When Drew McIntyre is expected back on WWE television following post-Wrestlemania disappearance

Drew McIntyre has not appeared on WWE television since the Wrestlemania 39 PLE. Internet speculation about McIntyre’s WWE status has been fueled by his Twitter profile going “dark” and him not appearing on the April 14th 2023 edition of Smackdown.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com discussed McIntyre’s status…

“He’s not gonna be back at TV next week, he’s not gonna be back for a couple more weeks. They announced the Madison Square Garden show which is in July, and he was not announced for that show either. But that’s not necessarily… I was just told it’s a couple more weeks. And we’ll see what happens from there.”

“There is an injury, and there is a contract issue. Although the contract issue, his contract doesn’t come due for many, many months. But as far as signing a new deal, there’s nothing new. They’re still far apart.” (quotes courtesy of WrestleTalk.com)

The 2023 WWE Draft starts on Friday, April 28th and it remains to be seen if McIntyre will resurface at that point.
