Drew McIntyre says that leaving WWE for another wrestling promotion was “never a consideration”

During an interview with PWInsider.com, Drew McIntyre talked about his decision to sign a new contract with WWE and if he thought about leaving for another promotion…

“It was never a consideration. I’m wrestling with WWE. I don’t think in the sense am I gonna go wrestle somewhere else, this is where I want to wrestle. I don’t want to be anywhere else but our family has gone through a lot over the past year. Things in my own family and my wife’s sister unfortunately passed a year ago yesterday. That was very difficult and I felt like I’m gonna have to take some serious time for my family. There was a period where I was like maybe I’m gonna have to take a little break and come back and some uncertainty. Thankfully as a family, we came together and WWE gave me the time I needed whenever I needed it during that period and in the end, as a family we came together. We had a conversation about what was best for us. The company was unbelievable with that and thankfully everybody is in a great place right now.”

“I want to be home more. I’m gonna have to try and find that balance because that’s where I’m at in my life now. Thankfully, thanks to Nick Khan and Triple H and WWE, we got there where I feel comfortable with my family and my wife and I feel comfortable. I’m gonna be able to give to the company and give to my family at the same time.” (quotes courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
