Drew McIntyre Never Seriously Considered Leaving WWE

Drew McIntyre was always likely to stay with WWE

Many top-name WWE stars are in contract years, with WWE waiting on several main event talents to put pen-to-paper on new deals, following the re-signing of stars such as Charlotte Flair, Cody Rhodes, and Drew McIntyre.

In the case of McIntyre, reports of contract negotiations between the former WWE Champion and WWE seemed to stretch on for months before ‘Irn Dru’ signed a new deal at the end of April. When asked by PWInsider Elite if he considered wrestling elsewhere, McIntyre stated he never truly considered leaving WWE:

"It was never a consideration. I'm wrestling with WWE. I don't think in the sense am I gonna go wrestle somewhere else, this is where I want to wrestle. I don't want to be anywhere else but our family has gone through a lot over the past year. Things in my own family and my wife's sister unfortunately passed a year ago yesterday. That was very difficult and I felt like I'm gonna have to take some serious time for my family. There was a period where I was like maybe I'm gonna have to take a little break and come back and some uncertainty. Thankfully as a family, we came together and WWE gave me the time I needed whenever I needed it during that period and in the end, as a family we came together. We had a conversation about what was best for us. The company was unbelievable with that and thankfully everybody is in a great place right now," said McIntyre.

McIntyre is currently out of action, but he will slot back into the World Heavyweight Championship scene upon his return to in-ring action.
