Booker T Comments On Drew McIntyre Possibly Leaving WWE

Could Drew McIntyre leave WWE? Booker T has given his thoughts

Drew McIntyre’s contract status has been the subject of much speculation, after it emerged that the former WWE Champion’s current deal is set to expire in early 2024, with the two sides believed to be far apart with regards to negotiations over a new deal.

Whilst there is plenty of time for McIntyre and WWE to agree on a new contract, there is still the possibility that Irn Dru leaves WWE once more in 2024. No matter where he goes, though, McIntyre is bound to be a star, and WWE Hall of Famer Booker T agrees, saying the following on the Hall of Fame podcast:

“I heard Drew McIntyre’s contract is coming up, and he may be leaving to move on to other things. I don’t know. I don’t know how true that is. Him not being in this [World Heavyweight Championship] tournament kind of says a little bit of something, right? We’ll see how that plays out,” said Booker.

Booker continued, noting that there are plenty of places for Drew to make money should he leave:

“I say keep it like it is. For me, it’s about guys being able to make money. I’m not looking for the monopoly in wrestling. I’m not looking to keep a guy if he don’t want to stay. If a guy want to leave, you let him leave. I think that right there opens up a little bit of everything as far as guys going from one side to the other and back. So if a guy want to leave, let him leave. Drew McIntyre, he’s put in work in WWE, not just once, but twice. He knows what that system is all about. One thing about being in the system, after you’ve been in the system sometimes for so long, you want to get out,” continued Booker, who himself wrestled across WCW, WWE, and TNA, before adding "Any company in the world. Any company in the world, he'd be a star.”
