Details On Drew McIntyre's WWE Contract Status, Current Relationship With The Company

There has been plenty of speculation surrounding Drew McIntyre's WWE status since WrestleMania 39, and now a new update has emerged. Fightful Select reported Saturday that McIntyre's contract is up in early 2024; however, the former WWE Champion is currently not sure whether or not he will leave when that time comes. McIntyre has been working banged up for some time and wanted to make it through his WrestleMania match with GUNTHER and Sheamus before taking time off. It's also being said McIntyre has been considering the possibility that WrestleMania 40 in 2024 could be his last, as he's considering leaving WWE to explore his options elsewhere (though if that were to happen, he would leave the door open for a future return to WWE).

"The Scottish Warrior" has reportedly been frustrated with lack of communication within the company lately. While not currently involved in any storylines, McIntyre was reportedly not among those privy to the fact that he would be drafted to "WWE Raw" during the recent 2023 WWE Draft, and there have been pitches for turning him heel again. Fightful's sources are expecting some degree of pushback on this idea from McIntrye, who likes to be hands-on with his creative and has apparently been adamant in the past about not making drastic changes unless it makes sense.

The report also noted that WWE talent are not currently sure how  April's Endeavor deal will affect contracts going forward, despite the company approaching renewals differently in recent years. McIntyre has been under WWE contract since returning to "WWE NXT" in 2017 after a three-year run on the indie scene.
