The Scottish Warrior Drew McIntyre was brutally attacked by Madcap Moss and Baron Corbin with steel chair after McIntyre’s match against Madcap Moss at Day 1 pay-per-view. Later, WWE announced that McIntyre sustained a neck injury after that attack. Now, we got an update about the Drew McIntyre’s in-ring return.
Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that Drew McIntyre had been dealing with a neck issue for months, and WWE wanted him to have it examined. He also noted that WWE was hoping that McIntyre recover quickly and could be back by WrestleMania.
“Legitimately, McIntyre’s neck has been bothering him for months and if he kept going, he was on the way to major surgery. As of a few days ago, the plan was for McIntyre to have the neck looked at extensively over the next week.”
Meltzer continued, “The hope is that it’s not bad and he can come back soon, at least by Mania, and that he won’t need surgery which will put him out for months. But right now nobody knows. From a timing standpoint it wasn’t good because Smackdown has no other full-time top face.”
