Submitted by Aaron T-Bar Rift on 02/23/2021 at 11:38 AM

Mike Johnson of is reporting that Drew McIntyre was backstage at Tropicana Field despite not appearing on this week's episode of WWE RAW.

The belief is that WWE made a creative decision to not have McIntyre on the show with Dave Meltzer of explaining the situation:

"Well, I think that the feeling is that if he was on the show then heíd have to kill Miz and they didnít want him killing Miz this week, because what would you do with him on the show if your direction was Lashley getting a title shot next week?"

"I mean the thing is him being there would have been a negative because then youíll be going, ĎWhy didnít he get a title shot? And why isnít he beating up Miz immediately because heís the one who got screwed. Why isnít he beating up Lashley for screwing him?'"
