The former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre was written off from WWE television after a brutal attack by Happy Corbin and Madcap Moss at Day 1 event. Later, it was revealed that he had been suffering from legitimate neck issues from long back. Now, we got an update about his return.
According to the Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Drew McIntyre has taken the ‘John Cena’ approach to recovery from his neck injury. Despite missing the Royal Rumble, McIntyre is expected to return for WrestleMania.
”Regarding McIntyre, he’s been doing rehab and decompression therapy on his neck. He’s taking the John Cena approach of double sessions six days a week and is pretty insistent he’ll make it back for WrestleMania,” said Meltzer.
Dave Meltzer previously reported that Drew McIntyre was an early favorite to win the Rumble match and get added to the main event picture at WrestleMania but plans have changed.
Even though McIntyre may not be able to win this year’s Royal Rumble, it is almost certain that The Scottish Warrior will have a big role to play at the Grandest Stage of Them All.
Meltzer also went on to detail about the extent of McIntyre’s injury and how WWE are keeping a close eye on him over the next week.
“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,” said Meltzer
