As previously noted, Drew McIntyre was pulled from the December 9th 2022 edition of WWE Smackdown after being “disqualified to compete” in the unified tag team titles match and it was later reported that McIntyre suffered a ruptured eardrum.
McIntyre is still recovering from his injury but was interviewed during the “Best of 2022” edition of WWE RAW and teased his next WWE feud for when he returns…
“I’ve got my eyes on Gunther with the Intercontinental Championship. I see the chatter on social media, I see what happened with himself and Sheamus, I saw the battles. I love competition, I’m a former Intercontinental Champion and I would love to tangle with that man.” (quote courtesy of 411Mania.com)
