speak, lifting two cows. He is fine; Drew is good. I don’t know for sure, I don’t know anything. But I think whether it is a month from now, two months from now, or three months from now, you will see Drew McIntyre back in WWE.” [7:15 – 7:40]

While there are no definitive reports on McIntyre extending his contract with WWE, he was recently announced to make an appearance on behalf of the company. Holland’s prediction suggests that McIntyre, who was drafted to the red brand earlier this year, will make his return to RAW.

There are whispers that WWE is planning a grand return for McIntyre around MITB 2023. The company’s creative team reportedly wants to reintroduce McIntyre into the storyline by the time of the Money in the Bank weekend. PWInsider shared an update on McIntyre’s potential return at MITB 2023, stating, “There has been a push within WWE creative to have McIntyre back into the storyline mix by [the] Money in the Bank weekend in London. Given his status as one of the company’s top European stars, that makes the most sense. We are told there were meetings last week regarding pitches for McIntyre’s return as he hasn’t been seen since WrestleMania 39 and was drafted to Monday Night RAW in the weeks after.” [H/T: PWInsider via Ringside News]

As the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match approaches, several fans have speculated that McIntyre could make a surprise return during the match.
