Drew McIntyre affirmed his back injury during the August 16 episode of WWE Raw. Drew McIntyre is enduring from a back injury, according to reports, and McIntyre confirmed this. It’s real, I have to admit. Mostly as I’ve been carrying the weight of 20 men in the WWE for three years, both in and out of the circle. And I do this with a smiling face because it is an honour.
This isn’t a job; it’s my dream! Previously in the segment, McIntyre chastised Roman Reigns for continuing to work a part-time schedule having held the company’s 2 world titles. After defeating The Head of the Table for the Indisputable Universal WWE Championship at Clash of the Castle on September 3, The Scottish Warrior stated that he intends to wrestle every week, on every show, including live events.
McIntyre, wounded or not, presented a physical match against Kevin Owens after their verbal duel. As previously stated, Owens announced during his promo with McIntyre that he was returning to his Prized Fighter persona. The Usos’ outside interference resulted in a DQ for Owens vs. McIntyre. McIntyre was forced to withdraw from a pair of WWE live events over the weekend due to an injury, and he is expected to miss house shows for the near future.
Clash at the Castle
Nevertheless, the fact that he had been able to wrestle Owens weeks prior to actually Clash at the Castle is encouraging for fans hoping to see him defeat Reigns in Cardiff, Wales. Even though Reigns is the overwhelming favourite to maintain his unified world title, there is speculation that McIntyre could depose the Tribal Chief next to 70,000+ fans in his native United Kingdom. WWE has declared a face-to-face match between Reigns & McIntyre for this Friday’s SmackDown.
McIntyre, who was given a 50/50 chance of defeating Reigns at Clash at the Castle in the most recent betting odds, did not provide a precise timeline for when this project would be accessible for viewers to follow. WWE Clash at the Castle will actually occur on September 3rd, and will be the first WWE PPV or PLE to take place in the United Kingdom since Insurrextion 2003, as well as the first major WWE PPV or PLE to take place in the United Kingdom since WWE SummerSlam 1992.
