Drew McIntyre To Miss Next Week's WWE Raw for Mystery "Outside Gig"

Scottish superstar Drew McIntyre, fresh off his recent return to the WWE circuit, has announced his unavailability for the upcoming episode of “Raw.” PWInsider revealed that McIntyre would be off the ring for an undisclosed “outside gig,” leaving fans eager for more details about the mystery project.

Only a fortnight since his return, McIntyre has already made waves in the WWE universe, confronting Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER after his victory over Matt Riddle at Money in the Bank. However, “Raw” enthusiasts must endure a Monday without McIntyre’s thrilling performance on screen. His absence, initially announced during last night’s “Raw,” was chalked up to “company business,” with no further specifics revealed.

McIntyre’s departure means he won’t be present to support Riddle during his second face-off with GUNTHER for the coveted Intercontinental Title. Despite this, Riddle seemed unfazed, having successfully banned GUNTHER’s allies from ringside, Giovanni Vinci and Ludwig Kaiser.

Drew McIntyre’s Future in WWE

No official statement about McIntyre potentially missing more “Raw” dates has been released, implying this absence is likely a one-time event. This deviation from the usual schedule heightens the intrigue surrounding McIntyre’s future in the WWE, especially considering his rumored face-off with GUNTHER at SummerSlam and his ongoing contract discussions with the promotion.

McIntyre, the former WWE Champion, is expected to challenge GUNTHER for the Intercontinental Title at SummerSlam, an anticipated event scheduled for August 5 at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan. The timing of his absence adds an extra layer of intrigue to the match-up, with fans speculating how his outside gig might impact his preparation for the fight.

Simultaneously, the WWE Universe is abuzz about McIntyre’s contract negotiations with WWE. His current deal is set to expire at the end of this year, leading to much speculation about his future in the WWE. 

The Impact of Drew McIntyre’s Absence

As the WWE gears up for next week’s episode of “Raw” without McIntyre, all eyes will be on Matt Riddle as he once again challenges GUNTHER for the Intercontinental Title. Meanwhile, the details of McIntyre’s mystery project and the outcome of his contract negotiations remain tantalizing cliffhangers for fans worldwide.

The coming weeks will be pivotal for McIntyre and the WWE universe. As the countdown to SummerSlam begins, the anticipation for McIntyre’s potential showdown with GUNTHER and the reveal of his mystery project grows, making for an exciting period in WWE history.
