Why Drew McIntyre left during Smackdown main event
Submitted by Aaron Rift on 04/11/2019 at 10:17 AM

As previously noted, Drew McIntyre left the ringside area during the Smackdown Live six-man tag team main event. While there was speculation that McIntyre got hurt, Dave Meltzer of said that wasn't the case and it was actually something that was planned:

ďIn fact, he was not hurt at all. He was booked that way. Everything went exactly like it was supposed to go. This is the ideaÖwhich Iím not even knocking the idea, Iím just telling you what the idea was. The idea was that Drew McIntyre lost at Wrestlemania to Roman Reigns, management felt it was very important to protect Drew McIntyre because they need him to be a top guy now. Sheamus and Cesaro were going to lose the match, so they didnít want Drew anywhere near the visible scene, even on the losing side of a six-man tag, they didnít want him there. The idea is that when you watch the match and Kofi Kingston pins I think Sheamus with the Trouble in Paradise, you forget that Drew is even in the match and therefore heís not hurt.ď
